Rock Bottom
by UFO

Album: Phenomenon (1974)
  • Seventeen a nature's queen, know what I mean
    Twenty one, a long one
    And you can see the numbers run
    Now you look so peaceful, lyin' there asleep
    With the wings of God above you
    Before the spirits meet

    Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom
    Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom

    Shadow work is closin' in above the lamps in your street
    Lucifer goes walkin' down free to meet
    Minutes pass so slowly by the, hands on your clock
    Heaven don't, just no way way
    You can knock?

    Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom
    Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom

    With all darkness closin' in
    Will the light reveal your soul
    Yes one sweet kiss on your clay cold lips
    I'll know sleep you'll never know
    Where do we go, where do we go
    Where do we go from here

    Seventeen a nature's queen, know what I mean
    Twenty one, a long one, you can see the numbers run
    Now you look so peaceful, lyin' there asleep
    With the wings of God above you
    Before the spirits meet

    Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom
    Rock bottom, rock bottom, rock bottom Writer/s: MICHAEL SCHENKER, PHILLIP JOHN MOGG

  • Sim from Cleveland RocksProbably the heaviest song ever recorded by UFO. Schenker just goes off on this one. Another skipped band that truly belongs in The Rock Hall.
  • Jennifer from San Antonio, TxLove Love Love this song. It's kind of scary and true at the same time. No only is the lyrically genius, but the solo's are mind blowing. Love Rocking out to this. I am glad that I had parents who grew up with this kind of music, which in turn helped distinguish between s--t music (Modern Day) and great music, Classic Rock!!
  • Carole from Sacramento, CaSurely Rock Bottom is in the Top 10 all time best rock songs ever. Schenker is not much less then a teutonic god with his guitar in hand.
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaOne of the great anthems of 70's hard rock.
