"Revelations" (2006)




Revelations Lyrics – audioslave

You know what to do, you know what I did
Since you know everything just clue me in
I am such a wreck, I am such a mess
I know what I know, why don't you fill in the rest?
I will bring you down, I will make it bad
While you're feelin' proud, why don't you help me?

Such a shame that I wouldn't know by now
Your revelations
Cut me in, I don't wanna live without
Your revelations, revelations

You know what to say, you know what I said
You know what I dream sleeping in my bed
You hold all the keys, you know all the roads
Why don't you guide me in, if I'm such a lost soul?
I'm spinnin' 'round, I will make you ill
Since I'm so broken down, why don't you fix me?

Such a shame that I wouldn't know by now (I wouldn't know by now)
Your revelations
Cut me in, I don't wanna live without (Don't wanna live without)
Your revelations

I am haunted when I am sleeping
Try to give without receiving
It's in the applebite (It's in the applebite)
It's in the days and nights (It's in the days and nights)
In the afterlife we'll reap

Such a shame that I wouldn't know by now (I wouldn't know by now)
Your revelations
Cut me in, I don't wanna live without (Don't wanna live without)
Your revelations
Such a shame, such a shame that I wouldn't know by now
Cut me in, I don't wanna live without (Don't wanna live without)
Your revelations
Revelations

One And The Same Lyrics – audioslave

Well they don't hate you, you know they love you
But they're gonna come kill you
They don't mean you any harm
It's just what they do
Could be your mother
Could be your father
Or your best friend in the world

But just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You wear a mask with a target
Keep your enemies closer
You fall in love from a great height, now the easy part's over
Choose your battles, not your soldiers
You're never sure of their colors

But just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same
Just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Just like blood and rain, love and pain are one and the same (One and the same)
Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Sound Of A Gun Lyrics – audioslave

In the here and the now I'll wait down among the young and the old
With the moon and the ground I play with my children in my home
This is for the daughters and sons of forgotten ones learning how to stand
This is for the innocent unknowns buried in the sand

All running from a sound of a gun
Running from the sound of a gun 'til you're weary
Running from the sound of a gun
Running from the sound of a gun

From the crack in the blackness I'll wake, it's getting closer every night
In my city the playground is a battleground between the wrong and the right
I could run free as a child I was safe and wild, naked, and unarmed
Now I'm gone and safe in my home but some will never stop

Running from the sound of a gun
Running from the sound of a gun 'til they're weary
Running from the sound of a gun
Running from the sound of a gun

The open mouth of the city swallowed up the town
On that same old concrete that I still walk down
And it seemed they put a shine on this place when I was young
Well maybe I just don't see it now

Running from the sound of a gun
Running from the sound of a gun 'til I'm weary
Running from the sound of a gun
Running from the sound of a gun
Hey!

I'm running from the sound of a gun
I'm running from the sound of a gun
I'm running from the sound of a gun
I'm running from, running from the sound of a gun

Until We Fall Lyrics – audioslave

I walk the streets where I regret, ah-ah-ah
I stood along and watched myself fall apart
And said the voices in my head, ah-ah-ah
Slipped through the chain link of a broken heart

And when I'm tired of feeling black
Spread the wings upon your back
Take us high above it all
Stroke your feathers 'til we fall back down again, ah-ah-ah

But everything that sounded good, ah-ah-ah
I understand that I'll be misunderstood

And when I'm tired of feeling black
Spread the wings upon your back
Take us high above it all
Stroke your feathers 'til we fall
Until we fall, until we fall back down again
Yeah, back down again

What do you feel before you think?
What do you see before you blink?
Who do you battle in your dreams?
Who strokes your feathers 'til you scream?

And when I'm tired of feeling black
Spread the wings upon your back
Take us high above it all
And stroke your feathers 'til we fall
Until we fall, until we fall back down again
Yeah, back down again

Original Fire Lyrics – audioslave

The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on

With a pen in one hand taking us and drugged on kerosene
'84 and 5 would find us something to believe
Right or wrong with dirty hands on wires
Singing songs in dischord choirs
Screaming in braille no temptress prize
Could ever yield anything so real

The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on

Golden soldiers born much older than they'll ever live to be
Diving into a sea of hands in a long forgotten city
Here the rain falls ever after
The swinging vines hang dead in rafters
Blood rush to your head induces laughter endlessly

The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and long gone
But the riot inside moves on

Can't explain that it was somethin' to see
Can't contain so somethin' ever real
Ever real
Hey!

