Machine Head - Be Still And Know Lyrics




In this struggle
Are we dead or alive?
Freedom is not existence
It's why we survive
Shake our grief
Hold on to belief
It can't enslave us forever
There is relief

No change will be permanent
Our strength enduring Bright incandescent
Take a chance before we fall
Backs against the wall

And the sun will rise
Dawn will break through the blackest night
Distant in its glow
This shall pass be still and know

And there's heartache
As we search to connect
Even just for a moment
Pretend We're content
There is love
Know that we are one
We are all in this together
Weather the storm

Look into each other's eyes
Make the connection before it dies
It will all disseminate
As we consummate

And the sun will rise
Dawn will break through the blackest night
Distant in its glow
This shall pass be still and know

Is it hopeless?
Will the fear take control?
Don't succumb to the numbing
Sting of defeat
Take this hate
Let the bile stagnate
Hoist the head of Goliath
Bask in its grace

Stars realign in the sky
Glaciers will melt and the oceans rise
Waves will come crashing ashore
But withstand the roar

And the sun will rise
Dawn will break through the blackest night
Distant in its glow
This shall pass be still and know

  14. BNP Zarie

    wtf is sleeping dogs

    Omega ZX

    A videogame

    depressed potato

    Gta on Hong Kong. U are a undercover cop in it. And your character knows kung fu moves

  15. jordan hart

    Always thought the intro sounded like Thunderstruck by AcDc

    EgocentricHead

    It's written in a completely different key. The only similarity is the technique used - hammer-ons and pull-offs. Which was used before AC/DC.

  16. CometTamer

    Who knew you could enjoy Machine Head even more when kicking ass with karate moves? Love Sleeping Dogs and really hope for a proper sequel.

    Omega ZX

    Have you played any Yakuza game?

  17. Harris Farley

    Anybody know any other songs with sound similar to the opening riff? I'm in love with it.

    lucas704taka

    Harris Farley Thunderstruck is almost the same intro haha

    Harris Farley

    lucas704taka that's true, I didn't think of that, but I love thunderstruck haha

    Omega ZX

    The Stage by Avenged Sevenfold has a similar opening riff

    Dabbin Unicorn

    Yeah, Fireflight-Unbreakable
    I'm surprised no one mentioned it

    Dabbin Unicorn

    @Harris Farley https://youtu.be/pWRJAHaOrYg similar intro,song equally good

  18. Filip Felix

    I got crazy as hell cause of this song. Man I wish I can destroy everything now

  19. Herr Bert

    Heard this song the first time when the album released.
    It's new for me, that Sleeping Dogs-OST-Thing^^ :D
    But yeah, definitely one of their best hymns! \m/

  20. Norbert Geller

    This music is AWESOME!!!!
    I so like it

  21. Just Passing Through

    Grateful to Sleeping Dogs for.being such an awesome fun game, and introducing me to this amazing band!

  22. Adnan

    I heard this song before playing Sleeping Dogs as I am a big fan of this band. Lost my shit when I heard this while driving in that game and then ran over everyone and everything that came in front.

  23. oN Zuwg

    Interitum gang where you @

    pxrk .

    oN Zuwg Raw Interitum

  24. Marcin Surowiec

  25. Benji Bunny

    Not even this could make Sleeping Dogs interesting... Oh well, kudos to these guys for the sweet music!

    Gabriel Jimenez

    Ben Coole sleeping dogs was great wtf

  26. Royalsteven

    I always like the fact that Machine Head puts Bible verses in their songs. So atheists will sing Bible texts unwillingly :)

    Royalsteven

    @Ric Schmeelk
    No, he cursed them in the name of God. A human deed.

    Ric Schmeelk

    +Royalsteven
    I should have expected the old, "that's not what it _really_ says," or "you're taking it out of context," type of line. It's disingenuous and doesn't solve the problem of how as I said above, as the creator of all things, he's ultimately responsible for evil. If you claim he is somehow not responsible, then you need to square that with the claim of him being omnipotent and omni-benevolent. You're then treading in deep water, risking contradiction and inconsistency.

    Or if you like, you're then forced to defend his morality, which is obviously lacking. An omniscient deity who creates beings, knowing they will go against his will and punishing them anyway isn't exactly the height of morality.

    Ric Schmeelk

    +Royalsteven
    From your Isaiah link:
    "... God brings disaster on those who continue in hard-hearted rebellion against Him."
    Why are the creations of a supposedly perfect being even _able_ to rebel against him? Makes him sound like a pretty lousy inventor. So he "intelligently designs" us, and being omniscient, he _knows_ some will rebel against him, and then he punishes those for acting according to the way he made them. Sorry, but it sounds to me like a real dick move on his part.

    Ric Schmeelk

    +Royalsteven
    "Why else do most people convert through the Bbile?"
    First, I'm not convinced they do. Secondly, how they convert to Christianity is irrelevant because they're being sold a bundle of lies and false promises, spread along with some guilt and self-loathing.

    "I think you should listen to what God has to say, or read the gospels and see if you agree."
    I _have_ actually read the Gospels. As I believe I've said above, at best, they're inconsistent with each other, and at worst they're contradictory stories with each later one adding embellishments from the original story, the one attributed to Mark (the others borrowed heavily from him, except for John, which is altogether different). It's also fairly widely accepted that even Mark was added on to some time later, as Mark 16:9-20 do not appear in the earliest discovered texts. Each has significantly differing stories of the resurrection, leading one to believe it never happened at all.

    Regardless of the NT issues, it is my contention that since Genesis is entirely allegory, the whole basis for one of Christianity's main points, the idea of original sin and the need for salvation, is completely bunk, and so as the foundation crumbles, so does the whole structure of the religion.

    jadedzy fam

    This convo is amazing cause Robb is very against religion so whenever he says bible verses it's to take the piss out of religion

    The drummer in this is Amazing!

    Jason Metz

    +TheRooster 727 I saw them live when they toured with Metallica. His drumset was insane. so many drums. But yeah is a badass drummer for sure.

    Zeke Iddon

    +TheRooster 727 Dave McClain my friend, one of the most underrated drummers not just in metal but of any genre.

  44. Donar0208

    the snowdawg

    @Cyruss NP Oh, hippity hoppity u say?

    themaniacboy

    @Anthony Price Thanks to that game i do like them now. When i first listened to them i didn't really like them. These songs made me like this band.

    Pedro J Silva

    I have to say... Unto the locust is for me the best metal album ever.....

    Zeke Iddon

    +Pedro J Silva It's right up there, but for me it's still second to The Blackening. Essentially, Locust is just more of the same though and that's absolutely fine in my book.

    Optimistic Human
