about

SLINGSHOT Vienna, Austria

The sound of the viennese band Slingshot shows the great bond of the four musicians to the RockMusic of the 70ties and 90ties. „Solid Stoner Rock with lightly progressive elements“ (Strombringer), but also facets from Psychedelic Rock, Blues and Grunge can be found in their compositions. ... more

Track Name: The Dark Speech of the Moon
welcome lunatics,
nice to see you here.
i have something to say.

regardless men
don't understand
our one way destiny

Now, will you follow me?
You will!
Now will you follow me?

be proud of four
scars on your chest
no silver bullet will penetrate

human misbelief
won't prevent them
of getting eaten alive

Now, will you follow me?
You will!
Now will you follow me?

my wish is your command
to allow full bent
keep the focus in mind

no grace, no fear
just carry on
go on to whack
and waste someone
the more the better is
not enough
we came out as winner

And you will follow me!
You will!
And you will follow me!

look at my followers
just dummy freaks
they gonna make it real

i see it
in their eyes
i see it

i see it
in their eyes
i see it
Track Name: Steamroller
steam and dust are coming from
slightly moving all along
first being seen on number 19
on the highway never clean

wheels, smokebox

no cooling off period
built to run through hell to god
on the road to never come back
until the roadway got a crack

you're still reliable
in going on
but where to go
is something you don't know
oh you don't know

rolls, scraper bars, chain drive

chimney
chimney
chimney
chimney

heavy wheels are rolling on
whats in your way, then is gone
a wild machine out of control
it is designed to roll

traction, engine

coal burns down

you're still reliable
in going on
but where to go
is something you dont know
oh you dont know

rolls, scraper bars, chain drive

coal burns down
steam rises, steamroller
Track Name: Killer Queen
deep in the woods
where the trees
sing for the dudes
who crawl on their knees

crimson
flowers sprout
out of the blood
from the pieces cut out

it is a place no one has ever seen
shining blue water and the trees so green

steel that harms
with unnatural force
is breaking their arms
and draining the source

taking the live
taking their soul
machines, machines, machines take over control

it is a place no one has ever seen
shining blue water and trees so green
there you can see the queen machine
doing the same old mean routine

rusty nails create a beat
and robots start to move their feet
mankind is about to bleed
the engines need the meat to eat

this is a
killing machine
doing the thing
precisley and mean
sober and clean

killer machine
killer machine
killer machine

it is a place no one has ever seen
shining blue water and trees so green
there you can see the queen machine
doing the same old mean routine

the industry of murder
built by the human race
was taken further
by machines without any grace
Track Name: A Human Riot
i see no smile in here
wanna disappear
but it seems to last forever

robots everywhere
i am forced to dare
what's so wrong big brother

tend to hesitate
and negotiate
now it's time to leave forever

taking heels to
avoid reprise and now
to figure it out

i'm talking bout the freedom
i'm talking bout the ease, to feel the flow
it really doesn't matter
i just give it a try and say goodbye
to be free

i'm trying to defeat
this fucking android breed
they must not win, no never

when the time is right
i'll stand up and fight
just to figure it out

i'm talking bout the freedom
i'm talking bout the ease, to feel the flow
it really doesn't matter
i just give it a try and say goodbye
to be free

hey, i mean now's the time to play
you have to pay

hear their backbone brake
see their bodies shake
now machines lost forever

i'm talking bout the willows
i'm talking bout the whisper in my ears
i'm talking bout the wisdom
i'm talking bout the wings to fly away
left yesterday
Track Name: The Betraying Smile
you don't like to scratch the surface to discover the truth
you, you want your life to be easy and smooth

afraid of the things that may come to light
afraid of the truth, afraid of a fight
pull in the head to avoid a clash
duck out before it comes to a crash

drowned out by your louder words
my quiet remarks have been ignored
you never listen to what i say
but i know about the games you play

you betray

and i am sick of you
your smile is not true
it's easy to live, to love, to breath
and to smile while cheating

like you do

you don't mind about the victims of your abuse
you, you only think of your good excuse

