IDLES - Slow Savage Lyrics




It was dark and cold as a knife when we tussled through the pines
You can howl at the bed sheets
Scream at the moon if you like
But it won't help me some, won't help me if we die
But it might help me some, might help me if you cry
She said, "Wait! We'll be better if we wait, better if we wait"
I said, "There's no amount of time to carry the weight"

La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai
La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai

'Cause I'm the worst lover you've ever had
I'm the worst lover you'll ever have

For two years in a row I forgot your birthday
For two years in a row I thought it was a Thursday

Maybe it was God
Maybe it was coke
Maybe I'm a drunk
I don't know
But at least now I remember your birthday

'Cause I'm the worst lover you'll ever have
Hands down, goddamn worst lover you'll ever have

La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai
La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai

'Cause I'm the worst lover you'll ever have
I'm the worst lover you'll ever have

    Spectacular. First time hearing this.. I was listening to an interview on Jonesy Jukebox and the Idles were mentioned, that's how I found my way here.

    I had depressions... was totally on drugs.. cold winter morning... play brutalism for first time, after 3 songs i fell asleep but this beautiful song wake me up.. and i fell in love with Idles... this song remind me of mad world, beautiful world by ratm or hold on by limp bizkit... such a extraordinary type of music for these days

  13. J.d. Garza

    I’ve barely discovered Idles and have been shuffling through their music over the past couple of weeks. On my drive home (15 min ago), this song came on and hit me.

    How a band/person can so effectively grab hold of my attention and emotion is beyond me. This band is INCREDIBLE!

  14. Green Man

    Any other songs kinda like this?

    nordsman

    [Verse 1]
    It was dark and cold as a knife when we tussled through the pines
    You can howl at the bed sheets
    Scream at the moon if you like
    But it won’t help me some, won’t help me if we die
    But it might help me some, might help me if you cry
    She said, “Wait! We’ll be better if we wait, better if we wait”
    I said, “There’s no amount of time to carry the weight”

    [Chorus]
    La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai
    La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai

    'Cause I’m the worst lover you’ve ever had
    I’m the worst lover you’ll ever have

    [Verse 2]
    For two years in a row I forgot your birthday
    For two years in a row I thought it was a Thursday

    Maybe it was God
    Maybe it was coke
    Maybe I’m a drunk
    I don’t know
    But at least now I remember your birthday
    [Chorus]
    'Cause I’m the worst lover you’ll ever have
    Hands down, goddamn worst lover you’ll ever have

    La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai
    La da dai, la da dai, la da dai, la da dai

    'Cause I’m the worst lover you’ll ever have
    I’m the worst lover you’ll ever have

    Andrew Smith

    You are one of the good uns, cheers

  17. nightmuffin937

    Why does background sound alot like the beginning part of red Dead redemption

    JOEX TV

    I totally was thinking about this song played after arthur dies... it would be hell of depression

  18. Lynne RottenParkRoad

    It is absolutely gorgeous and one you can listen to repeatedly. There's just one line that grates me- "for two years in a row I thought it was a Thursday". I almost forgive them because he sings so brilliantly and meaningfully, but if they could just take that line out and replace with a repetition of "for two years in a row I forgot your birthday" for when we see them live I'd be dead happy, I would!

    arbear

    why does that grate you

    mastersoftoday

    @arbear i'd think because a date (the birthday) can't fall on the same day of the week two years in a row but for me it adds to how fucked up and illogical his mental state is in the song, which works

  19. Sam Brownjohn

    Best Idles song xoxoxoxox

    Randolph Lautsch

    Check out "June"!

    BRUTALIST

    Randolph Lautsch I prefer this to June although June carries more emotional weight I prefer this song.

    Sam Brownjohn

    I like June but this still clinches it for me.

  20. Ftanftangfnarrr

    The best song I’ve heard for years. Music lives!

  21. DAVID WHITTAKER

    Honest goodness and beauty. Only the best men learn 👌

  22. Rui Garrido

    Probably the best 2017 record and probably the best singer... Joe Talbot sings like if the end of the world is about to happen in a couple of minutes. I'm stoked on "Brutalism" and dying for "Joy as an Act of Resistance"

  23. Randolph Lautsch

    Brilliant!!!

  24. The Rainmaker

    I wish i could erase this album from my memory so i can experience it again

    Torquil

    Only just now ripped through the album - was insane experience blasting out loud, next up DT 770 Headphones!

  25. karin holt

    I can’t get over this

  26. Christ Ian

    Damn this his too close to home

  27. Kaitlin Stopyra

    intro reminds me a bit of Sweet like Honey

    JOEX TV
