She Builds Quick Machines
Velvet Revolver Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hold fast, motor off
Come strong, let it roll
Ice cold desert stone
She build a quick train
Seems to keep her motor clean
Saw the visions and a wet machine
She's always quick to fight
We're breaking through tonight

I could feel it when you push straight down
I could feel it when they stood their ground

Roll over, right
Keep it through the night, right, right
Keep it through the night
Right in my sight, keep it through the night
I'll smash right through your spotlight

She ran away to Texas
To keep away the excess
Old ex in Vegas don't back Texas
She burned her inheritance
Danced across America
At the all-night sex show so far from home

I could feel it when you push straight down
I could feel it when they stood their ground

Roll over, right
Keep it through the night, right, right
Keep it through the night
Right in my sight, keep it through the night
I'll smash right through your spotlight

What you give is what you take
What you bleed is what you break
I bleed for you
I'd steal for for you
I'd take, I'd take, I'd take, I'd take, I'd take, I'd take, I'd take, I'd take

I could feel it when you push straight down
I could feel it when they stood their ground

Roll over, right
Keep it through the night, right, right
Keep it through the night




Right in my sight, keep it through the night
I'll smash right through your spotlight

So, in the middle of a rescue mission, Slash stops to play a guitar solo. Do you think that might have irritated the other guys as they were trying to free the angel?

"Nice shot, Scott!"
"No problem, Duff. I've got you covered."
"Hey, anyone seen Slash?"
......
"Dude, Slash, is this really an opportune moment for a fucking guitar solo?"
"Sorry man, gotta shred."

Velvet Revolver breaks up



@alexharris3773

Hold fast little love
Burn it strong, let it roam
Ice cold desert snow
She build a quick dream
Sister keep her motor clean
Sunday visits and a wet machine
She's always quick to fight
We'll break her through the night

I can feel it when you pull straight down
I can feel it when they stood their ground
Roll over right
Keep it through the night
Right, right
Keep it through the night
Right in my sight
Keep it through the night
I'll smash right through your spotlight

She ran away to Texas
To keep away the excess
Old ex in Vegas, dope, back Texas
She burn through inheritance
Danced across America
At the all night sex show so far from home

I can feel it when you pull straight down
I can feel it when they stood their ground
Roll over right
Keep it through the night
Right, right
Keep it through the night
Right in my sight
Keep it through the night
I'll smash right through your spotlight

Oh, what you give is what you take
What you bleed is what you break

I'd bleed for you
I'd steal for you
I'd take
I'd take
I'd take
I'd take
I'd take
I'd take
I'd take
I'd take

I can feel it when you pull straight down
I can feel it when they stood their ground
Roll over right
Keep it through the night
Right, right
Keep it through the night
Right in my sight
Keep it through the night
I'll smash right through your spotlight

In my approximate 13 years of actively listening and being critical of music, this has got to be one of my top 3 solos of all time. Way to fucking go. It's been 6 years since I first heard this song, and it has always been fuckin' awesome. Fuck yeah. Fuck.

Im gonna write that entire post again just because this solo causes such a major hard on.
