Voodoo Lyrics

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.

Candles raise my desire,
Why I'm so far away.
No more meaning to my life,
No more reason to...

    Clearly it's very similar to heroin and addiction, but Godsmack weren't known as heroin users in fact I've read many things speaking against drugs as a whole from them. The band name Godsmack is undoubtedly named after the Alice in Chains track. Though that name was no doubt a reference to heroin, something Layne Staley had major struggles with. ThE voodoo song could very well be reference to AiC and in particular Staley himself or it could be reference to the 90s rock scene and heroin as a whole, but most likely the track really has to do with voodoo or some spiritual reference. I know the singer had some spiritual stuff going on. I was never much of a fan of Godsmack, but I do find Alice in Chains to be one of my favorites.

    First of all their Name came from a Alice In Chains song called 'Godsmack' that story about the cold sore was BS!! In a interview they finally admitted that the Godsmack name came from the Alice In Chains song title Godsmack

    If it is about slamming a drug he's describing a large shot of meth not heroin.

    Of course its about heroin. The name of the band even gives it away. Smack is heroin. It becomes your god. Thus, GOD SMACK. Voo Doo is a spell. Something that has a hold on a person. Everyone else can candycoat it any way they want but the fact is its all about the drug. and the lyrics 'never going back again is about the intention of never doing it again, but they do. because it has such a hold. My son is an addict and this song is SO obvious. Anyone who says otherwise, is totally naive. We live this shit everyday. I pray my son gets through this.

    He may have said for the public it was about the movie but, everything in this song has to do with a stage of shooting heroine. I don't think he would have just came out and said it for the public exspecially if he was still dealing with it in so e way at the time. Take it from a former needle junkie.

    Listen as a former addict my self I get what he's saying, further more as some one who lives in the same area that he got famous in Manchester New Hampshire(he lives in either Pelham NH or Salem NH I can't remember but he drinks in Manchester all the time) he isn't origianaly from here he is from a town called Laurence Mass. Which is a border town and Laurence just happens to be the little piece of trash town where every one from Manchester goes to get their heroin sully was just smart enough to get out of dodge so if you know any thing about locations in the area you would know with out any sought what the song means. Dope can get at any one that's why they call it dancing with the devil.

    My interpretation is heroin addiction. I got snake bites on my arms as the source....

    This interpretation is from LL and he said this :
    Absolutely about heroin. There really isn't any other logical interpretation and given the fact that I now know that they changed the lyrics, I'm 100% positive.

    And this is my interpretation and here’s what I said:
    The song is about shooting up heroin and everyone in his life leaving him because he did heroin and about being depressed.

    The line “When I feel the snake bite into my veins” that means when he’s shooting up heroin.

    The line” And I don’t remember why I came” means he probably overdosed and didn’t remember anything.


    The line “I’m coming back again” probably means he’s not going to do drugs anymore.


    The lines “No more meaning to my life” “No more reason to stay” means he’s feeling depressed.

    To me that’s what the song means because I’ve listened to the song since I was very young and the more I listen to it the more I begin to understand what it means.

    Watch the faceless interview on YouTube he talks about all the times he overdosed on heroin, these ppl who never experienced this drug will never understand the song period.

    Dont be a fool if u had half a brain you would know its about heroin. Yes sully is a devout wiccan, probably like the serpent and the rainbow as its an obviously badass movie but this is about struggles with addiction "never did i want to be here again". I hope they didnt change the lyrics because the i appreciate the metaphors, but no voodoo is not "slang" for heroin that is just nonsense. My source? Ex-junkie

    LOL first of all a lot of ppl posting dont know any band history of Godsmack. 1. the previous drummers name was Tommy Stewart. 2. The original guitarist wasn't with the band when they started getting famous. As for Godsmacks name the cold sore is the true story (you think they would make up a story like that?)yes AIC was an influence for sully. And lastly the song is about heroin addiction plain and simple

    I think you're supposed to use your own experiences to get what you want out of the song (like the addiction thing)
