Show Me How To Live
Audioslave Lyrics


And with the early dawn
Moving right along
I couldn't buy and eyeful of sleep
And in the aching night under satellites
I was not received
Built with stolen parts
A telephone in my heart
Someone get me a priest
To put my mind to bed
This ringing in my head
Is this a cure or is this a disease

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

And in the after birth
On the quiet earth
Let the stains remind you
You thought you made a man
You better think again
Before my role defines you

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

And in your waiting hands
I will land
And roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand
Ready to begin

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

Show me how to live

Lyrics:

And with the early dawn
Moving right along, I couldn't buy an eye-full of sleep
And in the aching night under satellites, I was not received
Built with stolen parts, a telephone in my heart, someone get me a priest, to put my mind to bed
This ringing in my head, is this a cure or is this a disease?

Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live

And in the after birth, on the quiet earth, let the stains remind you, you thought you made a man
You better think again, before my role defines you

Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
And in your waiting hands, I will land, and roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand, ready to begin?
Ready to begin? ready to begin? ready to begin?

Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

@TC Swag agreed 👍 I mean they got good taste in music unless they’re just a casual fan , Chris Cornell’s fan base runs deep and he is worshipped by many who will never forget and never stop listening. I’m not singling out Chris as the be all and end all of this band but yeah they’re all great musicians and you do get people that hear one song on say a FIFA game and they are like “yeah I fucking love this band” and only know the one song , that’s another thing that pisses me off “I’m here after playing PES who’s with me?” Not me I’m here cause this band is amazing and I don’t need influence from Xbox or PlayStation to be here listening to it. Anyway I’m ranting now and I’ve had a few beers so I’ll shut up. But to anyone else here listening to this song .... you have great taste in music 👍
