Motorhead - Night Side Lyrics




Horror stalks the dark night
Keeps the world from our sight
We can't see all of the silent ones coming
To take the ultimate bite
No lucky charm will suffice
To keep the monsters at bay
No clove of garlic or crucifix ever
Kept the vampires away

Nightside, nightside
Open wide, open wide
Nightside, hell-born
Nightside, devil-spawn

Darkness, in our poor eyes
Helps the night to disguise
The legions of crawling &
Hopping black horrors
Who come to aid our demise
No lucky charms ever help
To keep us safe while we sleep
No incantation or pentacle ever
Kept the strong from the weak

Nightside, nightside.
Open wide, open wide
Nightside, hell-born
Nightside, devil-spawn
Nightside, nightside.
Demons ride, demons ride
Nightside, ripped and torn
Nightside, devil-spawn

Terror, afraid of the dark.
Hear the devil dog bark.
You cannot hope you can
Ever outrun them
And their teeth are ever so sharp

No way to save your poor self
No way to keep you immune
No magic ever produced will assist you
To outlive the full of the moon

Nightside, nightside
Open wide, open wide
Nightside, hell-born
Nightside, devil-spawn
Nightside, open wide
Nightside, devil-spawn
Nightside, nightside

Motorhead Night Side Comments
  1. Metalhead Fan

    this track kicks ass

  2. StonedHeavy427

    Isso é rock'roll!

  3. Lord Hentai

    I disagree with it being a filler track; it's just a different sounding track compared to their other songs

  4. SlimChanse

    motorhead one dimensional??!!! They capture so many different moods/scene-like theatre, but always intense, real energy...as life should be...this song is a perfect example...nay sayers fuck off!!!

  5. Gio Gionist

    I think that the aftershock album is worse than this.

    colemann76

    Gio Gionist No way

  6. ZOOT CHANNEL

    SUPER MOTOR ...

  7. bgarr99

    It's a good filler song, not shit at all.

  8. Breaker Bill

    Lemmy + bass with flanger effect= Awesome!!!

  9. Thea Verner

    shake youre blood

  10. Maximus_Crotchrocket

    I think Eat the gun is more of Motorheads worst song instead of this

    Gio Gionist

    And listen to your heart, good to be true, but I think the aftershock album and much of the kiss of death, hammered, the world is yours too

  11. Jake H

    I actually really dig this song.

  12. Stygian

    Honestly besides the lyrics I haven't got a gripe with this song like Mikkey does, if anything assassin is worse imo. (please don't kill me fellow fans!)

  13. GrayWoIf

    it is kinda forgettable

  14. Lydia Kinghan

    LEMMY WILL LIVE FOREVER

  15. Lucas Mattheus

    2:06 to 2:14 is fuckin' awesome !!

  16. Alexis Velazquez

  17. asdfg wasd

    verse's great, solo's fine, chorus....not so much ahahaha
    still good, i really like the distortion and i don't care what lemmy and mikkey say about it

    Rusty Kuntz

    Quote from Mikkey Dee...."..we were stressed out of our minds when we did that album.  It turned out OK, but no more than OK.  We all know it; we should've had three more weeks on that and it would've been a great album. I blame it completely on the time we had.  For instance, we put on the worst song we ever had, which is "Night Side," it's the worst shit we've ever done, and we thought it was shit when we did it. We had no time to write another tune, we had nothing left...So we all feel the same about that album. I've heard people say, "That's the best album you've got" and I'm like "What planet are you from?.."  That's harsh, IDT its the worst song they ever did, far from the best either.

    Killer_Indigo

    Rusty Kuntz as much as I love songs about food😋, Eat the Rich is the worst song the ever did.

    Peter Begman

    @Killer_Indigo What planet are you from? Eat the rich is an 80's classic.

  18. Angelmagnicidio Cabrera

    WHAT A GOOD LIRICS: "KEEP THE WORLD FROM OUR SIGHT", "NO INCANTATION OR PENTACLE EVER KEPT THE STRONG FROM THE WEAK"

  19. Angelmagnicidio Cabrera

    WHAT? THIS SONG IS GREAT, THE LIRIC IS AWSOME, THE RITHM IS SO PUNK, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PEACE OF ROCKANDROLL, THIS IS RAW AND PURE, THIS AIN´T FUCKING FEAR FACTORY OR TECHNO METAL OR THAT BULLSHIT.

  20. Lemmy OfAOS

    i like the distortion

  21. Amy Lawrence

    Watched the Mikkey Dee interview... I think no Motorhead song is crap tbh. I see Lemmys and Mikkeys point though with this song... its not that great but not totally crap either

    cfmidenceh1

    Now I didn´t expec to to find you here xD
    Excellent job defending our heroes!

  22. keefriff99

    Just watched the Mikkey Dee interview where he said that both and Lemmy agree that this is the shittiest song they've ever written.

    This is my first time listening to it...I don't know, there's nothing wrong it. It's just a typical Motorhead filler song. Not great, but not awful either.
