Faith No More - Ricochet Lyrics




All of that thick time without you
Has made me so thick and drunk
"and it's okay to laugh about it"
I said, "it's okay to laugh about it"

Runnin' twice as fast to stay in the same place
Don't catch my breath until the end of the day
And I'd rather be shot in the face
Than hear what you're going to say

One day the wind will come up
And you'll come up empty again
- And who'll be laughing then ? -
You'll come up empty again

No reason - no explanation - so play the violins
It's always funny until someone gets hurt...
And then it's just hilarious !

You beat me every time you blink
If only I did not have to think
Think about you crackin' a smile
Think about you all the while

On the ricochet - it's going to hit you
It's always funny until someone gets hurt
You can laugh at me - when it misses you

Faith No More Ricochet Comments
  1. Sandy Mercer

    I feel like System Of A Down got some of their inspiration from Faith No More.

  2. OrenAi

    is this... ? "NO! WAIT 10 SECONDS IT'S NOT RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE!"

  3. na band e bom demais 2004

    Inbucus

  4. Robert Atkins

    This is wicked but does roddy bottum play guitar in other songs

  5. Arne Korpen

    Worst song off the album.

  6. J.R Duran

    is grunge

  7. Random Addendum

    i always hear it "and I'm so gay to to laugh about it"

  8. Forest Hill Mechanical Services

    Although Jim Martin is missed, getting Frank Zappa to come in to play in the videos was a good idea

    Nick Hill

    Yes that's true.

    Gonza Music

    Hahahaha

  9. Mariana A.

    Mike soooooooo cute

  10. Skunk

    Supposedly written the day kurt cobain killed himself. Patton said " its true, whatever that means."

  11. TheAnalPunisher

    Patton give me your moustache

  12. Skip Donaghue

    The fade out at the end is just as awkward as the band in this period.

  13. themadrapper101

    This sounds like Grunge and Nu Metal mashed together

  14. Daniel Moraes

    João e Maria cade meu menino???

  15. Tony Lowry

    Joveys in their Latest Cars?? No, thanks. Faith No More?? Definitely With Their Great Songs. 'Sol Invictus' (2015), Faith No More's LATEST Album Is Superb. It's Also Great, Their Live Show (Around 2016) On The BBC Live Radio And TV Was Brilliant. BRILLIANT BAND, BRILLIANT NAME!! MIKE PATTON IS THE BEST EVER VOCALIST, WITH HIS INCREDIBLE VOCAL RANGE. TRULY EPIC.

  16. tintoweno

  26. Terbie36

    Another FNM masterpiece with only 875.674 views. What kind of a world are we living in?

  27. Fabio Aguirre-Calero

    All of that thick time without you
    Has made me so thick and drunk
    And it's okay to laugh about it
    I said it's okay to laugh about it

    Running twice as fast to stay in the same place
    Don't catch my breath until the end of the day
    And I'd rather be shot in the face
    Than hear what you're going to say

    One day the wind will come up
    And you'll come up empty again
    And who'll be laughing then?
    You'll come up empty again
    There's no reason, no explanation
    So play the violins

  28. TheAnalPunisher

    3:20 --> Patton invented crabcore

    All of that thick time without you
    Has made me so thick and drunk
    "and it's okay to laugh about it"
    I said, "it's okay to laugh about it"

    Runnin' twice as fast to stay in the same place
    Don't catch my breath until the end of the day
    And I'd rather be shot in the face
    Than hear what you're going to say

    One day the wind will come up
    And you'll come up empty again
    - And who'll be laughing then ? -
    You'll come up empty again

    No reason - no explanation - so play the violins
    It's always funny until someone gets hurt...
    And then it's just hilarious !

    You beat me every time you blink
    If only I did not have to think
    Think about you crackin' a smile

    And you'll come up empty again
    And who'll be laughing then
    You'll come up empty again
    No reason no explanation so play the violins

    It's always funny until someone gets hurt
    And then it's just hilarious

    You beat me every time you blink
    If only I did not have to think
    Think about you crackin' a smile

  93. Douglas Zanden

    this is Faith, you have never heard or you soul never had the guts, to sit down and listen to masters, playing, just pure love to the art of art, i am so happy, i had the chance to live, and see and hang, with these people, cause greatness, is not born, it is made.....- and i will tell you, about %80 will not get it, cause, its a calling, not a good song, so i will put my name next to them, cause i do not love them i don't respect them, i adore them for what they stand for and do, if i was dying on my death bed i would only listen to faith no more, so simple, so right, i will not change the world, i will make.......
