10000 MANIACS - Death Of Manolete Lyrics

[ lyrics: natalie merchant/music: j.c. lombardo ]There were women holding rosariesOn the day manolete diedTeenage girls in soft white dressesStanding silent peace respectingGroups of boys held in their handsThe fragments of a shattered idolThe old men with their traditions challengedRefrained from tearsNeck neck hookPoles of woodThe picadores stood eyes ablazeTo view brutal contestIn the vale of yearsCourage unfailingAgility exhaustedYouth entered challengeReached for title shelvedPatrons in attendanceTo disarm a common mythHomage played to the victor of immortalityCloaked in bold tonesIn the stockyard the beastsDid climb their barriersBid by a frenzied ringBred for one purpose onlyTo die in man's sportDash against his spindleAn instant fell to woundingOn the daySwords penetratingOn the dayTorches ignitingOn the dayFlower wreaths encirclingThe dayOn the day
