Massive Attack - Small Time Shot Away Lyrics




Took her in
Dropped a line
Turned me on
(I travel I travel)
We never leave each other 'cause we leave each other so cold
Makes it melt away

The easy part is taking yourself in
It's wartime every time
Shot away

Wipe the smile from your face
It's getting in the way
It's wartime every time
She cut me a line and she turned me on
She made it cool
You couldn't do it if you wanted to
(Believe me believe me)

It's wartime every time
Small talk every time
It's my favourite chloroform
It's pill talk every time
Get it out the way
Friction wound
Shot away

Ricochet
We're like identical twins
Sucking on the same teat
Spitting out the same things
(I travel far, I travel far)
It's wartime every time
Small talk every time
It's my favourite chloroform
It's pillow talk every time
Get it out the way
Friction wound
Ricochet

Line'em up and knock'em down
Shot away
A shot away
A shot away
A shot away

    Daddy G. Also made the album? I though is only Robert and Neil.

  9. Kyrus Larocque

    Bite the bullet, bite bite the bullet

  10. BaronVonPenguin

    I remember this and George Michael’s Patience came out around the same time. Two undiscovered masterpieces

  11. Machen Savira

    wipe the smile from your face... its getting in the way...

  12. c h l o r i n e

    Gorillaz..
    2D...

  13. krkons

    that was the last good album from MA, unfortunately.

    bobs and vagene

    krkons what the hell are you on about, Heligoland is their second best album after Mezzanine.

    Cristina Pereira

    @bobs and vagene I think after mezzanine is this album made by 3D and Neil. He, Robert, wanted to change a bit about the sound of mezzanine and I think he did a very good job. He is a genius in fact.

  14. Karmacoma

    this song is the audio version of feeling suicidal

  15. TReXcuRRy

    Last night I walked home from a friend's party, still pretty high, middle of the night. It was snowing massive, slowly falling snowflakes. The streets completely empty. My head tucked in the hood and my mind tripping, I put on my earphones and Spotify played me this.
    I seriously thought I was entering another dimension.

  16. DIERAPPER

    100th Window BEST TRACK no doubt

  17. Elba Ponce

    Lo estoy escuchando. saludos

  18. idunno ufuckinthot

    in 8D it would sound so awesome

  19. Matrix Master

    The Stoning: youtu.be/III2SNwceTQ

  20. hélène wendel

    C'est une splendeur

  21. Aleksey Nesterov

    Mой любимый альбом ,ну и песня конэчно

  22. Spice 1

    Such a numbed out, jaded masterpiece. When I went through a divorce this song I played over and over. It felt like the song bottomed out right with me. One of those songs that as soon as it hits your ear it takes you right into a dark hypnotic state.

  23. Miguel Leiva

    Music to get so high...

  24. Luciana Moletta

    ultimate cocaine song.

  25. web e-dog corporate media animal

    song in 5D

  26. Chloe Barrera

    I heard this song in csi the Vegas.

  27. Zsozso Nagy

    Thank You!!!!!!!!

  28. DoctorNuriel

    Something about this track feels Boards of Canadaish to me... but I can't put my finger on what.

  29. masterhuhwhat

    a great driving in the car singing along to song

  30. hihtitmamnan

    If aliens came to earth and asked me what is music I would show them THIS.

    masterhuhwhat

    wow yeah great question and great answer or acid effiel

  31. Alice

    What is this song about?

    dražen mesarić

    I think it has something to do with domestic violence...

    Alif Yusuf Vasquez

    Doing drugs with someone you hold dear
    “Cut me a line..” should have given it away

    Small time shot away is about injection

  32. Alexa Shelby

    This entire album was so underrated. I love this song... It's strangely soothing. I always paint to it.

    Sean Green

    not by me, the whole album is so dark.

    Karmacoma

    I paint to Mezzanine as well as this. It really helps capture a desolate, melancholic feeling

    Ciorchinele Suprem

    I wanna see your paintings are you still alive?

    Soroush r

    I always flip between this or splitting the atom as my favorite! I can never decide!

    CHARLIE DELTA

    Ciorchinele Suprem., Come on , give her some space, we all have different styles, and if all of these ones doesn’t hurt us. Then is all good. We all are just humans.

  33. Vax x

    Great song to drive to :)

  34. Benjamin Bergstrom

    Excellent song! Sweet, soft and refreshing melodies ...

  35. J Francis

    A while ago I deleted my long standing Massive Attack channel on Pandora Radio due to the same old, unwantedly random and unrelated songs, sneaking their way onto the channel.
    Yesterday I remembered the tune to this song, and today I find myself here.
    I want to find more songs like this, and then not suddenly have to hear "Susudio" afterward.

    John Dorcic

    Pandora is horrible because of that. You like the wrong song and your Blur channel plays Rush nonstop for a week.

    Jack K

    Joseph Francis Check out portishead.

    Marcilla Smith

    When I got to the "susudio" in your comment, I became instantly angry

  36. Nophera

    I have such a boner for this song.

  37. Trevor P

    : )   "Wipe the smile, from your face.... it's getting in the way..."    : \    : (

  38. Hunter Funk

    this song came on while i was on a bike ride today & took me completely by surprise and i biked around for eight more minutes just to hear it all

    Shane Hutton

    glad to hear that someone likes this song as much as i do. im not going to go into the reasons why this song is so special to me, but its definitely my favorite off the album and deserves more recognition than it does

    Tad Var

    What about 3 hours... in a forest.. at night...

    Nox

    The song is only 6 minutes 37 seconds long.. Why would you lie to me? :(

  39. Hazem Mizyed

    first there is a circle then i see two circles  shaping infinity......then the number of circles becomes infinity !

  40. Unwashed Flyer

    did he steal a beat from norman cooks computer or some shit? norman cook is or was fatboy slim by the way.

  41. Unwashed Flyer

    robert del naja made most of this album, without that somalian dude.

  42. Isaías Sosa

    My life needs more Massive Attack.

  43. Even457

    i like this hue on the picture

  44. percival132

    Massive Attack is legendary, and this is my favorite song by them. Maybe my favorite song by anyone??? Very good!

  45. pensfan870

    This song makes me feel loved.

  46. 4drenocrom0

    Modesta saci like this song ;D

  47. Camila Aguirre

    this sounds a bit like desired constellation by bjork

  48. Wolfram Emperor

    I like Black Milk, Group 4, Sly, Name Taken, Three and Inertia Creeps the most.

  49. NinjaFister

    God damn right nobody dislikes this

  50. Ritta Gn

    Misfits

  51. Clint Ballagh

    attention all earthilngs: This song sounds awesome from Dallas, TX. Is it as awesome where you are?

  52. joesin1994

    Yeah 2D is there just at a really low volume and hes not using his signature falsetto.
    3D and 2D together = EPIC

  53. ajshell2

    According to Gorillaz Unofficial, if you listen closely, you can hear 2D doing the backing vocals.

  54. Jim Johnston

    this whole album is just amazing, it made a big impression on me growing up. i could say i wish 3d would make another album like this but what would be the point? massive attack always evolve and explore new sounds, always with passion and intelligence. i just prefer this dark psychonaut phase :)

  55. SporadicTroll

    lol what?

  56. Chris Sparzo

    halo 4!

  57. blottoinchcago

    i have turned about 20 people on to this song..all have said that next to Teardrop, is not only one of Massive Attack's best songs, but top ten they have ever heard...

  58. NubNubs

    Damn this really is an amazing song i keep sayin “ shot it away“ which is great
