Ride - Charm Assault Lyrics




Focused raw reptilian ambition
From the dark side where it's all a game
As the pieces move into position
Did you feel a flicker on your brain

Charm assault
Get out of my brain
You can leave but
The truth will always remain
Your charm assault
Has scarred the world
It looks so ugly
As your lies begin to unfurl

Acid sweating hunchback apparition
Privilege abused at every turn
Serious as a heart attack he's standing
He sets a fire to your world and lets it burn

Charm assault
Get out of my brain
You can leave but
The truth will always remain
Your charm assault
Has scarred the world
It looks so ugly
As your lies begin to unfurl

Charm assault
Get out of my brain
You can leave but
The truth will always remain
Your charm assault
Has scarred the world
It looks so ugly
As your lies begin to unfurl

Charm assault
Get out of my brain
You can leave but
The truth will always remain
Your charm assault
Has scarred the world
It looks so ugly
As your lies begin to unfurl

  1. The Lawnmower Ix. 091

    When I'm listening to this I'm back in middle school. The world's much more stable and music still looks very good and promising. Good stuff.🎤🎸🎵

  2. The Lawnmower Ix. 091

    Cool song and cool video. Back when "alternative rock" meant something.

  3. Pamela

    American show; Columbus <3

  4. Aesthetical Twat

    I’m very tempted to turn this on full blast in a car and ride around with my mates without a care in the world.

    [Verse 1]
    Focused raw reptilian ambition
    From the dark side where it's all a game
    As the pieces move into position
    Did you feel a flicker in your brain?

    [Chorus]
    Charm assault
    Get out of my brain
    You can't leave but
    The truth will always remain
    Your charm assault
    Has scarred the world
    It looks so ugly
    As your lies begin to unfurl

    [Verse 2]
    Acid sweating hunchback apparition
    Privilege abused at every turn
    Serious as a heart attack he's standing
    He sets fire to your world and lets it burn

    [Chorus]
    Charm assault
    Get out of my brain
    You can't leave but
    The truth will always remain
    Your charm assault
    Has scarred the world
    It looks so ugly
    As your lies begin to unfurl

    Always and forever, thank you to Great Britain and the British people whose creativity, since the 1960s, has given the rest of the World hundreds of unique bands such as the Ride and music of unparalleled beauty, quirkiness and atmosphere. What would our lives have been without British bands?

  14. Andrew Grant

  18. TheAnalPunisher

  19. Rep0007

  20. the420xtc

    WOOOOOOOOOOOT RIDE"S BACK!!!!!!

  21. Black Magic

    Not joking ever since I heard this song it’s been stuck in my head just all the time. Great track, love Ride

  22. mist89100

    The video is terrible

  23. Dave Mcshee

    Paris 68!

  24. Sami Korkiakoski

    Great tune! Hope I see you someday here in Finland! <3

  25. David Guyomard

    Charm assaulted!

  26. David Bone

    Veo masones en todo lado jajaj es como si tuvieran una marca y la energía de esa gente es diferente es una energía fea

  27. Jon

    Most of the reviewers were spot on but the Spin and Pitchfork reviews are shit. Did they really listen to the record?

  28. Jon

    Fantastic Lp from beginning to almost end. Great to see them back. Cali is the best song I've heard all year. Cheers and hope to see you on tour.

  29. dream

    Better with each listen and v cool live too

  30. Torstein Hamnvik

    yess!!!

  31. Sebastián Aguirre

    Andy Bell rayó tanto con Sonic Redemption de Los Ganjas que hasta le hace tributo al video acá :D

  32. THE ABIGOR

    Best track on the Album tbh . Bring the darkness back into yer music Ride fuck that summery drivel.Charm assault has that old vibe big bass line just a great track and thanks for that. 2.5/5 for yer album.

  33. Jonny Chinchen

    Great music, but such cringeworthy lyrics, outright political messages from a shoe gaze band, how dreamy...shame.

  34. Riki r

    oh si. los 90s nos dejaron muchas bellezas como por ejemplo a los Ride. gracias por volver

  35. EXPLORE JAPAN

    Somehow I feel like this was meant to be a Beady Eye song. Does anyone else have the same vibe?

