Audioslave – Like a Stone Lyrics 5 years ago
I read lots of the postings on here and there are very good points.

But i am surprised no one has mentioned the Tibetan Book of The Dead.
I initially thought the Bible as there are references to lines in the bible.
Except that religions that go against the Christian and Catholic bible use same references and change a word or two to change the meaning. The bible is about eternal life not death.

That's why if you grow up reading the bible and loose your way and read another bible you can easily feel like this.

"I was lost in the pages
Of a book full of death"

Also: The bible says there is only one god, its the Devils bible, the Greek Mythology and many other that say there is more than one God.

"To the gods and the angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to heaven"

No one who is reading a bible would reference themselves as a pagan. The Gods and the angels can easily be a reference to the devil and the fallen angels. And anyone that does not agree with the bible will seek one that allows for ones behavior. With out consequences.

In the book of the dead it states how dreams will manifest themselves.
You see references of dreams in the bible that tell of future events.

And on I read
Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret
Of all the things I've done
For all that I've blessed
And all that I've wronged
In dreams until my death
I will wander on

This sounds to me like he is trying to reach Karma or an enlightened state, analyzing his life.

I came to this because of this line:
"For all that I've blessed"
Sounds like a shaman a guru.

The songs sounded to me like he is trying to get close to God. But the more i read it, heard it and watched the video the more i think there is a lot more to it, that i am no were near qualified to comment on.

Great voice though and awesome lyrics that make you think. Just what lyrics are suppose to do.
