Strapping Young Lad – “Wrong Side” Live at Download 2006

More extreme than extreme, Devin “HevyDevy” Townsend is.

This aggressive performance was held at Download Festival on 9 Jun 2006.

“Wrong side” is taken from Strapping Young Lad’s 5th studio album “New Black” (Century Media, 2005).

Straping Young Lad is in a hiatus now, but their great songs and performances are living. We can see the highest level combination of various extreme musical styles. If possible, I want the band to reform and create new music staff.

Lineup

  • Devin Townsend – Vocals, Guitars, Production
  • Jed Simon – Guitars, Backing vocals
  • Gene Hoglan – Drums, Percussion
  • Byron Stroud – Bass, Backing vocals
  • Will Campagna – Keyboards, Backing vocals

Lyrics

Woke up screaming on the wrong side of the head
Dreaming of demons who’d be better off…better off dead
Now I know I’m accountable fo the things I’ve said before
But I just can’t shut up and get out the door

SO LET’S SING VOLUMES FOR THE SOULS THAT AREN’T FOR SALE
INDEED LATELY THERE’S BEEN HELL HOUNDS ON MY TRAIL

Woke up screaming on the wrong side of the Zen
So get up,get out,get up,get out,get up,get out,get up and say the word!
Say the word and I’ll be gone
Say the word and I’ll be gone

Say the word and I’ll be gone forever and ever…(Get up, get out…)
Singing the god for the bad in the age of the fall
Now the enemy plays for the whole fucking world!

(Solo 1 – Dev/Solo 2 – Jed)

Sooner or later the nights with the satyr
Will bring back the memory
Leaving you money and time

Sweet locomotive with you as the motive
The beauty the agony mixes with honey and grime

Sly immitator the cats in the cradle the dogs in the stable will
Always remain on your mind

Sooner or later it comes to the table reminding them all
That the memory always was mine

Wake up running in the only way i can
This type of dependency turns a boy into a man

Now I know I’m accountable,
Now I know I’m responsible
NO PEACE FOR YOU, LITTLE MAN!
Say the word and I’ll be gone
Say the word and I’ll be gone

Say the word and I’ll be gone forever and ever…(Get up, get out…)
Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall
(Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall)
Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall
Now the enemy plays for the whole fucking world!
