Otherwise - Close To The Gods Lyrics




Otherwise

Are you willing to do
What it takes to be truthful
Can you cut through the filth
And get down to the beautiful

Now I'm crawling on a face of stone
I'm trying hard to leave a mark
So reckless on a path unknown
Hoping to catch a spark

Getting close to the gods
And the devil is falling
Now there's no way to stop
No escape from the calling
So you don't fall behind
We're holding the line
Fighting for life as we climb
Close to the gods
All the temples are falling
Getting close to the gods

Feel the energy slip
Through your hands as you witness
All the steel turn to rust
We are sand we are ashes and dust

Now I'm crawling on a face of stone
I'm trying hard to leave a mark
So reckless on a path unknown
Hoping to catch a spark

Getting close to the gods
And the devil is falling
Now there's no way to stop
No escape from the calling
So you don't fall behind
We're holding the line
Fighting for life as we climb
Close to the gods
All the temples are falling
Getting close to the gods

Now I'm crawling on a face of stone
I'm trying hard to leave a mark
So reckless on a path unknown
Hoping to catch a spark

Getting close to the gods
And the devil is falling
Now there's no way to stop
No escape from the calling
So you don't fall behind
We're holding the line
Fighting for life as we climb
Close to the gods
All the temples are falling
Getting close to the gods
Close to the gods...

Otherwise Close To The Gods Comments
  1. Benjamin Yearley

    Pretty gay

  2. nick supreme

    Half of all alleged "hard rock" bands today -> "experiment" with electronica, trap beats, autotune, maybe a bit softer to "do something new", do a pure pop song because "fun to try out new things", do popcountry, do electropop, do whatever as long as you REMOVE GUITARS, cough cough shinedown skillet theory of a deadman etc...
    Otherwise -> Sounds as heavy as they've always done, without sounding stale, coming back with two pretty hard-hitting alternative metal tracks...

    Top comments on VERY generic attempts to rip off top 40 by these "hard rock" bands "experimenting" i.e. shinedown (state of my head) or theory of a deadman (new song) = "Who else isn't complaining or being triggered by them trying something different?"
    = "This just proves how shinedown has real talent and its just not a bunch of freaks screaming into a mic like some people think they do"

    Top comments on Otherwise's comeback = "Very generic. Nothing Special".

    *And then we wonder why rock is dying rapidly. Like the constant mislabeling of indiepop as "rock" wasn't enough!*
    This song _might_ be argued to be generic-ish (in the sense that there exists quite a few songs like it) but it's certainly NOTHING compared to the new pop songs by "rock" bands sounding just like bad top 40 pop, only less catchy...

    marko tuna

    Nice dissection, this is exactly what we see happening now with all the popular bands.. "experimenting" ends up into slow shift into pop and then people wonder why the most of their fans like the older stuff -.-

  3. Sour Pig

    whoa, sounds so good!!

  4. Zach Morrow

    Anyone think of TOAD while listening to this??

  5. Adnane Touzani

    This song is fucking awesome.
    Those who said generic go fuck yourselves

    LYRICS:
    Are you willing to do
    What is takes to be truthful
    Can you cut through the filth
    And get down to the beautiful

    (Pre Chorus)
    Now I'm crawling on a face of stone
    I'm trying hard to leave a mark
    So reckless on a path unknown
    hoping to catch a spark

    (Chorus)
    Getting close to the gods
    and the temple is falling
    now there's no way to stop
    no escape from the calling
    So you don't fall behind
    we're holding the light
    fighting for life as we climb
    Close to the gods
    all the temples are falling
    getting close to the gods

    Feel the energy slip
    Through your hands as you witness
    All the steel turn to rust
    We are set, we are ashes and dust

    (Pre Chorus)
    (Chorus)
    (Pre Chorus)
    (Chorus)

    CLOSE TO THE GODS!!!

  18. TheChizoephrayne

    Very generic. Nothing Special

    nick supreme

    At least Otherwise don't sell out like half the mainstream rock bands today

    Chevy Life

    TheChizoephrayne how is this generic??

    Hunter Stouffer

    This is amazing most music does not come close

    Mike Newdeck

    Why is it that if someone actually writes a good song with a hook and melody with a decent chorus people say it's generic? lazy

    Chevy Life

    Mike Newdeck because people dont know good music when they hear it.They don't have a open mind,narrow minded in the rut of music they "think" is good

  19. Tobin Frost

    quite awesome
