THE BEAST IS FEEDING
(Gavin Richardson)

Ah, the shutter's locking
Ah, the tongues are talking

Ah, the sun is sinking
Ah, the Turk is sleeping

Ah, the heart is beating
Ah, The Beast is Feeding

Ah, the strings are playing
Ah, the shepherd's praying

Ah, the mother's grieving
Ah, The Beast is Feeding

And when she looked into his
Eyes she found her will to resist
Him was gone

Ah, the cradle's rocking
Ah, the wolf is stalking

Ah, St. Cyril's weeping
Ah, The Beast is Feeding

Tonight there'll be no praying
Tonight no children playing

Tonight no church bells ringing
Tonight no angles singing

Tonight the moon is bleeding
Tonight… The Beast is Feeding

And when she looked into his
Eyes she found her will to resist
Him was gone

And when she looked into his
Eyes she found her will to resist
Him was gone

And when she looked into his
Eyes she found her will to resist
Him was gone
