Chevelle Family System Lyrics

Last updated: 03/30/2009 11:00:00 AM

Im tired of your open mouth,
Crawling inside my skin,
Endless pain we never quit,
The fight within that prides begun,
Saying its too late,
What a man's got he'll learn to hate.

Forget the time I said I would,
Replace that with I never will,
Beyond the facts held in your face,
Ignore the facts beyond your nose,
Saying it's too late,
What a man's got he'll learn to hate.

Grow up

Now without meaning,
No response, no revealing...

Just grow up!

Damn good song | Reviewer: Anon. | 6/3/2007

Probably the greatest song by Chevelle. No wait, it IS the greatest song by Chevelle! A great contrast intro or heavy and melodic, solid drumming and chunky basslines. (It's 6/8 timing btw, whoever wrote the above comment.) The entire song is badass. Pure and simple.

In the first verse, its not: "the fight within the prides begun," its "the fight within the cross begun"

This song starts out slow, but quickly picks up to a muted metal intro. This is followed by an un-muted replica of the same riff. The next part is a kind of "chorus" since there is not a repeated vocals part, and this part is replayed a few of times. The part after is like a verse which is only played twice on either side of the second "chorus." Following the second verse os a sort of bridge on ther higher strings and a beat patterned bass-style power chord in between. When you think the song is dying off, it comes back with the chorus again and then goes into the end, which is the intro again. This is a fast paced song played at either 3/4 or 6/8 time which is just a thirds beat. It's one of my favorites because of it's got heavy guitar and a great pattern. For all guitarists, this song took me about a day to learn, go to to get the music for it. 8.5/10!!