Can't explain it was somethin' to see
Can't contain so somethin' ever real
Ever real

The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on
The original fire has died and gone
But the riot inside moves on

Broken City Lyrics – audioslave

My city sleeps by the side of a freeway, the city scraps
And winter time she wore a yellow coat
Now there's nothin' on her back
If a building falls you wouldn't care to notice unless you were in it
Then no one cares about climbin' stairs, nothin' at the top no more

Outside trippin' in the broken city
Outside trippin' in the broken city, I watch a building crack
Outside trippin' in the broken city
Outside kickin' in the broken city, there's nothin' wrong with that
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

Now the snow falls down like it's fallin' on an ocean
Dead and empty by the railroad tracks where they used to go and come
Now they don't come back
You can heal the rust, goin' up the throughways
Down the alleys where they stole this town from the frontier
I can see 'em tryin' to steal it back

Outside trippin' in the broken city (Outside trippin' in the broken city)
Outside trippin' in the broken city, I watch a building crack
Outside kickin' in the broken city (Outside trippin' in the broken city)
Outside trippin' in the broken city, there's nothin' wrong with that
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

Now the sun won't shine on this part of the map
Anymore
When it's cold outside I see it hide behind the smokestacks
No thin roses, no goldrush, no miner, no revolution they'd hire
And the shipyard is a graveyard, no one will be trying to find him

Outside trippin' in the broken city (Outside trippin' in the broken city)
Outside kickin' in the broken city, I watch a building crack
Outside trippin' in the broken city (Outside trippin' in the broken city)
Outside kickin' in the broken city, there's nothin' wrong with that
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo (There's nothin' wrong with that)
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo do (Outside trippin' in the broken city)
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

Somedays Lyrics – audioslave

Somedays, somedays, somedays just ain't so easy

Wake up, look around just before your feet hit the ground
Where they make the oil and street, is where you stand and where you sleep
Black and whites along the lights, plain clothes and Miranda Rights
At the right place but in the wrong life, somedays just ain't so easy

Somedays, somedays, somedays (Somedays) just ain't so easy
Somedays, somedays, somedays (Somedays), somedays (Somedays)
Just ain't so easy

It's not the fault of anyone as we revolve around the sun
We sleep beneath the same sky but we all see it through different eyes
So if you go or if you stay, standin' still or if you walk away
If you bend or if you break somedays just ain't so easy

Somedays, somedays, somedays (Somedays) just ain't so easy
Somedays, somedays, somedays (Somedays), somedays (Somedays)
Just ain't so easy, they just ain't so easy
Oh yeah

Nobody say it's so easy, yeah
I don't care for somedays

Someone may have done you right or done you wrong
Or kept it down from the day you were born
There's no need to apologize for the riot in your eyes
Somedays just ain't so easy
Hey! Hey! Hey!

Somedays, somedays, somedays (Somedays) just ain't so easy
Somedays, somedays, somedays (Somedays), somedays (Somedays)
Just ain't so easy

Shape Of Things To Come Lyrics – audioslave

Well it's late in the hour and a few more grains of sand will fall.
On the colorful flowers grown upon the dust and moss.
Now I feel the worst is near,
I hold them close and count their years.
And pray a ray of light appears
To shine down on us here

Breakdown in the shape of things to come
But I'm moving on like a soldier.
And I say now when all is said and done:
It's not ours to break, the shape of things to come.

There's a crack in the clouds, but only for a moment now
Like an owl looking out, the blue sky spies the roads we will go down.
I wonder what they hold for us? I hold my family to my breast,
I feel the worst and hope the best will come to see us blessed.

Breakdown in the shape of things to come
But I'm moving on like a soldier.
And I say now when all is said and done:
It's not ours to break, the shape of things to come.
Hey! Hey!

Give me one more try in what I'll change.
I won't deny the thought is strange.
I've done my best and now will lay no blame myself.

Breakdown in the shape of things to come
But I'm moving on like a soldier.
And I say now when all is said and done:
It's not ours to break, the shape of things to come.

The shape of things to come.
The shape of things to come.

