"Being Boiled" as written by and Phil/marsh Oakey....
Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your seri-culture
Little people like your offspring
Boiled alive for some gods stocking
Buddha's watching, Buddha's waiting
Just because the kid's an orphan
Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
People don't forget this torture
Just because you call her mother
Doesn't mean that she's your better
Once more with the voice of Buddha
He'll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim
Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your seri-culture
He'll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim
Listen to the voice of Buddha

    General CommentThis is a cover of a 1978 song by The Human League. Although The Human League were in the 80s a synthpop group, that far back they had kind of a cold machine-ish pop, Kraftwerk-influenced. So the original song is rather odd. I think I prefer the Beborn Beton cover.
