Vultures

Originally performed by Phish

(Anastasio/Marshall/Herman)
© Who Is She? Music, BMI

Blind me with ambition
like a razor to the throat
Cast aside your foolish pride
I'll cast the final vote
The feelings you've been waiting for
are clawing through your skin
And if you look above
you'll see the vultures moving in

Timing is everything
that much I know
Sometimes I'm faster
and sometimes I'm slow
Some days I'm patient
but sometimes I'm told
To go to the end of the line
But when I can't be
what's expected of me
I look at the clock
and say "this can't be"
Watching it pass
without reason or rhyme
I find myself drifting in time

I see the vultures moving in
I find myself drifting in time

Paulatek reminds me of The Bible
Andromeda was used, I think, before
My guess is that I'll never name this ghost well
But I think I hear him knocking at my door
(repeat)

Blind me with ambition
like a razor to the throat
Cast aside your foolish pride
I'll cast the final vote
The feelings you've been waiting for
are clawing through your skin
But if you look above
you'll see the vultures moving in
