note:
NO MORE BULLFIGHTS !



THIS IS AGAINST BULLFIGHTS

" HUNGRY SPIRITS "
THE COLOUR OF BLOOD FEEDS MY THOUGHTS
THE COLOUR OF BLOOD IS THE IMAGE I SEE IN MY HEAD
THE COLOUR OF BLOOD IS THE COLOUR I DEARLY MISS
THE COLOUR OF BLOOD RETURNS IN MY DREAMS EACH NIGHT

I ASK MY KIDS AND WIFE TO JOIN
I DRESS FOR THE HAPPENING IN MY BEST SUIT
WE GO EXCITED FOR WHAT IS TO COME
THE IMAGE IN MY HEAD - THE COLOUR OF BLOOD

WE WALK TO THE ARENA
ADRENALINE IS FILLING OUR VEINS
IGNORING BANNERS - DEAF FOR PROTESTORS MESSAGE
WAITING FOR THE EVENT THE BULL TO BE TRAPPED

IN THE ARENA NICE DRESSED PEOPLE LIKE US
EXCITING MUSIC PLAYS WELL KNOWN THEMES
AN EMPTY CIRCLE WAITING FOR THE SHOW
A LONGING WAVE IS FILLING THE CROWD

A SMALL BULL IS BROUGHT INTO THE ARENA
HE RUNS BEWILDERED AROUND
THE BULL IS STABBED - HOW WE ENJOY THIS
HE GETS HIS FIRST WOUNDS WE WAITED FOR

AT LAST RED BLOOD STREAMS OUT OF HIS BODY
RED BLOOD THE IMAGE OF MY DREAMS
RED BLOOD FEEDING MY LIFE
MY LUST FOR BLOOD RETURNS

GOING HOME STILL EXCITED - IGNORING ALL PROTESTORS
TALKING ABOUT THE "SWEET SUFFERING" WE SAW
GOING HOME FILLED WITH ADRENALINE WE LIKE
SAW THE COLOUR OF BLOOD I DEARLY MISSED

THE BLOOD IMAGE HAS FADED
THE ADRENALINE HAS LEFT OUR BLOOD
NOW WE SUFFER BECAUSE THE SATISFACTION HAS GONE
ADDICTED TO OTHER'S SUFFERING -
ENDLESS VICTIM WE ARE
