Soundgarden Mind Riot Lyrics

Soundgarden Mind Riot Lyrics


Soundgarden Mind Riot Lyrics - Chriss Cornell sedang berada di luar kota saat mendengar kabar bahwa sahabat karibnya, Adrew Wood (vokalis Mother Love Bone), dilarikan ke rumah sakit akibat overdosis heroin.

Segera saja Cornell melawat dan mudik ke Seattle, menjenguk Wood yang saat itu hanya bisa terbaring lemah di ranjang rumah sakit dengan bantuan alat ventilator.

Kedatangan Cornell sejatinya hanya untuk mengucapkan sepenggal kata perpisahan. Sebab tak lama setelahnya, alat ventilator tersebut dilepas dan Wood pergi dari dunia ini untuk selamanya.

Ya, banyak yang mengkaitkan lagu Mind Riot dari Soundgarden ini, itu tentang gimana perasaan Chriss Cornell yang pada saat itu mesti menyaksikan langsung detik demi detik sahabatnya menghadapi sakaratul maut. 

Soundgarden Mind Riot Lyrics


I was slipping through the cracks of a stolen jewel
I was tightrope walking in two ton shoes
Now somebody is talking about a third world war
And the police said this was normal control (I've been caught in a mind riot)

Candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's best friend died
And I've been caught in a mind riot (mind riot)

I was crying from my eye teeth and bleeding from my soul
And I sharpened my wits on a dead man's skull
I built an elevator from his bones
Had climb to the top floor just to stamp out the coals (I've been caught in a mind riot)

Candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within

Candle's burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within
I'm luck's last match struck
In the pouring down wind, pouring down wind
