Chris Cornell & Audioslave, "Show Me How To Live"



Here is an extraordinary song by Chris Cornell, the ex-vocalist of one of my favorite American Alternative/Hard Rock bands, Audioslave which was also consisted of ex-guitarists and drummer of Rage Against the Machine, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk. Chris Cornell was also the ex-vocalist of Soundgarden in the 90's. Much to the dismay of their growing worldwide fans, Audislave broke up in 2007. Since then, Chris Cornell has released two successful solo albums and continues touring the world, and Rage Against the Machine's three original members have reunited with the original vocalist of Rage, Zack de la Rocha.

'Show me how to live'

Song Lyrics


And with the early dawn
Moving right along
Couldn't buy an eye full of sleep
And in the aching nights under satellites
I was not received
Built with stolen parts
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 afterbirth
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
Ready to begin
Ready to begin
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
Show me how to live
Show me how to live
