Machine Head - White-Knuckle Blackout! Lyrics




Veins are a racetrack for fuel that I need
Life on the edge is the bread which I feed
Standing alone, open for all to see
My tunnel vision for life, it drives me

Focus in closer
Releasing the fear

White - knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush
Wide-eyed and red-faces, my skin hot and flushed
The hair stands up down the backside of my neck
Blood's beginning to boil the beads of sweat

Fear has its place in the scars that I bear
Deep in the mine, behind everything shared
Fixate my sickness as long as there's air
Headstrong I'll forcibly change what was there

By focusing closer
Releasing the fear

White - knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush
Wide-eyed and red-faces, my skin hot and flushed
The hair stands up down the backside of my neck
Blood's beginning to boil
These beads of sweat I'll dry, out of my eyes
And blacken everything except the goal out

Adrenaline is my fuel when I've obstacle to climb
Adrenaline is the lubrication , focusing my mind
Adrenaline is telling me when someone's thinking they're too cool
To raise my middle fingers up and say "fuck you"

Adrenaline is fueling my mint to focus my climb
Reaction evoked at the challenge provoked out of you
Adrenaline is fire to fuel
You wanna fire my fuel?
I'll fire back a fuck you!

  1. EZ Assegai

    their best song hands down

  2. Osman López

    2019? this era is the best of the MH

  3. Ivan Petrow

    HELP! Who can understand the background lyrics at 2-50? It sounds like: "It's okay". So it's like:
    "'Adrenaline is fire to fuel You wanna fire my fuel?
    I’ll fire back a fuck you! (It’s OK!)"
    Am I right??? Who can listen it too?

  4. Another account I didnt need to make j.s.

    My favorite Machine Head album!

  5. extreme metal music snake

    The "FUCK YOU!" at the end is me when I'm looking at my maths homework!😂

  6. charles Lane27

    Rob flynn is the genius of heavy metal.

    Fred Durst

    Yes until his recent mid life crisis. This man is losing his god damn mind and its sad lmao.

  7. jiveeei

    it did indeed sound Slipknot-esque at 2:20

  10. Lin Yao

    not pop and not hip hop. They're pitiful excuses of genres.

  11. Lin Yao

    more like korn

    M3TAL43V3R

    I see you're a metalhead but the stuff you upload are questionable lol

  12. Ashley longoria

    I love machine head <3 thanks for uploading this song!!

    Drumilo

    i love you

  13. Leon Spohr

    Corey has more bass in his voice, and his voice is more scratchy ;)

  14. Tyler Lucarelli

    Musically that is

  15. Tyler Lucarelli

    I agree with your dubstep theory, but not the other ones. You just need to open up to other peoples words.

  16. Tyler Lucarelli

    True. I prefer nu metal over everything, but I've heard pretty good rap songs. Some of my favorite ones are Till I collapse by Eminem, Fast Lane by Bad Meets Evil, and (lol) lots of other ones with Eminem. Oh well. We like what we like right? No ones forcing people to listen.

  17. Some One

    Its A Very Bad Song

  18. IIGAMEZIIFREAKII

    So you only listen to live instrumentals?

  19. ITchee Beard

    Considering MOST decent hip hop is acoustic instruments that've been sampled haha And most metal is Electric instruments put through a multitude of digital effects -.-

  20. IIGAMEZIIFREAKII

    Not every rap beat is made on a computer?

  21. Piliongamer

    I prefer music made on real instruments not on computers

  22. Mopar Volkswagen

    MH? I don't see any racing slicks...

  23. Wrathchild1995

    sounds like machine head mixed with slipknot XD what a kick ass combination

  24. IIGAMEZIIFREAKII

    It doesn't actually. Grow the fuck up, every type of music is beautiful in it's own way.

  25. Mike Ciccia

    great song.

  26. Teodor

    you're*

  27. Elias Åberg

    0:22 the most epic drop in music history

  28. wrytard

    Kids. Seriously. This is an adult song. If you want to argue like petty grade-schoolers, go to Dora the Explorer and argue there.

    Now, if you would like to politely discuss the subject at hand - a song about adrenaline and fighting by the band Machine Head - then please, continue.

    On that note, my god this song is sexy. It's not often you get a good rage song that's both not overdone and well made.

  29. Felipe Motta

    i like slipknot and machine head so what???
    just enjoy the music dude

  30. 2muchmetal41hand

    @PornstationPortable get it right cory taylor sounds like him bcause machinehead was around before slipknot

  31. V Blade

    @dude991575 - Don't judge his skill on the shitty music he plays, he's an outstanding guitarist.

  32. Andres Quezada

    @SUPERCHARGER2001 haha racist? I just listen to good music and don't compare bands to bands cause each have their own unique style.

  33. Eddyy_

    @54321234512345 But it sounds a bit like Corey Taylor...

  34. matthew wood

    hey can u do lyrics for this vid cause my dumass freinds cant understand the singer but i do perfectly

  35. Andres Quezada

    @washburnepiphone Slipknot's a bunch of queers behind masks

  36. 101010 100101

    stop relating slipknot to machine two different bands, two different music styles take your slipknot shit pop else where!

    hoodrich J59

    Liam Griffin when in the fuck was slipknot pop 😂. especially in their older days you fucking elitist.

  37. MidnightChampion

    Hmm....Backyard Wrestling. Thank YOU! :D

  38. Shengis Khan

    Nu metal madness! I love it!

  39. Von smotcH

    @washburnepiphone Dont ever say that shit again

  40. Ambrish Saxena

    @washburnepiphone ----same with you dude!!!
    \m/

  41. mxlx95

    Machine head is awesome, cant wait til their new album comes out later this year.

  42. SlaytanicPOWER

    @54321234512345
    It's the nu-metal influence. MH had some of it in it's chops at this point.

  43. joseph21394

    they make some good nu metal. very thrashy and heavy

  44. tra1215

    I love this song. Did you know the drill sound that starts at 2:19 is an actual power drill. The guitarist ran it along the guitar strings last time I saw them in concert.

  45. Maggie Johnson

    I totally forgot this awesome song existed until five seconds ago.

  46. KreepMaster TV

    this song makes me jump! old school MH for da win

  47. Bob Dweller

    Adrenaline is my fuel when I've obstacle to climb, Adrenaline is the lubrication, focusing my mind, Adrenaline is telling me when someone's thinking they're too cool - To raise my middle fingers up and say "fuck you"!

  48. washburnepiphone

    I can hear slipknot at 2:20 ...

  49. sirshit6

    The Blood's Beginning To Klot These Beads Of Sweat!

  50. Anskarap
