Thread: Heavy rock lyrics

  1. #1

    Heavy rock lyrics

    A lot of people diss heavy rock music as brain dead noise

    But it's very close to classical music in its intensity and some of the lyrics are superb


    Judas Priest

    Up here in space , looking down on you

    My lasers trace , everything you do

    You think you have private lives , think nothing of the kind

    I am made of metal , my circuits gleam

    I am perpetual , I keep the country clean

    I am electric , electric eye , I am electric , electric spy


    ANVIL, winged assassins

    Machines made for killing at mach speed and more
    Sleek in design and loaded for war
    Soaring death , no escape
    Certain death , widows weep

    Alice in chains

    I believe them bones , are me

    Some would say , we are born into a grave

    I feel so alone , I'm gonna end up a big old pile of .....them bones


    What I am trying to say it's not all about tits and bums

    4th line a bit unexpected.

    They threw that in to appeal to their older fan base

    Sludge, can't you desist? Suggesting those lyrics are anything other than total crap is ludicrous.

    Get back to your evening wankathon session.

    Legal channels have been exhausted
    Direct action is the last recourse

    Say no to hairy herberts who can't sing! Here's some real music with profound lyrics. As a bonus, wicked riffs performed by Uncle Bulgaria.

    Judas Priest was the first ever band I saw. They were supporting Cardiff's own Budgie at Barry Memorial Hall and it was the avian combo that I went to see. Anyway, enough of that old tosh....

    How about this for prophetic lyrics in the late seventies from another Cardiff band i.e. Lone Star

    The Bells of Berlin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asM8683vfzM)

    I can hear the bells ringing and echoing over Berlin
    Feel the emotion and sadness that now is within
    As the city stands so tall
    It's imprisoned behind the wall
    One day it must fall
    Over and over I ask myself is this a dream
    I can hardly imagine the sadness the city has seen
    There will come a day
    When the chains will fall away
    I can feel sadness
    I can feel joy
    Between the two i'm torn

    Day by day now, I can hear people sing
    Life must go on
    Till the city's reborn again
    Oh oh
    The bells that are ringing are calling you
    Sure I'll be watching the world go by
    Search for an answer
    There's one to be found
    Though that it seems that it's miles away
    Its here on the ground

    Very true

    Just between us

    I think it's time to recognise

    The spaces inbetween ......leave room .....for you and I to grow


    Living on a lighted stage approaches the unreal
    For those who think and feel
    In touch with some reality
    Beyond the gilded cage
    ill equipped to act
    With insufficient tact
    One must put up barriers
    To keep oneself intact

    Up here in space , looking down on you

    My lasers trace , everything you do

    You think you have private lives , think nothing of the kind

    I am made of metal , my circuits gleam

    I am perpetual , I keep the country clean

    I am electric , electric eye , I am electric , electric spy


    ANVIL, winged assassins

    Machines made for killing at mach speed and more
    Sleek in design and loaded for war
    Soaring death , no escape
    Certain death , widows weep
    Sorry, but I can't take Anvil seriously after seeing them support Motorhead at St Davids Hall in 83. Lips pulling out a diddo to play the guitar with, and all the teenybobber headbangers, headbanging away at the front, wetting their jeans! The word pathetic sprang to mind. Sludgey I seem to remember you saying that you were on of those teenbopper 'bangers, eh?
