The Cult

The Cult are a British rock band formed in 1983. They gained a dedicated following in Britain in the mid 1980s as a post-punk band with singles such as "She Sells Sanctuary", before breaking mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as "Love Removal Machine" and "Fire Woman". The band fuse a "heavy metal revivalist" sound with the "pseudo-mysticism ... of The Doors [and] the guitar-orchestrations of Led Zeppelin ... while adding touches of post-punk goth rock". Since their earliest form in Bradford during 1981, the band have had various line-ups; the longest-serving members are vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, the band's two songwriters. more »

The wild wide eye with her painted wing 
She crushed the gray boy 
Don't you know my selfishness was my suicide 
Her painted wing became my suicide, suicide

The whole world did not start to cry 
They just got inside me 
And now they walk behind me 
They walk behind me
They walk behind me
Oh lord
Like little dogs 
Like stony dogs, you know 
Stony dogs
Stony dogs

They walk behind me, oh lord
They walk
Behind me
Behind me, oh lord
