Helmet - Tic Lyrics




The tic begins where's the manner end?
The climate change will never get in
Silent and strong and prepossessed
You never need to make you own mess

Weasel to me is charming to some
Loathsome and glib
Habits like self-love
Wearing slim fast you carve your niche
Lean smug back and work your pitch

And all the way I'm gone, no
Demon race to find
You paint if up and know that
Any face can lie
Affect my greatest style, what
Suits me best of all
Keep my pocket filled, lean right and
Fall

    Lyrics

    The tic begins, 
    Where's the manned end?
    The climate change 
    Will never get in
    Silent and strong, 
    Prepossessed
    You never need to 
    Make your own mess

    Weasel to me, 
    Charming to some
    Loathsome and glib, 
    Habits like self love
    Wearing slim fast, 
    You carve your niche
    Lean smug back and 
    Work your pitch

    And all the way 
    I'm gone
    No demon race 
    To find
    You paint it up 
    And know
    That any face 
    Could lie

    And all the way 
    I'm gone
    No demon race 
    To find
    You paint it up 
    And know
    That any face 
    Could lie

    Affect my greatest style
    What suits me best of all
    I keep my pocket filled
    Lean right and fall

    Weasel to me! Charming to some!

  6. william bua jr.

    Some might say "arguably", I say "without a doubt" the hardest hitting band ever, period.

  7. Ali İhsan Elmas

    The tic begins where's the manned end?
    The climate change will never get in
    Silent and strong and prepossessed
    You never need to make your own mess
    Weasel to me in charming to some
    Loathsome and glib
    Habits like self-love
    Wearing slim fast you carve your niche
    Lean smug back and work your pitch
    And all the way I'm gone, no
    Demon race to find
    You paint it up and know that
    Any face can lie
    Affect my greatest style, what
    Suits me best of all
    Keep my pocket filled, lean right and

  18. Cherie Champagne

    Also Deftones song minus blindfold is in standard tuning and no I'm not one of those anti-drop tuning people it's just a fun fact

  19. Cherie Champagne

    It goes to show you don't have to play complex riffs to be heavy... Sometimes simple is heavier IMO feel free to disagree

    Rebecca Broughton

    @Cherie Champagne you have a good point about the simple is heavy but the beauty of Helmet's heaviness is the spacing of their music. The space is the weight to Helmet.

    Jan Poelkamp

    Many of their riffs and grooves are quite complex, though.

    clemep

    @Jan Poelkamp Stanier definitely has some odd-time drum riffs...that guy was/is a genius drummer...

  20. Cancer Söze

    heavy as fuck

  21. Fernando D

    im here because helmet and hardcore shit

  22. Busy_Blues

    im here because of deftones..

  23. Guilherme Martinez

    Pancada na cabeça....chora não seusss zeiioiô.....sonzeira ....

  24. alan betts

    Didn't the deftones steal this chorus?

    Ironically Vague

    Which Deftones track?

    Troy Saunders

    for anyone still curious, the Deftones song "Korea" from their White Pony album incorporated the lines "carve your niche" and "work your pitch" into its chorus. i assume they meant for it to be a reference since members of the band have stated that they are Helmet fans, but it probably came across as thievery to most people.

    DrTomoculus

    @Troy Saunders Thanks Troy. Listening now.

    DrTomoculus

    @Troy Saunders 30 seconds in I know why I listened to Helmet, and not Deftones.

    Matty A

    Deftones and Helmet are tight as shit, so I'd say "stealing" would be an idiotic word to use. Fans are fucking hilarious with this shit.

  25. Lydie Flachselová

    I love sound of this band. And the singer - he sings and then the power of his voice from his whole HIM. Oh, the power of sound this band = I canť do nothing, I am only siting on my chair and I listen it and still listen and anything else. I love part : 0:35..., and then 1:14...

  26. S. P.

    This goes to prove that you don't fuck with Helmet 😄 This helmet has barbs on the inside,man 🤘🏻🤣🤘🏻

    @joey lafferty I think I heard unsung first on a VHS skate video sometime in the early 90's, I want to say it was a BPSW video (big pants, small wheels)... EDIT: yep, its here https://youtu.be/ArEL6hqC0Bg?t=230 --circa 1992

  38. SPQRTempus

  39. Miles Highson

    Wearing slim fast
    Carve your niche
    Lean smug, back
    WORK YOUR PITCH

    Beth Nolan

    This lyric brings to mind, the ruddy, bloated head of Donald Trump.

    Saul Green

    Deftones "Korea" lyrics says:

    "Night time, cavity, come in
    Downtown, pony, work your pitch
    Daytime, dancer, I'll come inside
    Got my, teacher, now and carve your niche"

    They are clearly fans of Helmet!

    sebas

    unoriginal band in every way (sound and lyrics).

    Gage Duvall

    Not for the time they were around loser

    Nick Bauman

    @sebas pretty original actually one of a kind.
