about

feat. Zahn Swart (vocals)

lyrics

In a smoked out room, is where I met you
You were clad in black and grey
And you heard the notes from the devil's lyre
That tore your heart away
And you went off into the darkest night
That forgotten hill
But you returned, right next to me
You were to close to see

This town’s light, the city night is smoldering
Blistered asphalt, tempered by these hearts of desire

No matter how tight the grip or how you hold on
If the moment is seized, it's already gone
Like the crack of a Bullwhip with it's temporary sting
It was all over, 'fore we noticed anything.

When we're battered from side to side
Will we stay by my side?
And all is lost to the rising tide
Will you be standing by (my side)

Wandering through the valleys, old rivers of shale
Shoulder to shoulder, hammer tooth n' nail
We have all been wounded by that treacherous cross
By this boon I'm sober albeit a cost

25 years of progress measured one step at time
For a moment , lift my gaze and see your engines burning
I vow that if we lose our way, this contract signed in blood
I will not be deafened, made callous or blinded to your light

When we're battered from side to side
Will you stay by my side
Succumbing to the rising of the tide
Will you be standing by
When we're battered from side to side
Will we stay by my side?
And all is lost to the rising tide
Will you be standing by (my side)

about

The SlashDogs Johannesburg, South Africa

“The SlashDogs do things differently from other South African bands… they don’t give a F**K about conforming to the current `standard` rock feel that their competition is putting out. They went back to the roots of real `Rock And Roll`, learnt from it and began to play real rock and roll.” – rockpulse.co.uk ... more
