singalong! black hole sun by soundgarden

I kind of hated this song when it first came out.  I thought the video was creepy and I felt uncomfortable with the notion of a "black hole sun" - it seemed vaguely evil to me, and evil things scared me.  Now I quite enjoy it, although I never knew the words until I looked them up for this post.  They seem kind of wannabe-riddled-with-angst-deep, but maybe I'm not giving them enough credit.  Still, it's fun to over-emotionally sing along to the chorus, don't you think?  Feel the pain that makes the sun into a big black hole.


BLACK HOLE SUN
by Soundgarden

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
'Neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes
In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you
Anymore

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just
Disappear
