Paul Buckberry – Quite Well Balanced lyrics

The report on tv was heard
While a lone vulture bore witness to death
He was pampered
He witnessed destruction
Cities made of matchsticks
Again he gorged

He witnessed green puss drain into the sea
Promoted to a guard
He watched steam spiralling up towards
A blood stained sky
And he watched
Quite Well Balanced

The report thundered on
To all blind and deaf mutes shrugging shoulders
He bore witness to the waters end
Sucked dry like a serum in a plauge
It began to dehydrate the legion

Until the land lay scarred
Everything the report sucked dry
And he watched
Quite Well Balanced

With voracity the report did not stop
On the universe it's great might was dropped
The report had clocked on

But it's back bone was gruel
The beast within had sucked out all life
It lay crippled
Growing the worse for wear
Like gingerbread floating in milk and water

Until at last
Long anhilation
It's might forever marred turned to dust
Without a cry

Human skulls stared entranced
The vulture flew
The vulture thought
