Townsend, Devin - Gato Lyrics




So you and I, we've come to this place
And never did I believe that I'd survive
Now what ever happens know that I'm about honor
Honor among thieves (amen)
So you and I, we talk a little
About the themes and all the thinking, then I die
A little
Whatever happened about honoring thy father, mother

Honor me

Backtrack easy, everything's easy tell me again?
'Is it us or them, us or them?'
Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
Beware the bad people and I'm a bad man

So you and I, we talk a little
About the fate of all those days and then I die
Whatever happened to your words about honor?!?

Honor among men!

Backtrack easy, everything's easy tell me again?
'Is it us or them, us or them?'
Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
Beware the bad people I'm a bad, bad man

So you and I, we've come to this place
And never did I believe that I'd survive this
Now what ever happens know that I'm about honor
Honor, honor, honor

Backtrack people, everythings evil tell me again?
'Is it us or them, us or them?'
Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
Beware the bad people I'm a black cat man

Townsend, Devin Gato Comments
  1. KingStibroz

    I was so stoked to finally, after seeing Devin live 6 times before, to hear them play songs from Ki. Was the highlight of the night for sure. Great show in Turku!

    meshugeah

    Same here, Roxy, Prague. Ki songs with Ché, oh my god.

  2. LiquidBlack Sleepsick

    So we've come....to this place.....😥

  3. steamedrice97

    3:50 That's the Dark Crystal Main Theme.
    Also used in his Strapping Young Lad song, "Skeksis".

  4. Gitana Maldita

    La canción para Macri xD

    Patricio Flores

    Verónica Darrell mal

  5. ulfingvar1

    Almost every track on almost every album by Devin is at the very least good!!!! Often wonderful, not seldom brilliant. That is how good he is, and how far-reaching and diverse his talent is.

  6. Der Antikrist Seelen Mord

    awesome

  7. Dom Brazzale

    Man that symbol is cool. 

  8. Alessio Glorioso

    love BTBAM, love QOTSA, love DEVIN!

    ulfingvar1

    There is no one quite like him. Only one other artist matches the diversity of his talents, and that is the late, great Frank Zappa. But I actually prefer Devis, no matter how much I worship Frank.

  9. Diego H

    agree. how about karnivool?

  10. Gaston T. Avigliano

    "Gato" is my nickname in real life : D

  11. Masterblaster222

    Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
    Beware the bad people I'm a bad, bad man.

    Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
    Beware the bad people I'm a black cat man.

  12. Arkeves

    Maybe your taste in music just sucks. And so do your opinions in general.

  13. Derek Gilder

    *facepalm. I thought that's wat he said too but no, it's Cat people and fat people.

  14. Tentacle Erotica

    you like shitty music so i cant recommend a devy you would enjoy

  15. Nelson Naia

    "Cat people"
    Dumbass.
    Gato means cat

  16. psychostew911

    "Beware the black people, beware the black people"

    Devin?! You bigoted son of a bitch!!!!

    J4ymichaels

    psychostew911 - where in the lyrics does it say that.

    Please read below..

    So you and I, we've come to this place

    Now what ever happens know that I'm about honor...
    ...honor among thieves (amen)
    So you and I, we talk a little
    About the themes and all the thinking, then I die...
    ...a little
    whatever happened about honoring thy father, mother...

    ...honor me.

    Backtrack easy, everything's easy...tell me again?

    Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people
    Beware the bad people and I'm a bad man...

    So you and I, we talk a little...
    About the fate of all those days and then I DIE.
    WHATEVER HAPPENED TO YOUR WORDS ABOUT HONOR?!?

    ...HONOR AMONG MEN!!!

    Backtrack easy, everything's easy...tell me again?
    'Is it us or them, us or them?'
    Backtrack people, beware the vat people, prepare the cat people

    And never did I believe that I'd survive...this...
    Now what ever happens know that I'm about honor...

    Imperatore Gor

  17. Chris Beattie

    Really?

  18. John

    Devin Townsend >LEGEND!

  19. genericmetalname

    @JordanECMusic She's also in the song Heaven Send.

  20. David

    Devin is my all time favourite artist.

  21. JordanECMusic

    Ché Dorval is the female singing in this song based on an interview with Devin Townsend. Google it and you will find it

  22. JordanECMusic

    @bovinemarauder sorry that voice is not Anneke's.

