Velvet Revolver - Psycho Killer Lyrics

[Talking Heads' Cover]

I can’t seem to face up to the facts
I’m tense and nervous and I can’t relax
I can’t sleep because my bed’s on fire
Don’t touch me I’m a real live wire.

Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away

You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
You're talkin' a lot, but you're not sayin' anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?

Psycho Killer,
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away

Ce que j'ai fait, ce soir-là
Ce qu'elle a dit, ce soir-là
Réalisant mon espoir
Je me lance vers la gloire ... OK
We are vain and we are blind
I hate people when they're not polite

Psycho Killer,
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer,
Qu'est-ce que c'est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run run run away

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....

    In 1981 i was in drug rehab with one of the members of the talking heads ( wont say who out of respect ) we shared a room an he played every nite .

    Speed at 1.50 is a blast

  11. Lilith Akasha

    Görünüşe göre gerçeklerle yüzleşemiyorum
    Gergin ve tedirginim ve gevşeyemiyorum
    Uyuyamıyorum zira yatağım yanmakta

  12. RapCoca HC

    i prefer original song !!!!!!!

  13. Paco Chuquiure

    Good band but they lacked original Tunes in the level of this one (talking heads) to be considered a great one. Not in this lifetime though.

    Clarkson Fisher III

    no one can write songs like David Byrne though

  14. Deedi


  15. Francesco Boni

    Rip scott

  16. Marci Nelson

    *RIP* \m/\m/

  17. Conor Cleare

    i like when bands make covers their own but this is not great.. BTW im a massive fan of the band..

  18. Michele Saylor

    How about the originals? Talking Heads??

  19. kilroy920

    There is a band called one bad son who do a cool version of this. Check it out, it's pretty awesome

  20. Arsya Rafa Yusfansyah


  21. Stoop!d Monkey

    Set speed to 1.25 and enjoy the perfect eargasm

    Roberto Solimeno

    Nah, 1.75 awesome XD

    Leonardo Trindade

    Nice far far far better

    Rob Caceno

    Awesome! Thank you for that.



  22. Ricardo Herrera

    el gran scott ohhh yeahhh

  23. Douglas Wilson

    Great cover, but the tempo is too slow, the original is better. Scott could sing most anything just as well as the original or better, this is the only exception I've found. still Love it though R.I.P. Brother Scott, you'll be sorely missed !


    Recommendation: kick up the speed to 1.25x.

  24. Xiatrbl

  34. zombeast23

    My favorite song is slither only

  35. Outer Haven

    Much much better than the original. 

    Steve Kountz

    Even the Cage The Elephant version is better than this.

    Shintaro Tsujimura

    Talking Heads is artsy farsty nerd rock with horrible fucking singing. I'd rather listen to hillbilly country than the original version by Talking Heads.

    Dilior Vorx

    this version sucks, distorsion doesnt mean better kids...

  36. Amber Clark

    This cover made me wanna die... So bad.

  43. Matheus Silva

    essa parte é viciante "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa Far Better"

  44. Andressa Zacarias

    Olha só se tu é fã do GUNS nn importa se ta ruin ou nn so nn aceito que falem mal deles ta ok vlww

  45. Michael Jackson

    More juicy than talking heads . But everyone has own style.

  46. simplyrockblog

    The whole point of a cover is to take a song and modify it so that it suits your style of music. It's not meant to be better than the original and it's not meant to be disrespectful towards it. It's just there because VR like the song and wanted to make their own version of it and aim it towards their fans. And if you ask me, it's an amazing version of a great song!

    Daniel Goemaat

    simplyrockblog well said

  47. Igor Prpić

    dugo nisam čuo bolju obradu

  48. francesco1435

    I prefer the original version

    Cet accent français...! Horrible !

    Mais Velvet domine malgré tout !

  50. Bol Ogenstein

    Cool cover.... If I wanted something heavy I'd check this, but the original is more.... original.

  51. Manuel Todde

    only Talking heads.

  52. Rockettone


  53. Geronimo Diggler

    no one can be better then talking heads :)

  54. pauloffreire freire

  55. jay Ra

  61. Aaron DeGaray

    much better than the talking heads' version

  62. makiskon27

  63. Francesca Cifola

    I love it

  64. Dushko Talevski

    Am I the only one that hears: FAP FAP FAP FAAAAAAAAP FAP, FAP FAP FAP FAAAAAAP FAP?! o.O

  65. Max Anderson

    I'd murder it!

  66. Max Anderson

    I'd like to do this as a cover!

  67. Patrick Ford

    Awful. I love Scott Weiland, and even GnR, but this is terrible. Take a bass-guitar and vocal driven song and muddle the shit out of it with distorted guitars. Then mix it "hot" ruining any dynamic separation. Pure shite.

  68. Foodfast123

    wybacz :)

  69. Wiktoria Nowak

    Wybacz, że rozczaruję, ale nie mam możliwości- jestem kobietą.

  70. Foodfast123

    Widzę, że mam do czynienia z ekspertem. ;)

  71. Wiktoria Nowak

    zawsze warto spróbować

  72. Foodfast123

    I can't reach it!

  73. Josh Crawford

    Jesus! This is one of the worst covers I've ever heard

  74. Alex


  75. Little Miss Duck

    mmm there a great band, but the original one with the Taking heads sounds better... it has like a more disturbing sound to it... I mean it´s just my humble opinion...

  76. X-Maverick


    Not anymore terrible than the original version.

  77. Ulysses Skywalker


  78. FN-1138

    Good cover...that all

  79. Ho Lee Fuk

    Original is so much better.

  80. Ho Lee Fuk

    @ThePhilosopher1996 because you have no quality in your taste.

  81. rodrigo vazquez

    un asco eso que me gustan los velvet revolver pero cada uno a lo suyo dejemos a david byrne este temazo por favor jajaja me dio asco

  82. senhor furnication

    melhor que o guns atual!!

  83. Lucía Tercic

    Love this cover

  84. Simba

    @SLASHdaROCKER i think this osng is even better than the original one

  87. Filippo Piovano

    I honestly don't see why anyone can dislike this.

  88. pennydesouza

  89. pennydesouza

    No menace.

  90. rosalbina188

    love both versions.. maybe cos the song is very good!

  91. SaturnineGirl

    This is just awful.

  92. marcsbarea

    Cage the elephant's version is waaay better, I don't like this...

  93. Fernando Hernandez

    fuckin' awesome cover!!

  94. memoeslink

    This version is good, but David Byrne's voice in the original, rocks. :D

  95. WCarnation

    Terrible, totally took the groove out of the original and threw in some buttrock

  96. The AMV TOP 50

    god, why slow the song down? speed it up if anything!
