Massive Attack - Atlas Air Lyrics




Yes, shall we take a spin again in business?
This time is fixed, let's sweeten our facilities
It took all the man in me
To be the dog you wanted me to be

Shall we take a spin again, no witnesses?
This time is fixed seven three seven is
You won't feel a thing
Begging until you give it up insane

Fish like little silver knives
Make the cuts on my inside
Yeah, let him feast my heart is big, my heart is big
My blood will slide in metal studs

Tourniquet will hold its groove
Tourniquet will keep its grip
It took all the man in me
To be the dog you wanted me to be

Yeah, let him feast my heart is big
My heart is big, my blood will slide
You let him feast my heart is big
My heart is big, my blood will slide

Got nothing to lose but my chains
Internet feeds on my brains
Head in the sand, feet in the clay
And time is still like grease it slips
Sucking in, spitting pips, yeah, spitting pips

Nothing to lose but my chains
Internet beats on my brains
Head in the sand, feet in the clay
A place to piece, a place to pray

A little money should get me on my feet
This gun of smoke is slaying me
And time is still like grease it slips
Sucking in, spitting pips, yeah, spitting pips

My heart was big and like my pride
Let them feast on my insides
And when the filled had spilled its guts
Gently open then it shuts

I'm in the hole three thousand days
A buried soul
They live the dream in terminal
No war too mean

I know the drill, got cells to burn, I'm dressed to kill
A mortal coil and time is still on secret soil
Yeah, pay the bills, cells to burn, mouths to fill
On Boeing jets in the sunset make glowing threats

  11. Henrique Ramos

    The Massive Attack were, and still are, one of the best electronic music groups. At the sound of them they can call whatever they want. Trip hop or Sound of Bristol. Does not matter! They are unique! All their albums are excellent masterpieces of pop music and world rock. I have the privilege of having five of their albums in my CD collection. Blue Lines from 1991, remastered in 2012, Protection from 1994, Mezzanine from 1998, 100th Window of 2003, and Heligoland of 2010. Great works of contemporary Anglo-Saxon music. Congratulations on your talent, the artists invited to each album! Thank you for your excellent music throughout these years, from my youth to adulthood! I still listen to Good music! Although not the same as in the past because your musical style has gone out of style, you are still brilliant and your music is timeless!

    Is the title talking about the actual airline, Atlas Air?

    Apple Snapple

    Yes. Credit to MassiveAttack.ie:

    "The name of the track, comes from an American passenger airline called Atlas Air. In 2006, Amnesty International released a report on extraordinary rendition which found that the airline Atlas Air was alleged to have be used by the US government for rendering detainees for torture or further detention."

  76. JakeMondNaver424

    OMG Whatasong ! :D

  77. Rui Lobato

    ... ok, you may say I'm an old fart, because I remember the jefferson airplane's "white rabbit" at woodstock back in 69.
    the "surrealistic pillow" I lay my head on everynight, brought me here, to this other white rabbit.
    " and if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall, call alice, when she was just small...one pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small, and the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all, go ask alice when she's 10 feet tall... remember what the doormouse said, feed your head, feed your head."
    since "blue lines" I'm a fan of massive attack, but I never saw this video... not a bit of the rabbit.
    cheers to massive attack's music.

    Jesse Dominguez

    what are those lyrics from? but damn man your description and me tripping out right now ...wow

    Jesse Dominguez

    acid 16 17 is upon us though

    Samantha S

    @Jesse Dominguez - the lyrics are from the aforementioned song "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplaine.  It's a great song, look it up on here. But don't expect it to sound anything like this.... ;-)

    Steven Tuck

    @Jesse Dominguez Ahhh, White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane.

  78. TheJazz747

    Who sings in this song? is it Robert Del Naja?

    Karmacoma

    +TheJazz747 Yes

  79. Jobran Nasr

    I really love this middle-eastern musical element that is appearing sometimes in the song. Massive, you guys never fail to impress.

    Afitap Cbr

    Jobran Nasr the instrument that used in this song which belongs to Anatolia is called "darbuka" i think

    Hatem Mohammed

    it's an arabic rhythm called "Hijaz" most of the arab folk music based on this rhythm. and the percussion instrument is called "derbakkah" , it exists in nearly every middle eastern house.
    from syria🤘🏻

  80. Andrea Sollai

    The best song in Heligoland

    Evan Esqueda

    personally i enjoy babel a little more but it is a really solid song

    Also Yes

    +spiritvoice108 Most people know what the 'L' in 'LMFAO' stands for. The added 'ing' makes it more confusing if anything. Just saying.

    Feather Black
