Slowdive - Machine Gun Lyrics




See you walking and I know she's my friend again
Just the weight of the water drags me down again
Guess I'll think of the water its my friend, oh yeah
It's just the way that the water makes me feel again

Son of Shiva, I saw him drown
Son of yellow, I saw him drown
It's all I need yeah

See you walking and I know she's my friend again
Just the weight of the water drags me down again
Guess I'll think of the water its my friend, oh yeah
It's just the way that the water makes me feel again

Son of Shiva, I saw him drown
Son of yellow, I saw him drown
It's all I need yeah

    Damn..that picture is incredible. It's so simple, but there's just something about it.

  2. Samantha Donaldson

    I always associate this song with blue winter skies on a sunny day. Wonder why? lol

    Machine Gun by Slowdive and Machine Gun by Jimi Hendrix are 2 of the best songs ever

  15. daniel molitor

    it's weird, they worked with Brian Eno a little bit on this album (he is even given a songwriting credit on "Sing"), but the obvious lift/sampling of Eno's "Becalmed" for the chords here seems to have gone without any attribution or notice?

    fiercedietyknight

    Watch the documentary. Halstead only knew Eno's work producing with Bowie up to this point.

    [Verse]
    See you walking and
    I know she's my friend
    Again
    Just the weight of the water
    Drags me down
    Again
    Guess I'll think of the water
    It's my friend
    Oh yeah
    It's just the way that the water
    Makes me feel
    Again

    [Chorus]
    Son of Sheba
    I saw him drown
    Son of yellow
    I saw him down
    It's all I need yeah

    [Verse]
    See you walking and
    I know she's my friend
    Again
    Just the weight of the water
    Drags me down
    Again
    Guess I'll think of the water
    It's my friend
    Oh yeah
    It's just the way that the water
    Makes me feel
    Again

    [Chorus]
    Son of Sheba

    Son of yellow

    why the fuck is it called "machine gun"? thats literally the last thing i imagine while listening to this music. ironic title?

  37. Miguel Fonte

    Gorgeous! No words.

    I can’t stop staring at my shoes

    lee ananda

    are you looking for that extra distortion pedal amongst all the other pedals?

  39. OriginalLHB

    MBV are very punk oriented. Slowdive created the shoegaze genre and deserve far more credit than they get. Souvlaki Space Station is the most intense wave of bliss ever recorded.

  49. the union of the blue shirted ones

    I've been looking for this song for awhile, finally found it. Gives me memories of when I was a little kid.

  50. Henri São Paulo

    The song talks about the demise of the capital city of Sheba, Ma'rib, that was suposdly destroyed when its dam burst, and might have caused the demise of other cities. "son of Sheba, I saw him drown"

    avedic

    ha....I always heard that line as "Son of Shiva."


    which I actually prefer.... :P

  51. stadioarcadio

    why is there no 10 hour version of this song yet

  52. 1980’s Guy

    Is that a band of sheepdogs or people ? 😂 , great music though 👍

  53. amoorcita

    algum BR aqui?!?!

  54. Jhonatan Candido

    Slowdive, one of the greatest bands that you never heard before.

  55. ---

    This song sounds like the feeling that you have when you put on dry clothes after getting caught out in the rain.

  56. Danny Vasquez

    So I'm curious, being that I've just lately have been doing my research on this band, I read wiki said that during the era of this album which this song came from, they weren't popular, in fact after Pygmalion, they were hated! ?? Any body can confirm that and tell why? And Creation records dropped them after Pygmalion, wow.

    John Burns

    People absolutely hated Souvlaki when it came out. one critic said, other than the song Sing, he'd rather, and i quote, "drown in a bathtub of porridge" than hear the album again.

    Micaela

    John Burns was there any reason for that? thats just crazy to me lol

  61. Andrew Grant

    If there was heaven you would be married to the female vocalists out of slowdive she could sing to you all day no bills to pay or crap jobs and you could just be mesmerised by her voice and buy her icebream and live on bizarre island where indie bands playing all day and night and the world would be a better place everyone would be a lot happier on this island non stop shoegaze with free beer tent this is heaven would be like no politics either non of that crap either just droning guitars and holds of peach full people enjoying good music on this island folk would be very happy I would

  66. Adam H

    Is it "son of Shiva" or "sad machine gun"? Difficult to make out the lyrics. Great song and band whatever the case, much more about the atmosphere than the lyrics anyway ;-)

  67. fiercedietyknight

    Sometimes I wanna drown so I drown myself in this song instead

  68. Ger

    I love fallin asleep to Souvlaki, I usually fall asleep when this song is playing <3

  69. Thesecret Fox1

    I never knew that band before, it's strange sometimes music come at the right time, today is a sad day for me and I heard that song ,it was the moment. ..

  70. Brandon Castillo

    im feeling really anxious but enjoying every second of the song

    son of Shiva

    avedic

    I honestly prefer "son of shiva."
    always heard it that way. plus it still works in the context of what the song's about.
    also... always heard that other line as "solid yellow."
    that's shoegaze for you lol......not the most clear and evident lyrics.

    @avedic to me, shoegaze is all about the vibes and how you feel when listen to it. So, enjoy the song just the way it is, you don't need to find the meaning within

    lee ananda

    Ganesh, the elephant headed god, is the son of shiva, maybe a song about him?!

    John William Waterhouse is my favourite artist! It can't be a coincidence that I love both. They both have that melancholy, dreamy atmosphere, and makes you think of things and worlds that you have never experienced.

    This is absolutely great, breathtaking and deeply touching song. I could listen Slowdive from now to eternity.

  94. Total Armageddon / césar palacio

    Los músicos de antes, vibraban con otra frecuencia energética, por eso se crearon canciones tan magnas como esta.
