Machine Head - Bulldozer Lyrics

Into the battles, making cages rattle
There's a pain that's inside us and we're letting it out
Charge right in, we dare to fail
No one is giving in, always we live to win
A hunger turns and burns inside of all of us
And it will not be denied

Walking a path untraveled to reach higher level
Challenging always going against the grain
Blood for blood - that is the rule
And we will make the rules, never be fortune's fool
There's right and wrong in almost everything we do
And we do what's right

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Somebody told me I should do what they told me
But there's a hole in that plan and I'm tearing it down
Trust our guts, follow our hearts
No one can break these nuts, these lips ain't kissing butts
The path of most resistance tests all of our strength
This strength will not be denied

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all
Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Walking on paths untraveled
Challenging one and all
Deeper into the battles
Alone and standing tall
The more evolving changes
The more we stay the same
Full steam against the odds
Go headfirst against the grain

Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain

Bulldozer goes against the odds
Bulldozer goes against the grain

Against the odds, against the grain
We go against the odds, against the grain

This is the bulldozer
This is the bulldozer

  43. reece parkin

    banging riff but the slow partd ruin it abit for me they shoulda just hammered it the whole way, still love machine fucking head though

  44. Ivan El Machirulo

    Why people don't like this album too much? What's wrong?

    Horror and Halloween 101

    It was heavily influenced by nu metal, which at the time was very popular, so a lot of people though Machine Head "sold out." Personally, I don't really like this album but I quite like The Burning Red.

    Kirby Stomp

    Because this is machine heads best album

  45. Ronaldo Santos


  46. Dimitrije Nikita

    even today these riffs kill newday nu metal, metalcore and shit

  47. SIX

    Nelson Mandela's favorite track.

  48. osssshhh12

    32 seconds "BRING ME WINE"

  49. NPM NPM

    Has anyone noticed the value of the lyrics this song possesses? That is totally relevant to todays mainstream society. Apologies for politicizing the comment section. Peace!

    David Schibilla

    Some of the best lyrics ever. So powerful. Humans are weak, always have been. People need this shit. Live it. Walking on paths untraveled Challenging one and all Deeper into the battles Alone and standing tall The more evolving changes The more we stay the same Full steam against the odds Go headfirst against the grain

  50. Epic Ogrelord

    Gabriel Belon

    +BossProductions Which riff? I dont see any resemblance between them


    I meant sic! Sorry wrong song. Listen to the end of sic . The end of the song when he is screaming sick


    +BossProductions Sounds like Dittohead by Slayer to me. Done way before both songs.

  68. littlesmoke992

    not the best album but an awesome song!


    not the best album but a good album!

  69. Jo Kesonu

    This in my opinion, is the most bad ass music machine head ever made.

    Jo Kesonu

    I had waited nine years to hear this song live. Finally got my wish at the HOB Houston 2013. I'm not sure anyone felt the way I did about that song that night. Fkn rocked it!

    the snowdawg

    @The Industrialist TBH-- Tool or LoG...!! Naw, patiently waiting... Or whatever, I trust ur judgment!! Have u ever seen the MH tour diary from '96?? I just discovered it, is Awesome!! They singing Snoop Dog and Dre...

    Jo Kesonu

    Since we are back in the 90's, I strongly recommend some Bolt Thrower! When cannons fade....ha ha!

    Return the Slab

    Wolves man, that shit is VERY hard

  70. Foever378

    antony hughes

    machine fuckin head

    Jumbo Paras

    No it's Machine Mother Fucking Heads!

  78. fehzorz

    I'd like to heart hem record a more metal version of this song and other songs from their "nu-metal" albums. Speed it up a bit (ie make it consistently fast except the breakdown at the end), change the vocal style a bit and add a guitar solo and you have yourself a song that fits their current (and earlier) metal style.

    Nathan de Groot

    +Gabriel Belon it is nu-metal. more rap. not trash stuff. this realy nu-metal.

    Nathan de Groot

    +Gabriel Belon trash is to soft at this

    Gabriel Belon

    @Ultimate Music Maybe Machine Head songs are mostly Nu Metal , but this one in particular has much more Thrash influences. And some Thrash Metal Bands are really heavy , especially the new ones


    Late comment but the live version on Machine Fucking Head Live is pretty close to this and it destroys man, though it still doesn't have a solo


    For me 'current' (or more recent especially Blackening/Locust) MH is further from the early stuff (first two albums) than their so-called 'nu-metal' albums were (and I've been listening since 94').

  79. Ezequiel Berazategui

    I think i found my alarm

    Krispynachos 99

    my alarm is Messhuggah - Bleed...that shit rips you from your sleep, ready to tear shit up for the day!

    threasa zimmerman

    it is my alarm lol

    Bruno Lr

    The best way to obliterate a song


    Its mine alarm since 2015, never failed

  80. ari achmad


  81. Mike Popowich

    Now I'm starting to wake up!

  82. zellmer

    When I was in school I set this as what played wen the alarm went off.  Was perfect with the intro.

  83. Skillamarinki Dinkydink

    Ok, the MUSIC is good. But i hate Machinehead's vocals, personality, and for some reason the singer bugs the shit out of me

  84. Skillamarinki Dinkydink

    I don't see why people keep bringing up Slipknot... They're not very similar. I love Slipknot, and i've been listening to Machinehead songs for the last hour to see if there's any song by them I actually like besides Darkness Within. Nothing. Sorry, but they're kinda shitty

    Craig Hauser

    Machinehead is amazing hard to believe u like Slipknot and metal and think they suck. Listen to the first 2 albums especially the hits like Davidian, Old, Ten Ton Hammer, and Take my Scars!!

  85. y4rny

    BANG !!!

  86. CrazyBear65

    Saw these guys in Richmond VA with Megadeth a few years ago, walked out of that pit bloody, had the time of my motherfuckin life. \m/ \m/

  87. Julian David

    NO MMS :3

  88. InduztrialRulz

    By far their best song. Love it!

  89. felynecomrade

    Reminds me of Threshold - Slayer

  90. gocubs1815

    they actually played this song live when I saw them on Mayhem Fest in Detroit this year! talk about an unexpected blast from the past!

  91. Shivenis

    You have no idea of music.

  92. MercilessTide

    The ultimate mosh pit song.

  93. daweedian84

    Again, those are both different genres of metal. You can't compare them. And because of that you can't say who has more talent... I think that Machine Head has some insane riffs and a lot of technically hard pieces, but Slipknot has them too. Only ''problem'' here is that you are too big of a Slipknot fan and you don't want to see anything else beside them. It is OK not to like something but to say it is bad just because you don't like it, it makes no sense.

  94. KempfPlus

    2:00 <--- Push for instant orgasm.

  95. 2Bonthewater -- "Live to be On The Water"

    Machine Head pre-dates can anyone compare the two? I love both bands.......the voices.......Machine Head rocks and then some...........always making you bounce...........and metal head has many LOVES: sepeltura, pro-pain, rollins band, CROWBAR--all hail the riffmeister, Pantera, Biohazard, Helmet-------Faith No More.............don't bash it.......ENJOY IT---life is too short to label and destroy........embrace our differences...makes us HUMAN

  96. Shane Schroder

    Thrash metal days! :)
