Masked Jackal
Coroner Lyrics


I saw his face, on every channel
His slogans in all the papers
I heard people, repeat his words
I saw them shouting, his flag in their hands

I saw him making promises
I heard him talk about life
But I saw his fingers too
They were crossed behind his back

Darling of the TV screen
Manipulator of the purse strings
Master of the spoken words
Jackal with connections

Worshipped by the masses
Leader with ulterior motives

(All talk and no do)
(Is neither a good offense or defense)
(Get with it boys and girls)
(Your house needs to be put in order too)

His slate, clean as snow
Covers over his dark past
To be in league with workers
Pictures he loved to see

But I read in his eyes
Promotion reality
He played his part to the end
Shot leaving a shambles

Unfortunatly one of the most underratet trash bands....but I like tem very much...great music cool lyrics....

One of the best thrash bands, I put them beside Megadeth - but Coroner was much more complex and technical. And this is EUROPEAN band, formed about 1985 (if I remember correctly). I hope they will return. And they had great lyrics, opposite of Slayer - they made albums with referals to angels, God, not Satan, demons, etc.

Serious on that rumor? I loved Coroner, had most of the first CD's.. hated that they split... they weren't about speaking a message or anything, just JAMMING.
