Siouxsie And The Banshees - The Execution Lyrics

This is what she saw

The unsuspecting horse was held fast to the ground
Whilst some soldiers slit open its belly

The guilty gypsy was shoved inside the horse's belly
With only his head protruding from the dying beast

Another soldier then sewed up the wound with the culprit inside
Condemned to die, along with the putrefying animal, screaming

The young countess [?]

    Sonic youth, are you?

  2. Pete Manning

    I could listen to her talk all day long

  3. Terrence Kelly

    Where is this song from its not on my tinderbox copy?!


    1986 cd release. With 3 other unreleased songs/istrumental.

  4. Hyæna

    Intro sounds quite like "The Top" from The Cure

  5. Francisco Castillo Quesada

    It gives me goosebumps!

  6. sharilyn thiel

    A trolling song for serial killers .

  7. Alexis Clay

    This song is so sad and beautifully, truly.

  8. Lenny Pearl

    Does anyone know what she says after "the young countess looked up"??? I've tried discerning that part of this song for years!

    Tommy Gets Stupid

    I thought it was ''barely restraining a giggle.''

    Chickie Moomoo

    I've heard "barely restraining a giggle" but cant quite make it out myself either.

  9. M. Vigil

    So hipnotic and rhythmic! I am entranced!

  10. M. Vigil

    OMG I did a cover version of this as a performance art piece for a Visual Art class....I got an "A" Although my fellow classmates didn't know what to think!
    Tis ok they were learning impaired!
    It's not their fault that they were ignorant and had no clue what this song was about! Ignorance is not bliss it's pathetic!
