Alan Parsons Project, The - Vulture Culture Lyrics




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 the 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 you 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

Alan Parsons Project, The Vulture Culture Comments
  1. Luciano Barcelos

    Alan Parsons e Eric Woolfson ao meu ver, corretamente convocaram muito bem o David Paton para os vocais dessa música. Sem dúvida a grande música deste album Vulture Culture de 1984.

  2. Bob Rodriguez

    I agree, the rhythm and vocals remind me a lot of the "Breakfast In America" single from Supertramp. Nice one that should have been a much bigger hit.

  3. Noel Dorch

    You are always talking about your problems. Let' us think about me.

  4. Noel Dorch

    A Special album, save for a special time.

  5. 陳威廷

    Let's talk about me for a minute
    Well how do you think
    I feel about what's been going on
    Let's talk about me for a minute
    Well how do you think
    I feel about what's gone wrong
    Let's talk about dreams
    I never learned to read the signs
    Let's think about what it all means
    I never seem to have the time
    Let's talk about you and your problems
    All that I seem to do is spend the night
    Just talking 'bout you and your problems
    No matter what I say I can't get it right
    Don't think about dreams
    Is it all a waste of time
    Don't think about what it all means
    If you are a friend of mine
    Talk about me, for a minute
    I'm the one who's losing
    Talk about me, for a minute
    I'm the one who's always losing out
    And how do you think
    I feel about what's been going on
    Let's talk about me for a minute
    Well how do you think
    I feel about what's gone wrong
    Let's think about dreams
    We never seem to have the time
    Let's talk about what it all means
    If you are a friend of mine
    Let's talk about me
    I'm the one who's losing out
    I'm the one who's losing out
    I'm the one who's losing out, losing out
    Talk about me, for a minute
    I'm the one who's losing
    Talk about me, for a minute
    I'm the one who's always losing out

    Richard Marx???

  7. Pablo Cervantes Arias

    Although I don't quite like the Parsons' albums after Ammonia Avenue, I do like this song very much.

  8. Craig Davis

    Black Milk/Royce Da 5'9-Losing Out!!!

    sastal

    Scary what they did to it! As long as TAPP were paid.

  9. sheri withdog

    again ! the music resembles Super tramp not Alan Parsons.

    luis marcelo inostroza bidart

    Who cares of that????...

    Danny Zane

    Supertramp was never this good.

    Gaston Calandra

    It could be a resemble, you may be right, in every decade the music seems to soud very equal between them, same sounds, same sintethizers, same vocals arrangenments, in order to deliver a good, commercial and still the same music with the ideology of a group. Nevertheless compare Zakatek with Roger Hudson is like a comparisson of apples and oranges, they are all fruits, but different flavor. Greetings from Argentina

  10. blackleesecond

    a jewel of music!

  11. Rex Renart

    Excellent song, I love this part 1:36...
    And this part too 3:13... :D

  12. carlos ferreyra

    Great zakatek singer.

  13. Marco Pereira

    Isto sim foram foram grandes grupos

  14. Daniel Burns

    this song only went to #56 on the pop charts in 1985!!!

    John Donwood

    That's because works of art are not understood by the masses.

  15. Ahmet can Çağatay

    Wonderful 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

  16. gremmiehodad

    Always reminded me of Supertramp!

    ROY BATTY 2019

    Supertramp and APP are cousins bands, great both!!!

    Roby Lazarus

    Strange, thats what i thought as well.

    sastal

    @ROY BATTY 2019 Yes, forever beloved. John Helliwell and Alan Parsons have toured together.

  17. Wally Rebelparker

    ZA-ZA-ZOOM!!!!!!!!!!

  18. David Ringlein

    Snake eating its tail, Satans eye... bad news. This song is decent tho.

    Lord C Wise Allah

    David Ringlein lmao

    Dark Fact

    Esoteric symbolism doesnt mean Satan.
    You could imagine that some people wanted to destroy the real meaning of these symbols for some purpose...

    Nien Nunb

    clearly its a Vulture-Snake

    Danny Zane

    Not Satan, idiot. Ouroboros. Learn to *read* now and again. You're welcome.

  19. Randolph the frog & jack

    I still think this album exhibits some of their best work.

    Roby Lazarus

    Randolph the frog & jack, Agreed with you. Thanks.

    Martin Lauridsen

    Yeah it is.
    Next comes sterotomy. And ammonia avenue.
