Audioslave / I think this song is about Cornell's speculations

/ Shape of Things To Come / about the future for him and his family. Note the

/ Revelations / family that he mentions in most of his lyrics on

/__________________________/ Revelations. On the dvd that follow with the cd, he says

that now that he has become a father, he now writes his

lyrics from the view of his family and not himself as a single person anymore, sweet isn't it?

 

Intro:

The distorted guitar (in drop-d tuning of course) is overdubed here

" When it's late in the hour

And a few more grains of sand will fall

On the colourful flowers

Grown upon the dust and moss

Now I fear the worst is near

I hold them close and count their years

I pray a ray of light appears

To shine down on us here "

similar to 1st Verse

 

" There's a crack in the clouds

But only for a moment now

Like an eye 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 fear the worst and hope the best

Will come to see us blessed "

(Morello uses a harmoniser that produces random notes (I think),
