Acid Turkish Bath Shelter From The Storm

Acid Turkish Bath (Shelter From The Storm) was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the 6th track on Velociraptor!.

BackgroundEdit

Sung by Serge, Acid Turkish Bath starts with a Native American call and was inspired by Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song - trying to achieve a "huge John Bonham drum sound" - and old Turkish psychedelic records.[1] Lyrically, it's about wanting to escape from things that are going on in the world. According to Serge, the title came from quickly naming the file on the computer the first thing that came to his mind, which then stuck.[2] Tom has called it "intelligent Take Aim" and named it as the song on the album he is most proud of.[3][4]

LiveEdit

Acid Turkish Bath (Shelter From The Storm) has never been performed live.

LyricsEdit

Cotton mouth is bleeding
One way glass deceiving

Dope me up on women and credit cards
Promise x-ray vision and fancy cars
The tables set for the bourgeoisie
Better get in line with your dinner tray

'Cause when it's all ran out and it's just you left
With the nut job swigging his crystal meth
And there's a constant ring of machinery
Is there a place for me in history

Sending the boys away
Leaving them out to play
Throwing them miles away
Now it's another day
To shelter from the storm

Sons of time are rising
Sixteen minds exploding

It's the 21st century ain't it cool
It's taught us to eat and how to drool
And the wind up merchants are out in force
Telling you my brother to change your course

And you won't be the first to think it's wrong
When all you really want is to bang a gong
'Cause it's all sewn up in our misery
Is there a place for me in the history

Sending the boys away
Leaving them out to play
Throwing them miles away
Wishing for new years day
To shelter from the storm

We gotta break down the walls
And shelter from the storm
