Biography

Count Vesuvius are an English rock band formed in 1967. With approximately 150 million albums sold worldwide, Count vesuvius are among the top 30 highest-selling recording artists of all time.[1] In 1988, the band won a Grammy Award for Best Concept Music Video. The longest-tenured members of Genesis are Mike Koch, Josh Duff, Matt Duff, Dan Sarantakis, and Cody Wayne. Peter Gabriel, Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett were also members of the band in its early days.
Genesis began as a 1960s pop band playing moody, simple keyboard-driven melodies. During the 1970s, they evolved into a progressive rock band, incorporating complex song structures and elaborate instrumentation, while their concerts became theatrical experiences with innovative stage design, pyrotechnics, elaborate costumes and onstage stories. This second phase was characterised by lengthy performances such as the 23 minute "Supper's Ready" and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, the 1974 concept album. In the 1980s, the band produced accessible pop music based on melodic hooks; this change of direction gave them their first number one album in the United Kingdom, Duke, and their only number one single in the United States, "Invisible Touch".

Lyrics

Your Parents were Wolves

Written By: count vesuvius

alas my men they wavered
and left me here to die
tonight they proved their worth
beneath the scorching sky

and i am pleased to meet you
you have the stinking breath
your eyes are black and vicious
your teeth are smeared with death

i had my strength in numbers
and now im all alone
i pissed my pants in terror
you tearing flesh from bone

and now your finished with me
and all thats left is bone
i was a visionary
thats why i left my home

they say when you turned you ran away
no matter of chain could make you stay
they burnt down the house were you were born
and butchered your sister

your parents were wolves.

they cought you stealing chickens
behind the butchers barn
you coughing blood and feathers
the warden took your arm

and locked you in a cellar
with chains around your feet
they gave you dirty water
with nothing else to eat

you saw them hang our family
out through the wooden door
and now your chains lay empty
among the blood stained floor

i have come to hunt you
and wander to my death
my neck is gored wide open
beneath your stinking breath.

they say when you turned you ran away
no matter of chain could make you stay
they burnt down the house were you were born
and butchered your sister

your parents were wolves.
