#SongLyricSunday ♫ “Voodoo” – Godsmack

This song is actually listed as a “hidden” track on Godsmack’s debut album and was one that catapulted them to popularity on all of the rock channels in the 90’s – go figure, a pagan themed song gaining popularity during the era of Goth? Noooo… Okay, all sarcasm aside, this song is still a fan favorite and whether you like the content or not, the sound is hauntingly catchy and among those you might find yourself humming out of the blue while doing housework…or you know, burning candles.

This week’s theme follows the Chinese Zodiac list of animals: Rat/Ox/Tiger/Rabbit/Dragon/Snake/Horse/Sheep/Monkey/ Rooster/Dog/Pig

Since I already used Alice in Chains’s “Rooster” during Rocktoberfest and have never been a big fan of the Beastie Boys, despite actually liking “Brass Monkey” – I’ve decided to go with a Me themed song since I was born in the year of the Snake. Too bad that doesn’t grant me with the ability to speak Parseltongue. Maaaaan!

Make sure to stop by Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me to check out all of the other song picks for today. Enjoy!

 I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I want to be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Candles raise my desire
Why I'm so far away
No more meaning to my life
No more reason to stay
Freezing feeling, breathe in, breathe in
I'm coming back again

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I want to be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Hazing clouds rain on my head
Empty thoughts fill my ears
Find my shade by the moonlight
Why my thoughts aren't so clear
Demons dreaming, breathe in, breathe in
I'm coming back again

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I want to be here again
And I don't remember why I came

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I want to be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I want to be here again
And I don't remember why I came

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I want to be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo

So far away
I'm not the one who's so far away
I'm not the one who's so far away
I'm not the one who's so far away

  1. I’m from the year of the rat – which makes one of my selections sooo appropriate!! 😂

    But I know Godsmack! Was never a fan or follower, but you know me…if my children played it, I had to listen and find out who the group was!

    Funny, they’re all grown and gone and STILL giving me music suggestions! 😁

    Good to see you back in the SLS challenge, A.C.! 👍😊

    • It’s funny, because I remember the song Ben, but I had no idea it was for a scary movie about killer rats lol. Then again, I wasn’t much for scary movies growing up, but definitely loved music.

      Thanks, Fle! I’m trying to get back into the blogging rhythm and will hopefully be popping up more frequently. 😀
