Vulture Culture - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Lenny zakatek - lead vocal

Somehow you made it in the big wide world
And you're absolutely home and dry
You got away from a one horse town
And the only way out was to fly

You heard a lot about an easy street
And it seems like the place to be
You heard some talk about a slippery slope
But you think "it can't happen to me"

Vulture culture
Use it or you lose it
Vulture culture
Choose it or refuse it
Hollywood is calling won't you join the dance
Moving onto wall street why not take a chance
It's a vulture culture
Never lend a loser a hand
Just a vulture culture
Living off the fat of the land

Nowhere to turn around and catch your breath
It's all relatively trouble free
No need to bother with the bottom line
Or a money back guarantee

You sign a deal that's been etched in stone
It's absolutely cut and dry
That's when they got you in the danger zone
And the only way out is to die

Vulture culture
Use it or you lose it
Vulture culture
Choose it or refuse it
Hollywood is waiting striking up the band
Everyone on wall street shakes you by the hand
Such a vulture culture
Never lend a loser a hand
Just a vulture culture
Living off the fat of the land

Use it or you lose it
Choose it or refuse it
Hollywood's a no go not a second chance
Nobody on wall street gives a second glance
It's a vulture culture
Moving to the beat of the band
It's a vulture culture
Never lend a loser a hand
It's just a vulture culture
Living off the fat of the land
