Rock Heroes - Slash - Velvet Revolver - Slither


Velvet Revolver - Slither


This is the first single from Velvet Revolver's debut album. The group was comprised of former members of Guns N' Roses with lead singer Scott Weiland (formerly of The Stone Temple Pilots). In 2003, they contributed the song "Set Me Free' to the soundtrack for the film The Hulk. That song helped get them signed to BMG records and also appears on the Contraband album.

Scott Weiland says:

"The lyrics are about a relationship. 'When you look you see right through me, cut the rope, fell to my knees, born and broken every single time.' It's just feeling not right in a situation."


Slither - Lyrics


Hey Hey Hey


When you look you see right through me

Cut the rope, fell to my knees

Born and broken every single time


Always keep me under finger

That's the spot where you run to me

Might see some type of pleasure in my mind


Yeah, here comes the water

It comes to wash away the sins of you and I

This time you see


Hey hey hey


When you seek me you destroy me

Rape my mind and smell the poppies

Born and bloodied every single time


Always keep me under finger

That's the spot where you might linger

But I see some type of pleasure in my mind


Yeah, here comes the water

It comes to wash away the sins of you and I

This time you see

Like holy water

It only burns you faster than you'll ever dry

This time with me


When you look you see right through me

Cut the rope, fell to my knees

Born and Bloodied

Every single time


Yeah, here comes the water

It comes to wash away the sins of you and I

This time you see

Like holy water

It only burns you faster than you'll ever dry

This time with me


Hey, hey, hey


Velvet Revolver - Slither - Live
