"Black Hole Sun (Soundgarden cover)" as written by and Cornell....
In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
'neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes
In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you
Anymore

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun
Black hole sun

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just
Disappear

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Black hole sun
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun
Black hole sun

    General Commenti like copeland, but i think they completely butchered this song. They do a better job with Sting and the Police's 'Every Breath You Take'

    General CommentI thought this came across pretty well. Aaron's voice is very unique, but has a different, much more gritty edge in this cover, especially when mixed with the guitar-work.
