Howard Jones
Assault and battery

The lives were taken
for feasts at the table
a life of misery
ending with a shock
brutal murder (brutal murder)
all hands to the slaughter
mass torture
all hands to the knife
and i can hear the screams
with the knife, the jolt, the wring
they must follow in our dreams
carrying a twisted sting
children's stories with their farmyard favourites
at the table in a different disguise
don't talk to me of health
or something someone else will do
we're talking about the act
of taking life for me and you
and i hear their screams
