John Frusciante - The Slaughter
Album: Shadows Collide With People (2004)

Shadows Collide with People is the fourth studio album by John Frusciante, released February 24, 2004. The album was written during the recording of By the Way, and is widely regarded as his most accessible work, featuring a mix of guitar-driven alternative rock, folk ballads, and electronica. Frusciante has stated that this was his most expensive album to date, costing around $150,000 to produce.

Flea plays a double bass on "The Slaughter", the closing track of the album. All tracks were written by John Frusciante and the majority of the vocal work is performed by him.

Frusciante also made acoustic and demo versions of these tracks available to fans through his official site, now only a blog, as an alternative to the highly produced sound of the record. A promo version of the album was also made, with the tracks "Omission", "Song to Sing When I'm Lonely", and "Failure 33 Object".

The album reached number 191 on the Billboard 200 and #11 on Heatseekers.

On the vinyl release of the album the words "One step away" were inscribed on side A, "There's riddles in the shadows" on side B, "A hint of sadness" on side C, and '"What they least suspect is coming next" on side D. All of these were hints to lyrics on John's next solo album The Will to Death.

Lyrics:

I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know her face a mile away

You'll be there in the slaughter
Freeing me when I'm cornered
Being arrested by the mind cops (oooh)
They're the only ones worth changing what you do for (oooh)
And I try to be in the line
I guide my fate (ooh)
And what it's good for there's no telling
It's blood
It's a flood

I'll know her face a mile away
She'll take me straight through that gate
I'll know her face a mile away
She'll take me straight through that gate

Living there in a flower (oooh)
You wouldn't have made it without her (oooh)
Though she seems to stay in one place (oooh)
She grows with your life (oooh)
So cry for time (oooh)
What's slow is fast at the same time (oooh)
It comes to life
And if it dies (oooh)
You'd never notice it cuz it
It slides as it climbs

I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know her face a mile away
I'll know my pain is a life away
I'll know my pain is a life away
I'll know my pain is a life away
I'll know my pain is a life away
