Heavy Bells
J Roddy Walston And The Business Lyrics


Mama knew my mind, would know this song
Mama knew my mind, would know this song
I muscle holler and a moan
I muscle holler and a moan
Black chords in the night

Daddy burnt the dirt, but the seed survived
Daddy burnt the dirt, but the seed survived
Holler and a moan
I muscle holler and a moan
Black chords in the night

I know that old catholic tone
I know that old catholic tone
The heavy bells
The heavy bells
The heavy bells are tolling out a tune
The heavy bells
The heavy bells

Oh, God
I felt that metal move
You're gonna wake up
You're gonna wake up
You're gonna wake up
Find the heavy bells
Toll their tune for you too

Black sounds shake upon his folds
Black sounds shake upon his folds
Hear that nerve hound moan
I hear that nerve hound moan
Chop talking in the night

Blood and honey fixed to his beard
Chaser to the taste
I've come to fear
Hear that nerve hound moan
I hear that nerve hound moan
Chop talking in the night

I know that old catholic tone
I know that old catholic tone
The heavy bells
The heavy bells
The heavy bells are tolling out a tune
The heavy bells
The heavy bells
Oh, God
I felt that metal move
You're gonna wake up
You're gonna wake up
You're gonna wake up
Find the heavy bells
Toll their tune for you too

All hail, heavy bells
All hail, heavy bells

All hail, heavy bells
All hail, heavy bells
All hail, heavy bells
All hail, heavy bells

For those looking to get some meaning of this song, I'll try my best to explain:

His mama knew who he was and how he feels, his daddy tried to stop him from being who he is and almost succeeded. The "muscle hollar and a moan" is his own way of describing his singing. "Black chords" and "black sound" are references to his music in the eyes of those that dont approve. The "catholic" tone is used possibly as a religious reference, but mostly to describe conformity in life OR other types of music. The "heavy bells" represents his kind or style of living and music (tolling out of tune) according to the norm. "You're gonna wake up" and "Toll their tune for you too" are expressions of his plea for you to be yourself and get rid of conformity. "Black sounds upon his folds" references the folds of sheep (conformity) being threatened by his music which takes form in the "nerve hound" or wolf. Chop talking is a hunting reference conerning the wolf hunting the sheep...meaning his music hunting down conformity. Blood and honey are the spoils of consuming conformity, which he has come to fear.

I hope this helped show why this song will last forever.

@Brian Boros I tend to think you’re right I thought it was about meth though don’t know probably because I was on at the time I heard it first

Brian Boros

Naw, he's talking about the heavy bells you hear when you smack one straight into the main line.

That was a great description, bro. I sent it to a friend and she didn't get it either.
