Black Angels, The - The Sniper Lyrics




It's quiet and loud
No one hears it but us
Some starving and proud,
No one chooses but us

You can hide up upstream,
We will trap and scalp you
Change the colour of your skin,
But sure as night we'll find you

Never meant to hurt no one,
Only meant to move myself
Yeah, I try and I try,
'til I'm red in the face

We decide what goes inside your head

You see yourself in me
How'd you do that? How'd you?
Beyond your towers wall,
He waits on the killing call
And he tries and he tries,
'til he's red in the face

We decide what goes inside your head

Black Angels, The The Sniper Comments
  1. Austin Robinson

    Nothing more terrifying than hearing "we decide what goes inside your head" and at worst that means you'll be shot in the head and at best you have a bad trip or something lol.

  2. November

    Bad ass

  3. Steven Zhukov

    This song def is gonna be part of the big igloo soundtrack 2020

  4. Laroosa Dalabarge

    Should have been in Spec Ops The Line

  5. John Reuter

    It's quiet and loud
    No one hears it but us
    Some starving and proud,
    No one chooses but us

    You can hide up upstream,
    We will trap and scalp you
    Change the color of your skin,
    But sure as night we'll find you

    Never meant to hurt no one,
    Only meant to move myself
    Yeah, I try and I try,
    'til I'm red in the face

    We decide what goes inside your head

    You see yourself in me
    How'd you do that? How'd you?
    Beyond your towers wall,
    He waits on the killing call
    And he tries and he tries,
    'til he's red in the face

    We decide what goes inside your head

    Данила Волков

    Ды а что тут общаться, просто красавцы, одна из.лучших групп на данный момент в мировом роке. Конкретно эта песня очень напоминает мне Цеппелинов, которых я очень сильно люблю

  7. JZZY HIGHman

    DAYumm!! I forgot this one, I heard it Friday the day after Thanksgiving
    at The Golden Goose Bar in Austin Texas. 👊☀🍻🍷🍸🎶🔊

  18. Gabe Pineda

    They sound like a modern Jefferson airplane

  19. Cheese Block

    this should have been in spec ops the line

  20. The Final Door

    The lyrics are so haunting.. and mysterious.. its great

    Sleeve Ho

    Not much mystery. Most of their songs are about vietnam

  21. Beth Morgan Valvo

    Someone said they sound like Link Wray. I totally hear the surf sound too but they took it and made it dark which is so sexy and fantastic. 😍🙌🏻

  22. !eXplore!

    awesome sound

  23. Adam Rowell

    EXCACTLY

  24. Mahoxx One

    mein Lieblings Lied von den Black Angels

  25. Suspect on foot[FIN]

    Checked the lyrics and I'm disappointed as I always heard: "Never meant to hurt no one, only meant to be myself. Yeah, I try and I try, tell 'em right in the face!

    Pedro Ribeiro

    +Suspect on foot[FIN] well, the first part can be seen as the same, I think. The way I see it, "only meant to move myself" can easily be seen as "only meant to be myself"

    Beth Morgan Valvo

    Nothing disappoints me about this band.

  26. regg2943

    Thanks for this!!!!

  30. Yimra

    I just see the most laid back sniper ever, like he is just sitting on a ridge drinking a coffee and anytime he sees a target just scrambles for the rifle,and of course playing the music in the background because he loves his job and felt it was appropriate.  

    Rowan smith

    This sniper isn't gonna live very long 😅

    Austin Robinson

    Best comment ever.

  31. mistermyers777

    This reminds me of The Gun Club!

  32. marioandluigii22

  33. Wred Ginger

    saw them a few nights ago. well these guys were a full on fucking religious experience.I swear. they opened with this song (with an extended intro). and when they first started there were smoke machines, and dark blue and bright lights flooding the stage.they came on, and all you could see were the bands silhouettes.they played some eerie intro stuff, and then Alex(the singer)silhouette was seen walking up to the mic.then his silhouette hunched over and sang.(iconic stance)they are fucking gods.

    Mr.E 93tilinfinity

    Wred Ginger I saw them back in 2010 and they blew my mind as well!

  34. batmap115

    @riley

  40. darkktur o

    4 bitchez have no musical taste

  41. thinlizzy44

    Good reference, not sure I agree, but good reference. More like LA in 1965...."...so you'll never hear surf music....agin......"

  42. Sleeping Duck

    Or Baggy Trousers haha.

  43. BO7H B4RRELS

    Just started listening to The Black Angels tonight. There's no going back...

  44. Maxtaxifromhell

  51. musstakrakish

    Reminds me of Pulp Fiction a lot o.0

  52. machineimmafan

    Anyone see my sniper rifle? It's green and i think someone just shot it.

  53. Mac Jacobite

    Go and see him live and then you,ll understand mate

  54. Kyle Bugg

    I didn't say I disliked him, I just am not a fan of him unless he's in Queens

  55. Mac Jacobite

    WHAT!!!Wash out your mouth blasphemer!!QOTSA are great thats true but remember that Mark Lanegan has done a rather good job in complementing that band on many occasions.I regard Songs for the Deaf as their finest hour and Lanegan is on 5 of the tracks.

  56. Kyle Bugg

    really, Mark Lanegan? I consider Queens of the Stone Age above him

  57. Mac Jacobite

    Possibly their greatest song yet.May they continue this wonderful music alongside BRMC,The Black Keys,Duke Spirit and God i.e. Mark Lanegan

  58. machineimmafan

    no, he IS the sniper...

  59. Red Hot Chili Peppers man

    just found out abt these guys today.. and now i cant stop listening!! my fav part is after 1:20

  82. jcartergohl

    Super cool song.

  83. Victor Martinez

    All the dreams are the same.
    Square shades of grey.
    Melancholy waves fight for air.
    Surrender to the beast says the bird with two heads.

    Do not forgive the splendor.
    Live in greed...a black darker than night.
    Time to make amends to glory.
    Failure.

    Willfully walk without sight.
    Close your ears and let the mind listen.
    Sense the presence.
    Live without life.

    End.

  84. Steve F

    Great song.