Jewel Of The Summertime Lyrics – audioslave

When I was 18 I didn't know pain when the sun was high
Burnt face, shadow's erased and I knew I'd be alright
Left that behind me, uh-huh
Somethin' blinded me, uh-huh
You’re reminding me, uh-huh
Of a better space and time, miles away

The jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summer-time
A jewel of the summertime
A jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summer-time

When I turned 21 I saw the sun pulling out of sight
All that I met were dark silhouette's stumbling in the night
Then we collided, uh-huh
And I finally, uh-huh
Got a light on me, uh-huh
Now I'm bathing in the bright ultraviolet rays

Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summer-time
A jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summer-time
Time, time

I left that behind me, uh-huh
But somethin' blinded me, uh-huh
You're reminding me, uh-huh
Of a better space and time, miles away

Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summertime
A jewel of the summer-time
A jewel of the summertime
A jewel of the summertime
A jewel of the summer-time
A jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summertime
A jewel of the summer-time
Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summertime
Jewel of the summer-time

Wide Awake Lyrics – audioslave

You can a look a hurricane right in the eye.
1200 people dead or left to die.
Follow the leaders, were it an eye for an eye we'd all be blind.
Deaf or murdered, and this I'm sure in this uncertain time.

So come pull the sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen today.
I found you guilty of a crime, of sleeping at a time
When you should have been wide awake.

Down on the road the world is floating by.
The poor and undefended left behind.
While you're somewhere trading lives for oil,
As if the whole world were blind, hey.

So come pull the sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen today.
I found you guilty of a crime of sleeping at a time
When you should have been wide awake.

Come pull the sheet over my eyes
So I can sleep tonight
Despite what I've seen today
I found you guilty of a crime of sleeping at a time
When you should have been wide awake
Wide awake! Wide awake! Wide awake! Wide awake!

Nothing Left To Say But Goodbye Lyrics – audioslave

Just like a rescue of a stray dog in the rain I was
Hungry when you found me
And you could tell by my tail and my rib cage what was
Once around me

I've been chased by a rain cloud
I was lost and nearly drowned and kicked around
But now I'm found and I won't run away

Bless your heart you gave me a home and a new start
And I will leave you never
Sleep at your feet and stay guard at your front door
I will keep things together

I've been chased by a rain cloud
I was lost and nearly drowned and kicked around
But now I'm found and I won't run away

I killed myself, threw away my mental health but nobody was blinking an eye
Backyard, basement, falling on the pavement
Nothing Left to Say But Goodbye
Nothing Left to Say But Goodbye

It's true I ran away before but be sure
I am no tail-chaser
I know a good thing when it throws me a bone
I'm your best friend forever

I've been chased by a rain cloud
I was lost and nearly drowned and kicked around
But now I'm found and I won't run away

Moth Lyrics – audioslave

Thought I was different and it seems I'm just the same
As a game I put my hand over the flame
I thought I was smarter as I flew into the sun
But it turned out the way it does with everyone

Oh, oh
I don't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I don't fly around your fire anymore

I love the heat I love the things that I forgot
I love the strings that tie me down and cut me off
I was a king, I was a moth with painted wings made of cloth
When did the flame burn so high and get so hot?

Oh, oh
I don't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I don't fly around, fly around
Fly around

I don't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I won't fly around, fly around

I won't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I don't fly around, fly around
Oh
Fly around, oh

"Out Of Exile" (2005)




Your Time Has Come Lyrics – audioslave

Now one fell asleep in the street and he never woke up
And now one died in pieces in his bed with a mouth full of bones
And one threatened me long ago, I saw him melt in the bright light of day
And one laid to rest in a field under stories and clones

I've been wandering sideways
I've stared straight into the sun
Still I don't know why you're dying
Long before your time has come
Your time has come

Now one took some bullets in the chest in a deal gone wrong
And one got a little too depressed and he went and jumped the gun
One got shot right in the face and he somehow survived
But he doesn't know my name or who I am and I'm not surprised

I've been wandering sideways
I've stared straight into the sun
Still I don't know why you're dying
Long before your time has come

I've been wandering sideways
I've stared straight into the sun
Still I don't know why you're dying
Long before your time has come

I've seen 50,000 names all engraved on a stone
Most of them met an early grave years before I was born.
All of them left brothers and sisters and mothers behind
Most of their family and friends are still alive and doing time.

I've been wandering sideways
I've stared straight into the sun
And I don't know why you're dying
Long before your time has come

I've been wandering sideways
I've stared straight into the sun
And I don't know why you're dying
Long before your time has come
Long before your time has come
Long before your time has come
And your time has come
