Queens Of The Stone Age - River In The Road Lyrics




Fast approaching monsters,
Marching in a row,
Grab what slips your mind,
And what your memory won't hold.
Run, darling run.
I'll stall them if I can,
You'll escape and I'll be left rotting on the vine.

Run, darling Run.
I'll stall them if I can,
You'll escape and I'll be left rotting on the vine.

Avert the childrens eyes,
Forget left untold,
Don't look back to see,
The blood,
River in the road.

Get sweet revenge with my blood,
River in the road

Queens Of The Stone Age River In The Road Comments
  1. Queens Queens

    This whole record is a drug itself and I like to overdose on this all the time

  2. Gorey just Gorey what do you want, my adress?

    They say this albums the worst but I have to disagree, all of their albums are absolutely fantastic.

  3. The Rainmaker

    I would pay legit money to see the band IDLES cover this song

  4. Dante Nephi Vergil

    All of qotsa reminds me of my best mate that's why I love them.

  5. Black Privilege Exists

    Some people want to die.

  6. Fellipe Jair

    Música foda!

  7. Mike Watkinson

    Listen to this song on a lot of acid.

    breath888

    But I already feel like I am

    Mike Watkinson

    breath888 dawg you haven't lived until you've seen the hi-hats on this track with your ears.

    @Mike Watkinson I understand...AfterLife...Damn

  8. Kein Claus

    Fast approaching monsters marching in a row
    Grab what slips your mind and what your memory won't hold
    Run, darling, run
    I'll stall them if I can
    You'll escape, and I'll be left rotting on the vine
    Run, darling, run
    I'll stall if I can
    You'll escape, and I'll be left rotting on the vine
    Avert the children's eyes
    Forgets left untold
    Don't look back to see
    The blood river in the road
    Get sweet revenge with my blood river in the road

  9. redjakOfficial

    Should have been the walking dead opening song

  10. Brian

    No matter how hard i search, i can't find a song like this. I can't find one that makes me feel the same way. I don't even know how this makes me feel. I just know i love it and want more songs like it.

    Elizabeth Trejo

    Try Pornography by The Cure

  11. Leboyo56

    I believe this song is about a Jewish and Nazi couple during WWII. That sounds ridiculous, but here me through. "Fast approaching monsters, marching in a row" sounds like a reference to German Nazi goosestep marching. "Run, darling, run, I'll stall if I can" is the Nazi lover buying time using his identity to fool the oncoming soldiers. "You'll escape and I'll be left rotting on the vine" could be referencing him being gassed in a shower chamber. Etc. Etc. This is all implication. But this is my favorite song off this album, wanted to interpret it as best as I could.

    Oregons

    what gassed shower chamber?

    Talska

    Don't you hate it when you try and go to a vineyard to taste some expensive wine but end up in Dachau.

    duhlike

    I think it might be too.. but then again it might just be about toothpaste.. and then we’d be like..”awww mannnn”

  12. nike warner

    love the front cover of this one...and the cover to like clockwork. forgot the bulbs name....i remember reading thru the cd and having a name for them

    Rabbit0

    Ditto. Bulby's on the right.

  13. Mathias Oztraduction

    Have you heard this... with headphones!? :D

  14. deadstar44

    It's pretty hilarious now when Josh Homme says things regarding Villains like "We're a rock band but now we want to make danceable tunes blahblah" like it's a first for QOTSA. Well, either Baby Duck has short memory or something because River In The Road is fuckin' danceable if you ask me (I mean Castillo's beat is straight up west indies carribean rythm like dancehall) and better than both tunes they premiered so far.

    Peter Adams

    love the Baby Duck callback

    Alex 5432

    Mr. Lucky has a short memory indeed...

  15. Taylor Perkins

    One of QotSAs criminally underrated songs

    Intoxicated Daze

    my favorite 😁

  16. Alex 5432

    Fast approaching monsters, marching in a row
    Grab what slips your mind, and what your memories won't hold
    Run Darling run... I'll stall them if I can
    You'll scape and I'll be left, rotting on the vine...

    Run Darling run... I'll stall them if I can
    You'll escape and I'll be left, rotting on the vine...
    Avert the childrens eyes, forget, left untold
    Don't look back to see the blood, river in the road

    Get sweet revenge with my blood... river in the road.

  17. Benji Banks

    Great song.

  18. billyblackburn87

    i think this album sounds better than songs for the deaf

    Coltallic

    A lot of people rate this as their worst album, but honestly I'd rate it higher than their first two albums. I'd rank their albums like this:

    1.) ...Like Clockwork
    2.) Songs for the Deaf
    3.) Lullabies to Paralyze
    4.) Era Vulgaris
    5.) Rated R
    6.) Villains (still gotta listen to it more)
    7.) Self-Titled

    ASENBAISEN

    It's my second favorite, just behind ...Like Clockwork.

    Ants In My Pants

    this album is my favorite. its got this sound thats so different to everything else they've put out...

  19. Adriano Pires de Carvalho

    Very underrated song. This "blurry" riff is totally awesome. Those who dislike this song, they should pay attention to that riff.

    Ricardo Urquiza

    at last somebody noticed it, fuckin rulez

    king catnip

    yeah its epic , one of the best songs on the album, its so Erie and haunting , i love it

    Matthew Mulhern

    Queens of the stoneage u complete me

    Rabbit0

    I agree. Finally people who also agree.

    Laura Johnson

    This riff and beat is very delta blues amp'd up and bent. Touch of jazz and fluff. What he hears is amazing glad we get to experience it.

  20. YoMMaMa88

    its ok i have a amfibus

  21. bogoio

    @SwoozyCool oh, this song is awesome but Josh is so good he made even better ones

  22. bogoio

  27. RushAnthem69

    Run darling run, Ill stall them if I can, you'll escape and ill be left. Rotting on the vine.

  28. Robert Thorpe

    This song should be bigger

  29. Thijs Brouwer

    Not Overwatch

    Your best friend was a pirate?

  31. RushAnthem69

    You'll escape and ill be left.... rotting on the vine.

  32. RushAnthem69

    @Necromonger27 Indeed they are darker than usual, Into the Hollow is rather sad too.

  33. Necromonger27
