Hounds Upon The Hare lyrics

  • Nov 20, 2009
  • by
It's almost impossible to list all of the bands (or contrabands) that Rozz Williams formed in his short lifetime & I hardly would know where to begin after he left the infamous Christian Death. Perhaps one of the most prolific musicians or artists that has ever graced the music scene, Williams's  was pioneer of many different musical genres & a great influence to many in the music world. It's hard to say how much more he could've contributed to the masses had he lived but I daresay his volumes of seemingly endless projects will remain in the hearts of music lovers for many years to come.

As a big fan of Rozz Williams & his endeavors, it's hard for me to write virtually anything about him without getting kind of misty eyed or choked up if you will.

Williams was born  Roger Alan Painter on November 6, 1963 & was raised in a strict Southern Baptist family. Supposedly he took the stage name of Rozz Williams from a gravestone he came across in a Pomona cemetery. Williams begin performing in bands around the age of 16& went on to form Christian Death in the summer of 1979, which is still his most recognized band even today. The name Christian Death was merely a play on words of the fashion designer Christian Dior. Needless to say, Rozz released a plethora of material under different project names after his departure from Christian Death. The name Shadow Project, was taken from the tests in Hiroshima following the nuclear bomb which left impressions or ‘shadows’, but no bodies.

Although it's difficult to cite all the material I love from the man, perhaps some of his most heartfelt work came from the project Shadow Project. Believe me when I say their music is as hard to classify as the day is long but there is one song which has drawn me back through the years that I couldn't help but share. Evidently, this was one of the last projects from Rozz before he took his life on 04/01/98. Even though it's more than 10 years since his passing, I still can't keep myself from tears when I listen to his work. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do. 

Why did you go? Why did you turn from me?
When all the world it seemed to sing?
Why oh why did you have to go?
Come away into my waiting arms.
Into a dream that you bring magically to life.
Outside the circle of relentless cold dead eyes.
Rise above their world of lies.
I hear whirl of wings about you,
while Lords in red float just above you.
Grasp the season of a million shining stars.
And recognize the gift that you are.
Don't let it all come crashing
down like hounds upon the hare.
Now we can walk humbly along the outer edge.
Far from a prelude to fatigued.
Awake the child lost in his slumber.
Introduce love to another.
How can a heart that's filled with love begin to cry?
When all the world seemed so right.
How can we let our love die like hounds upon the hare?
Don't let it all come crashing down like hounds upon the hare.
Don't push me down,
don't push me down like hounds upon the hare.
Come away into my waiting arms,
like hounds upon the hare.

Thnks Woo! I can't take too much credit here though as I did nothing more but briefly summarize the dude who I thought the world of when I was 16. He actually made some of the best music of his career however towards the end of his life which saddens me. I'd love to take credit for making a homage video to such an amazing dude but I regret that I couldn't. I'm glad you liked it though man. Thnks a million!

I've spent years trying to make others happy & not really focusing on what's most important in my own life. Having said that, my own health & security are paramount so now I'm more … more

About this topic


Shadow Project is a prog-rock band formed in the early 1990s with Rozz Williams and Eva O. The band's (self titled) first album included bassist Jill Emery and drummer Thomas Morgan.

William Faith and Stevyn Grey joined the line-up for the Dreams For The Dying tour and recording albums. They mixed a blend of different styles ranging from punk to metal to Roxy Music and David Bowie.

The band first began in 1987 in San Francisco. The band was named after a study of the effects of nuclear bombs in Hiroshima. The whole purpose behind its formation was for Rozz and Eva to make something for themselves. Rozz had realized that not much was happening in the United States when it came to the deathrock scene. No matter where it was he and Eva had gone to, be it Los Angeles or San Francisco, there was still nothing happening "In their eyes" so they had formed Shadow Project to create something for themselves.