  36. Massimo Mattana

    good song. better than slowdive

  37. Indy Indiemoodd

    So Fresh ! So Luminous ! Thanks !!!

  38. cinemar

    sounds great.

  39. mikee1107

    wow come to Aberdeen again please you guys rock Andy Bell and John squire best guitarists of my generation

  40. I E

    Im loving it!!!!

  41. timuka venables

    I love this, it so reminds me of the opening track on Bossanova

  42. Illusion Of Gaia

    The band Real Estate check them out if u like Ride

    Hieronymus Bosch

    Real Estate are great but shoegazers they ain't. Check out the Bristol band Secret Shine, more or less contemporaries of Ride, for another fine example, if lesser known, of a shoegazer band. They also have a new record this year for fans of the genre (There Is Only Now) which is excellent.

  43. Coso Cos

    Brilliant.... never heard of these guys. They are talented. Love the beat. Cosentino, Perth Western Australia. 6/5/17

  44. Comunicación y Diseño

    solid return

  45. Dead Man Walking

    Glad they're back... But this song is objectively weak.
    Sounds like a B-side of their early works.
    Nowhere was a summit. And Leave them all behind is still one of my ten favorite songs ever... We're far from it. :-(
    Not nostalgical enough to be dithyrambic.

  46. Dunbar

    Ride's new stuff is some of the most politically charged music I've listened to in decades. Love it.

  47. Jaime Alarcón

    nobody notice that this song is about may 68?

  48. Little G.

    Will you come on tour in north Italy? we're waiting for you guys!

  49. Garry Williams

    Playing to their strengths. Good to have them back.

  50. sam bana

    the intro was kinda corny but the rest of the song is good

  51. Catherine ZetaReticuli

    not sure about the sonic youth breakdown at 3 minutes .seems a bit gratuitous.return to form .great song

  52. TheBuggy242

    nice to hear you again

  53. Evan Wilson

    Love this, amazing song

  54. summerteeeth

    Would have been nice to see a bit more of the band. Not really criticism - I like the track and video.

  55. dmm121182

    Ride is one of my absolute favorite bands of all time. My jaw hit the floor when I first found out that they're releasing their 5th Studio Album "Weather Diaries" on June 16th, 2017 - over 21 years after their 4th Studio Album "Tarantula". Ride is criminally underrated and massively underappreciated. They have one of the most consistently stunning and impressive Discographies in the history of Rock 'N' Roll. Even all of their Rarities and B-Sides are masterpieces.

  56. Prevara

    someone please PLEASE tell me where I can find the tab for this

  57. Dan Hare

    Riff is like House of Love

  58. Lonely Traveller

    Sounds like a cross between material from Nowhere and Going Blank Again. No bad thing as those were by far and away their best 2 albums. Carnival of Light and Tarantula had their moments but their earlier stuff defined them.

  59. MyAssStings

    boring, unoriginal, uninspiring, waste of time

    gray man

    so was your comment

  60. alice doonai

    Pure AS EVER <3

  87. wearekasule

    superb stuff. cant wait until tomorrow. Ride and the Mary Chain. oh aye.

    gray man

    Slowdive!!!

  88. violatress

    Very good single, the new material sounds amazing live too! Ride always has been my favourite 'shoegaze' band. Great to see the lads touring and recording quality material. Brought a tear to my eye, I have to say :)
    So much better than the woeful Roses 'comeback'.

  89. Shoegazer 93

    PALE SAINTS- WE ARE WAITING

    ImpendingRiot83

    Oh fuck, if that happened I would absolutely *_DIE,_* I need Ian Masters' vocals over mind-expanding soundscapes back in my life.

  90. Starry&Bohemian

    Zuper good ! At least as good as it was back then

  91. Stephen Conway

    Who gives this a thumbs down? Bloomin' amazing from The Oxford Boys!

  92. scott stucker

    i hope slowdive has a new album

    scott stucker

    "they should have called this a ride cookie , elvis."

  93. Brenda Luna

    "forth coming album?" I thought Tarantula was their forth record

    Jörn Tiegel

    Brenda Luna you're right, Tarantula was the fourth RIDE album...

    Brenda Luna

    yes sorry about that, english is not my first lenguage and i read it like fourth

  94. Marquee Smith

    dear God thank you

  95. Kool Rock Radio

    Kool!!!
