WAXING LYRICAL WITH LIARS TEETH
As an integral part of any song, lyrics act a way for artists to divulge their thoughts with listeners, but with so many songs out there, how can you be sure to hear all of these messages?
To grasp these hidden meanings, we have asked LIARS TEETH to showcase some of their favourite, original lyrics and are pleased to feature them as our Waxing Lyrical!
Today’s Waxing Lyrical With LIARS TEETH dives into the lyrics of their song ‘Gold Beast’.
Liars Teeth is a rock band hailing from London.
Alex (vocals) Josh (Guitar) Rico (Bass) and Russell (Drums) formed in late 2017 and began independently recording their EP by the start of the following year. Having only played a handful of shows in the last few months, Liars Teeth are already gaining a following on the London scene and have created a sound that can be compared to bands like Interpol, Fugazi, Queens Of The Stone Age and Radiohead.
I have you wrapped around my throat
Grip me don’t let go
I’l hold my breathe
Don’t let go
Dead eyes, staring back at me
In the mirror
Is it to late, is it to late for me
Gold beast fang teeth
Got your grip on me
Dead eyes go blind
In the mirror
Dagger and shield
Protect me from how I feel
I have no shame
The night will know my name
Your deepest darkest secrets
Are safe with me
The lyrics are based around the idea of having the devil on your shoulder, hearing voices, and quite darkly suicide.
Perhaps people wouldn’t necessarily realise as such. I had a loose idea of an image in my head of a ‘noose that turns into a snake’. Make of that what you will.
