Wild Pigeons

from Animals by Ben Hermanski

lyrics

John had got pigeons and slaughtered them all
To sell Christians the blood of their Christ
And then he got hung by the root of his tongue
A result of this secular heist
And he smiled like a man who had finished his work
As he’s drawing his terminal breath
For murder is sin and the God of the Christians will punish the sinners by death (2x)

All these wild pigeons I offered them home
The one without sin he may cast the first stone
John, he may go and sell blood of their Christ and I’ll hatch my pigeons tonight (2x)

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
