Hunger Strike
Temple of the Dog Lyrics


I don't mind stealin' bread from the mouths of decadents
But I can't feed on the powerless when my cup's already overfilled, yeah
But it's on the table, the fire's cookin'
And they're farmin' babies, while slaves are workin'
The blood is on the table and the mouths are chokin'
But I'm goin' hungry, yeah

I don't mind stealin' bread from the mouths of decadents
But I can't feed on the powerless when my cup's already overfilled, uh huh
But it's on the table, the fire's cookin'
And they're farmin' babies, while the slaves are all workin'
And it's on the table, their mouths are chokin'
But I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)

I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)

I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)

(Yeah, I don't mind stealin' bread) uh, I don't mind
(No, I don't mind stealin' bread)
I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)
I'm goin' hungry (goin' hungry)

Idon't mind
Stealing Bread
From the mouths of decadence
But I can't feed on the powerless
When my cup's already overfilled
But it's on the table,
The fire's cooking
And they're starving babies,
And the slaves are all working
Blood is on the table,
The mouths are choking
I'm going hungry
I don't mind
Stealing Bread
From the mouths of decadence
But I can't feed on the powerless
When my cup's already overfilled
But it's on the table,
The fire's cooking
And they're starving babies,
And the slaves are all working
And it's on the table,
The mouths are choking
I'm going hungry

:O it's 2021 and ur still listening to this? Hehe niceee

@Andy Appleton
Ahem. .. O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.
‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy:
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? It is nor hand nor foot
Nor arm nor face nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O be some other name.
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose.. where are you Appleton, We were supposed to be having dinner tonight. 🤦🏼‍♀️



Dumpy Goodness

it's actually pretty revolutionary, like Zeppelin and Sabbath DOING A SONG TOGETHER!

Like Metallica and Slayer doing a song together!


Like King Crimson and YES doing a song together!

Like Black Flag and FUGAZI doing a song together!

Like Pink Floyd and Iron Butterfly doing a song together!


Like the Beatles and The Monkees doing a song together!
