Skid Row - Beat Yourself Blind Lyrics




[Bach, Bolan, Hill, Snake]

Give me a minute 'cause I'm wrapped in superstition
Pour me a chemical to take away the edge
Don't make up anything that's breaking all your fingers
Just slap around a bit of what it takes to pledge

Carry out another stone as a slave
Ask general-know-it-all "Who's juggling the earth?"
Tease all the natives that will walk across your grave
And shove aside your nation all for what it's worth

[Chorus]
Beat yourself blind [Repeat 6x]
An open eyes and a closed mind

Look at the suit in suspended animation
A faded outline that used to be a man
A piece of paper that's fallen out a window
Has got a better chance to know where it will land

[Repeat Chorus]

To bleed in vain, to bleed in vain--under my eyes are painted skies
Down at the boneyard, they're diggin' up the relics
Handfuls of parasites thrown into machines
I got the phone call they're tearin' down the mission
The zombies had a ball, but don't know what it means

Beat yourself blind

    Beat Yourself Blind lyrics:

    "Give me a minute 'cause I'm wrapped in superstition
    Pour me a chemical to take away the edge
    Don't make up anything that's breaking all your fingers
    Just slap around a bit of what it takes to pledge

    Carry out another stone as a slave
    Ask general-know-it-all "Who's juggling the earth?"
    Tease all the natives that will walk across your grave
    And shove aside your nation all for what it's worth

    Beat yourself blind (6x)
    An open eyes and a closed mind

    Look at the suit in suspended animation
    A faded outline that used to be a man
    A piece of paper that's fallen out a window
    Has got a better chance to know where it will land

    Beat yourself blind (6x)
    An open eyes and a closed mind

    To bleed in vain, to bleed in vain--under my eyes are painted skies
    Down at the boneyard, they're digging' up the relics
    Handfuls of parasites thrown into machines
    I got the phone call they're tearing' down the mission
    The zombies had a ball, but they don't know what it means

    They don't know what it means

    They don't know, they don't know...

    Beat yourself blind"

  20. Lord Kmote

    this is the best skid row album! amazing sound!

  21. Ricardo Costa

    Nessa música, o show fica por conta do Bach, apesar de a banda ser muito boa.

  22. Andrea Esposito

    this song's intro sounds just like an another famous song but I can't remember which

    WomackPhotoKCMO

    @Andrea Esposito "Wrathchild" by Iron Maiden?

  23. bastardscum420

    wow i have to say impressed ,i was just watching that metal show and eddy was bragging about how great this record is and i have to agree.i see on here that this was last album with bach and i guess they saved the best for last. i would actually buy this and i thought i would never say that about a skid row record.

  24. Noahgamerbros Main

    ALL OF THEM!

  25. Donovan S

    "Under my eyes are painted skies" ............. wtf does that mean

    Bobby Fisk

    It means you have vision, is it that complicated?

  26. Brian Ernstrom

    Damn straight zero dislikes

  27. Charmain LaReau

    bad ass bass bad ass song writer. I would like to hear any artist scream out this shit today any day

  28. Bloodrain233

    which album is this from?

  29. roknrollification

    My theory is that it refers to the old wives' tale that excessive masturbation can lead to blindness.

  30. jackattack20000

    Who cares the meaning? Beat yourself blind just sounds brutal when he screams it. >;)~

  31. Joe Cox

    @releasethedark banging your head against a wall maybe?

  32. pyromaniarules

    @releasethedark there is a saying about people jerking off until they are blind. i think its a reference to that saying.

  33. releasethedark

    Guys, I've been struggling to understand what does 'beat yourself blind' stand for. Neither of my american and english friends could answer the question. Any ideas?

  34. MØNTA

    FUCK YEAH!
    BURNING!

  35. Patty Pellom

    @theAbeElement i know me either

  36. Patty Pellom

    @theAbeElement they did. but not until 2003, and Sebastian wasnt on vocals

  37. HotTequilaBr0wn

    @hasan9190 Just get all 3 LPs, they're all great. Subhuman Race is heavier then the first two. You can't go wrong with Iron Will, Bonehead, Fire Sign or My Enemy from Subhuman Race (including the title track which just [email protected]#ing rips).

    Bluesman 78

    It has that Grunge Vibe mixed with heavier Sound. But Slave 2 the grind was Heavy too

  38. Hasan Abbas

    Which songs are the most recommended ones of Skid Row?

    This is AMAZING STUFF!!!

    Cheesy McKnuck

    everything on this album straight up

  39. Stephen StCyr

    Everytime i hear the intro to this song it reminds me of Wraithchild- Maiden

  40. Starchild798

    @HotTequilaBr0wn you can say that again,thank you so much for the upload,this is so fucking awesome

  41. COLOMBIANOMAD

    Great Brutal Bad Ass Song from one of my favorite metal albums ever .. A million thanx for the add bro.. this is for those ignorant weekend rock fans who called Skid Row just another late 80s glam rock garbage .. they evolved into a great Hard Rock/Metal Quintet... Sebastians Vocals In This Song Are Just.... *deep sigh* .. They Leave You Speechless .. In Awe.. Sick!

  42. HotTequilaBr0wn

    @GameOverDude2035 You're welcome. I've seen this posted but it was mostly live versions so I decided to upload the album track. The whole album is awesome.
