about

The First Single from Felsen's Soon-to-be-release and eagerly-anticipated new album Blood Orange Moon. Also our first release on the Mystery Lawn label. Hurrah! Vultures throws down the gauntlet Felsen style "I wanna live where culture kills machines and decent melodies will haunt you in your dreams." It's a slow dance, slow burn for your last night on earth.

lyrics

I wanna live where culture kills machines
and decent melodies will haunt you in your dreams.
I wanna laugh once again before I die.
Do you think that you could try?
Do you need a reason why?

From the cradle to the amp to the grave
who’s life tonight will be saved.
If there’s vultures on your bones
but they just won’t leave you alone,
they just won’t leave you alone.

I believe in you, can you believe in me
when junk technology is the new mythology?
I’ve written you a song.
If you’d like to sing along
trust your feelings they’re not wrong.
Once you hear it then it’s gone.

From the cradle to the amp to the grave
who’s life tonight will be saved.
If there’s vultures on your bones
but they just won’t leave you alone,
they just won’t leave you alone.

If my afterlife
has got a lazy undertow,
you can feel my tempo slow,
feel the windy tarmac blow.
Like leaves on the breeze
beneath the rubble and debris,
broken glass, swarm of bees
we’re stardust you and me.

From the cradle to the amp to the grave
who’s life tonight will be saved.
If there’s vultures on your bones
but they just won’t leave you alone,
they just won’t leave you alone.