  23. Michael Kane

    I love you Devin.

  24. mockingbirdred

    @alphaenemy
    godsmack are indeed rubbish...wholeheartedly agree..

  25. alphaenemy

    @Magyar126 lol, no...Sully's a hack. You should start talking to Devin Townsend fans to find better music than Godsmack. Seriously terrible artisan and musicianship in that band. Just awful.

  26. bowlofmash

    prog your face off

  27. CyanideSovereign

    @Radonwings I know that. But "ov" looks cooler. My lingo I'll do as I please with it.

  28. Artorias the Abysswalker

    EVERYTHING'S EVIL

  29. Pordontae

    i've got metal joints, beat me up for silver points

  30. Yony42

    @jeebles1 That's the best part!!!!!

  31. Moregoreable

    honestly going to see him at vagos but but but i don't like it too much *fearrrrr , might be something in my ears ...

  32. Charlie Clemence

    HONOR AMONG MEN!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. CyanideSovereign

    For those ov you unaware ov Wikipedia the other singer on Ki is Ché Aimee Dorval.

  34. eliten0Ob

    To those that do not know, Gato is spanish and means "cat", hence the repeated usage of the word "cat"

  35. Krzysztof Panasiuk

    I love it! This is my famost sound! Deep is my soul!

  36. shrederiffic2380

    @bovinemarauder False, it is Ché Aimee Dorval, a folk singer from Vancouver.

  37. T K

    @Bovinemarauder I don't think it's Anneke ( fun fact: pronounced An-nuh-kuh) but then again, can't be sure :p

    bass at 1:05 made me eargasm

  38. bovinemarauder

    @qotsa073 Ziltoid the Omnicient, Physicist. If you like crazy oldskool in yo face metal check out Strapping Young Lad. but I have to say, there is not a single song I know of Devin's that sucks, but I am unsure of your tastes as I have never heard this BtBam band.

  39. bovinemarauder

    @thorodinson89 I believe it is a girl called Anneke, not sure of the spelling, it is a European name. I think it is the chick that did the vocals in Addicted as well. Check out the remake of Hyperdrive from Ziltoid album. Don't take my word for it but I think it is the same chick! Peace

  40. alessandro panichi

    Seen him at Bloodstock few days ago,he was incredible.

  41. bovinemarauder

    @uchihunk Totally agree dude, I hope you have heard Ziltoid the Omniscient?

    I noticed Hyperdrive is redone on Addicted with a girl on vocals. It is awesome but the original is better in my opinion! Maybe it was because I heard it before the Addicted remake!
    Peace

  42. Robert Davis

    I really love the laidback approach at the beginning...and then it turns into something of a masterpiece indeed:)

  43. Daniel Daigle

    There is something just scary about this. Amazing.

  44. MIR

    Try Vampira or Funeral.

  45. SrDeMaFp

    Che Aimee.

  46. mattehISme

    this is awesome!!! its chill brutality!!!

  47. thorodinson89

    who is the chick singing with him at 1:43?

  48. stoutmeister91

    as long as you like DT in general and hate pop music then it's ok lol :D

  49. UROB0ROS

    Addicitve...

  50. Lord Crull

    Man this stuff is calm; it also gives me a feeling of loneliness.

  51. Patrick Rodgers

    I love this song, and how it builds up to almost-metal, but never goes over the edge.
    Can't wait for Addicted!

  52. woocifer

    I find Coast is one of my least favorite hahaha I think Ki is the best...but that's just me :)

  53. mattthedream

    vocal melody between 48-55 is class

  54. Engraved

    best song on album along with coast

  55. Dion Snoeijen

    Truly original refreshing music. Love it.

  56. Astral Tides

    I think this song has to do with his inner spiritual position. Like hes talking to something that isnt there. God perhaps. Repenting a little on the guilty feelings he has about some of his music. Lying about image, building and perfecting the fabric of his sounds that he knows his fans will be moved by yet again. Seems to be acknowledging guilt to me anyway.

  57. jburde

    BACKTRACK PEOPLE, EVERYTHING'S EVIL

    I LOOOOOVE this song, and the whole cd. I can not wait for the next 3 albums

  58. adrianvdb

    Thats progressive.

  59. dreamtheater1957

    there is one God.. and his name be Devin Townsend!

  60. iRaf

    such a good song :P can't wait to buy this.

  61. fernandbx
