Soilwork - Parasite Blues Lyrics




All you presence makes me sick as dog
You parasite on a dream
That was worked for so long
You dragged a good soul down
And you buried his will in the mud...stay
Away...

Now she's a savior, a lie, a forced goodbye
Manipulation of the desperate kind... so

I'll give you something
That you can't ignore
A bait to go all the way
A place where your urge gets paid
All hail the parasite blues

She's a lingering creature
She will blow your mind
But when it comes to your end
Of this infected alliance
She won't give in

Feel the love from your savior
A deceiver of trust
All that you give
Will be returned
With your feelings crushed

I'll give you something
That you can't ignore
A bait to go all the way
A place where your urge gets paid
Your conscience all washed away
He gave you a world that serves
What you've done before
Now it is here again, my dear
You just killed a friend....
All hail the parasite blues

Just when you thought
It couldn't get much worse
She raised the bar to an all-time low
You worked so hard at covering it up
But now it's taking a new shape

I'll give you something
That you can't ignore
A bait to go all the way
A place where your urge gets paid
Your conscience all washed away
He gave you a world that serves
What you've done before
Now it is here again, my dear
You just killed a friend

Soilwork Parasite Blues Comments
  1. Daniel Hall

    Their best album by a mile IMO

    (Sponsored comment - lunch paid for by Soilwork)

  2. helder mendes

    This is why I listen to Heavy Metal 😤🤘💥❗

  3. Adrian Hinkley

    I can’t help but think that the lyrics to this song are a jab at Peter Wichers’ wife.

  4. ragnar40kblackmain

    was anyone els just left completely destroyed by that sick ass outro!?

  5. RJ PMH54

    I am hoping to see Soilwork live soon! I keep missing this great metal band!

  6. Gehtdi anschasau

    I miss the good old times, when the drumming was great, the bald dude didn`t try to sing and the melodys wheren`t just chatchy but gripping, like an average stalker sometimes still comes to me at work, i whistle it for hours. also that part 3:40 is stolen from judas Priest`s The troper

  7. Adam Destructor Jr.

    Bjorn's voice is still on top after all this time.

  8. Wolfheart 89

  15. I Be Wither

    All your presence makes me sick as a dog

    She will blow your mind
    But when it comes to your end
    Of this infected alliance

    A deceivement of trust
    All that you give
    Will be returned
    With your feelings crushed

    I'll give you something
    That you can't ignore
    A bait to go all the way
    A place where your urge gets paid

    Solo: Andersson

    I'll give you something
    That you can't ignore

    What you've done before
    Now it is here again. My dear
    You just killed a friend

    shinglam szeto

    Change 'A place where your urge gets paid' to 'A place where your lunch gets paid' :D

  16. I Be Wither

    My first impression: Pretty fucking awesome to be honest.

    My final impression: Absolutely brilliant and quite honestly extremely underrated!

  17. Eisa

    Sums up my ex.

  18. Alvulnax

    Great song!!!

  19. Kris Turner

    Ahahah Forgot About Dre at the end of the playlist. Love that song

  20. Jctt

    amazingly underrated band. better then most could hope to be

  21. danny driver

    big fucking like...........................................:)\m/

  22. Kraxys x

    THIS SONG .... IS FUCKING GOOD !!!!!!

  23. MartyDadRiffs

    The lead on this track is ridiculous!!! Stupid good. So much tone and emotion. Is it Sylvain or David?

    Jacob Marjerison

    I think is David, I watched them perform this live in Denver and they had issues with Sylvain's connection from the amp to the speakers and this song wasn't lacking the lead, it's bad ass how they switch roles depending on the song.

  24. Wolf

    The outro... <3

  25. Mike Descoteaux

    Ola !!!!

  26. lotrouser

    @ryanexsus, It is rather melodic than heavy

  27. Son Toro25

    2 people don't get their lunches paid.

    TaffBrigade

    3 years and only 11 more people. Impressive.

  28. ryanexsus

    My back fucking hurts from how heavy this is.

  29. Jessica Moore

    A place where your lunch gets paid!!!

    De5troyer777

    I knew I wasn't the only one. hahaha xD

    Sonny

    It's "Where your lust gets paid" but I cannot unhear lunch instead of lust lol.

    dodgrblu

    Actually, both are wrong, it's
    "A place where your urge gets paid"

    Dustin M

    Goddamn it FUCK YOU, I heard this song when it first came out and now after seeing this I cannot unhear it lmao.

  30. Evilope

    This fucking band dude, sooo much talent. The vocalist and drummer really stick out for me. Like how does he consistently get right pitch and growl and have so much range? Fucking blessed man.

    killyouradio

    Evilope Speed Strid is king!

  31. Jarrod Stemen

    Can I have my urge get paid along with my lunch? Or is it more of a buy one get one free kind of thing?

  32. PClemente2120

    My lunch just got paid

  33. ThatThinking Guy

    Even though the lyrics are "a place where urge gets paid", I still here where your lunch gets paid. Awesome song. Love it.

    René Schmitz

    Just came here to write the same thing, then discovered your comment :D :D a place where your lunch gets payed

    René Schmitz

    Just came here to write the same thing, then saw your comment :D :D

  34. p3rerang3

    This album kicks ass, and so does this song. \m/ (>_<) \m/

  35. jeschiefa7x

  38. lincaster

  41. Kelly Norby

    I think I love you.

  42. Maideneer

    A place where your lunch gets paid...

  43. RunescapePK619

    BA-DUM--CHH

  44. RottenCash

    well thats some real soilwork then ;)

  45. StrombusJr

    I thought the same thing, it has a mega man-like feeling to it. And I loved it!

  46. FreddyRAGE

    Constipation can be a bitch,maybe this helps her xD

  47. Robbie Fitzgerald

    Is that a moog in the in the outro? Or some weird guitar effect?

  48. Patrick Caillouet

    holy crap your right, maybe that's why this song stood out to me!

  49. zaurutic

    my friend you just killed duffman

  50. Razze5

    I LOVE the bass dropp at 3:46 :)

  51. Black Bull

    One of my favorites from this album. Absolutely perfect.

  52. eius13

    lol! my mom's legs broke every time she heard this song! now she has metal legs!

  53. eius13

    lol, no self-respecting woman would ever mate her soul to one who displayed such public affection. But, as she, assuming, already said she nearly poops herself, you're probably in the clear.

  54. bbp2003

    the beginning sounds like the stage bgm from mega man x

  55. crimsonwizard1988

    in flames has turned into fucking garbage in the last couple of years for some reason. If you want a real good show, stay tuned for any future Dark Tranquillity or Arch Enemy concert in the area.

  56. Reelhi

    its good

  57. Shukkunsendo

    You should probably check that out with a doctor? lol

  58. Happily Content

    This song make me nearly poop my pants every time I hear it. I'm in heaven.

  59. Shive

    Nop :D I love it - the build up in Speeds voice for the final chorus is cool :O

  60. Paul Maas

    anyone else think that the part at 3:55 is a really weird flow?

  61. clay laseter

    Soilwork is by far the best music above all...it holds everything music should be...Just went to the Living infinite tour in Dallas and it was the best show i have been to in 8 years..right along with Inflames ...

  62. MrBrachstar

    That riff and voice ;)

  63. Petar Nikolic

    dat vocals! - makes me wanna get into trouble!

  64. Il Grigio

    Sorry man.. :)

  65. Dennis Kalack

    Dat riff

  66. Lime Icing

    That riff...

  67. Immortal -SIN_21

    omg amazing.

  68. blythebaby777

    amazing band!

  69. Shive

    Love this song, but damn =\ how I hate that expression.
