"Voodoo", written by lead singer Sully Erna, is a single by the band Godsmack from their self-titled album Godsmack. The song "Voodoo" was best known for its use in the MTV television program Fear.

Music videoEdit

The video, directed by Dean Karr, shows witches performing a ritual with swords. The band is shown throughout the video playing in a corn field. A naked gorgon is shown dancing which is also part of the ritual. Zombies come out of a lake and wander through the woods. The video features Laurie Cabot and members of her coven at that time.

The zombies come from the inspiration of the song. At the House Of Blues, vocalist Sully Erna stated that he got the idea for the song from the film The Serpent and the Rainbow

The song was also used by WWE wrestler Batista during his time in the former WWE the developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) from 2000-2002.

LyricsEdit

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

Candles raised by desire,
why I'm so far away.
No more meaning to my life,
No more reason to stay.

Freezing, feeling,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...

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

Hazing clouds rain on my head,
Empty thoughts fill my ears.
Find my shade by the moonlight,
why my thoughts aren't so clear.

Demons dreaming,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...

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

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

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

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

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo,
voodoo, voodoo, voodoo.

So far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
