"Stolen Prayer" as written by Chris Cornell and Vincent Furnier....
I walk these streets alone, shadows hide my face
My sins are etched in stone, never to erase
My fears unshakeable, if I could believe
I'd trade these wings of gold, for what I really need
I fought the fires of love, burned them to my soul
Scarred from the flames of hope, my mask is made of stone
I'm not invincible, but I want to believe
That you're convinceable, I pray that you will be

Take the word and pass it on, I'm tired of preaching
Take the angel from the thorns, untie the wings of gold
Until I'm in the right of way
All my words are spoken, all my words are spoken
All my words are spoken
In a stolen prayer

I dreamed of different times, and tried to find my way
Ooooh all the darkest lies, cloud my world today
I'm not unbreakable, although I might pretend
It's not unthinkable that I could feel again

Take the word and pass it on, I'm tired of preaching.
Take the angel from the thorns, Untie these golden wings
Until I'm in the right of way
All my words are spoken
All my words are spoken
All my words are spoken
In a stolen prayer
In a stolen prayer

    General Commentgreat lyrics, one of his best. i don't really like the versions i have found by him or cooper (he gave this song to Alice Cooper - why???) but its a pretty simple vocal pattern and it can be played over acoustic guitar easily. love it
