Magnum - Vicious Companions Lyrics




Don't invite the vicious companions
Though they're always at your side
Only waiting to take you a ride
Feel the creature rise inside you
With misguided ill intent
Look around, it's your only defence

On and on the story goes
Where it leads to we all know
What you give is what you get
What you give

See the hungry cry for the children
Watch the greedy call for more
And the self-ordained proceed to shut the door
When the needy run from the table
For they know there's nothing there
Hoping one day, will somebody care?

On and on the story goes
Where it leads to we all know
What you give is what you get
What you give is what you get

We've got to be good, got to be strong
The final approach is taking too long
Too late in the day, when everything's gone

Now the villain, he may prosper
And the thief might do as well
With amusement, their crimes they dispel
The promises they've broken
And the hearts they have betrayed
End to end they are carefully laid

On and on the story goes
Where it leads to we all know
What you give is what you get
What you give is what you get

On and on the story goes
Where it leads to we all know
What you give is what you get
What you give is what you get

Magnum Vicious Companions Comments
  1. skitch johnson

    Maybe greatly overlooked but not by us 🤘🏻🤘🏻

  2. Adamos Krajinović

    Remek djelo Genijusa...

  3. Robin Gallego

    Underrated track, sounds like David Bowie

  4. Sonfra

    One of their best songs ever.
    Unfortunately criminally overlooked.

  5. Barry Lee

    Politics in a nutshell. Signs of the eighties poverty through the eye of a storyteller

  6. Magnum

    totally class song from a sadly underated and often overlooked LP