your regulations protect your lies
but i'm not afraid and i will rise
i try not to think of the rules you made
i try to live and not to fade

don't cross my way

cause i am sick of you
your smile is not true
its easy to live, to love, to breath
and to smile while cheating

like you do
like you do
Track Name: Master of Disaster
i sat there alone and kind of sleepless
a new day was somehow alive
i recognized there was something at the window
i took a look and

a yellow something looking like a monster
was staring at me with hate in the eyes
it freaked me out so i ran into the kitchen
i took a knife but what a surprise

oh, i slipped
and fell down
i cut a finger
a clumsy clown

i thought the laugh is always on the loser
and i was right cause the next thing i saw
the yellow something roared with laughter
and hit the ground with his monster claw

the earth shook
my house broke down
i didn't linger
get out of town

i am the master of disaster
my life goes slow but i run faster
i am the master of disaster
my life goes slow but i run faster
i'm the master of disaster

i was dogged by bad luck and misadventure
not to speak from the monster behind
i hit the road, got away, out of the district
but misfortune had not declined

my car stopped
began to smoke
and then exploded
that's not a joke

i got out of the car in time
and ran against a traffic sign
i lay on the floor but i was fine
until the monster covered me with slime

swine, swine, swine
you crossed the line, line, line
i'll rip your spine, spine, spine
now you are mine

i am the master of disaster
my life goes slow but i run faster
i am the master of disaster
my life goes slow but i run faster
i'm the master of desaster

i got rid of this hideous creature
i was happy, as i was alive
then i saw this really big spacecraft
out of the blue and it took a dive

they caught me
some wise guys
brought me away
so nice

blessing in disguise
Track Name: Finely Tuned Motion
do you remember me?
you know me by my first name
i try not to pretend and
i hope you will do the same

the time is right to get on your feet
so stand up and move just close to me
feel the beat and feel the floor and
feel my shaking body

let the tension be released
move in time with me and please
never stop it baby
cause i want to keep it up with you for real

i am sure this is the only right mode to be
and i like the way we fit so please come on and dance with me

it is so easy
to follow you right in time
i go along with your flow and so
it seems to be just mine

what takes possession of you, what are you about to do
i’m so curious about everything as to you
I take you by the hand
and try to understand reading your lips

let the tension be released
move in time with me and please
never stop it baby
cause i want to keep it up with you for real

i’m sure
this is the only right mode to be
i like
the way we fit so please come on and dance with me
Track Name: Reason for Resurrection
now it's over
the work of day is done
the spreading silence
a tribute to the setting sun

i want to go now
i don`t know where to go
to lay my head down
to make my persecutors go

give me a reason to suffer
a reason to cry
a reason to kill
and a reason to die
a reason to hold on
to pass on through
and never to turn back
on the orders of you

gimme just
one reason
to go on this way one more day
to Give more than a fuckin shit
on the words that you say

i got a good reason
not to do what you say
and now you can swallow the dust,
that I kick up on my way

now it's over
the work of day is done
you told me to do it
so I went through it alone

but what I had to leave on the way
it weights more than the money you pay
but what I had to leave on the way
it wheights more than the money you pay

why, why, why ?
why, why, why ?

why, why, should i ?
why, oh why ?
and you didn't realize
and you didn't have to lie

give me a reason to suffer
a reason to cry
a reason to kill
and a reason to die
a reason to hold on
to pass on through
and never to turn back
on the orders of you
Track Name: Trapped in a Tree
i don't know what it takes
to escape from this fixation

what i do is roar
i need no explanation

go

you walked down this road
and expected me to follow

i dont know if its right
but its time for me to swallow

go
go
go
go

leave me by the way
come back and i will travel

believe me when i say
alone i don't know where to go
go

it's been so long since i'm here
but it's so hard to leave
i'm beating on my head and cry
i don't know how to believe

and let go
i don't know
to let go
i don't know

i feel relief when you talk to me
while my friends left me alone
i hear your words and i hear your voice
and my bones start to groan

you said go
and i grow
you said go
and i grow
