about

South African powerhouse rock cult Ruff Majik have released the animated video for their track Heart Like and Alligator. The track will be the last single taken from their critically acclaimed 2020 full length album The Devil’s Cattle.

"The lyrics for Heart Like An Alligator were written after a long and excruciating late night slog through the streets of Berlin, somewhere in 2019. Inspiration was taken from the classic Hunter S. Thompson novel, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, and the whole song was meant to emulate the feeling of dread and encroaching doom that goes hand in hand with a night of partying (too hard)." Says vocalist and guitarist Johni Holiday.

lyrics

LYRICS:

Burn the fuel, yeah let's pick up speed.
I got a butterfly knife, only cut what I need.
I got a headstone waitin', I ain't complaining.
I don't heed no warning.

I've got a suitcase full of sins.
I've got a hand that never wins.
I'm a bit wall eyed, but I'm doin' alright,
so pull the lever baby.
Spin, sin, spit.

Oh can't you hear Grace sing?
Don't you see those leather wings?
Follow the rabbit down the hole.
I'll always answer when you call.

Speedin' through the desert scene.
Don't you point your motherfuckin' gun at me.
I'll put the leeches on you,
and only God knows,
you better take care of me.

Oh Lord it's a war zone and I'm revvin' up to blow!
Bought the ticket, took the goddamn ride.
I took too much man.
Too much.
Too much.
Oh can't you hear Grace sing?
Don't you see those leather wings?
Follow the rabbit down the hole.
I'll always answer when you call.
Bless these black leather wings.
