lyrics

In the raging storm of reality
Fragile creatures cling to straws of delusion

Rhyme and reason traded for a glimpse of hope
Sense and purpose of existence misconstrued

The biggest asylum of all institutionalized
Proceeding to spread the greatest misconception of all times

Nurturing the vultures
Keep the fire burning
Keep the flames ablaze
Keep nurturing the vultures
For another million days

Like vultures they keep reaching out their claws
Finding easy prey in those anxious and weak minded

Accepted, tolerated, sanctioned
Ancient form of nonsense artificially kept alive

Pouring oil into their reeking poisonous fire
The parasite seems to have found the ideal host

Nurturing the vultures
Keep the fire burning
Keep the flames ablaze
Keep nurturing the vultures
For another million days

It's part of human nature as the nature of all things
To follow the path of least resistance

Confined in a self-imposed straitjacket of the mind
The gift of reason being left untouched

Since aeons estranging our kind from reality
Nothing but sand in the gears of humanity
Petrified philosophy
Lest we forget

Nurturing the vultures
Keep the fire burning
Keep the flames ablaze
Keep nurturing the vultures
For another million days
