"Your Soul Today" as written by and Chris Cornell....
Sleeping on a road that takes you home
Howling at the moon at midnight
I want the wrong that sets you right
I'll be praying at your bedside

How long I've been a soul in the gutter
I don't have a home or mother
Or anywhere to lay my head down

[Chorus:]
Can I visit your arms, can I visit your legs
I won't need your insults or praise
Won't burden your heart
Don't worry your head
If you don't want a soul mate
I'm your soul today

Hanging on a rope from a burning tree
Standing on a broken headstone
Bleeding from an old wound
Swimming in a fever
Waiting for a resurrection
I know it's a miracle I've lived this long
I don't want to give a wrong impression
But I've come so far

[Chorus]

Sleeping on a road that takes you home
Howling at the moon at midnight
I walked along and set you right
I'll be praying at your bedside

How long I've been a soul in the gutter

Can I visit your arms, can I visit your legs
I won't need your insults or praise
Won't burden your heart
Don't worry your head
If you don't want a soul mate

[Chorus]

Yeah
Soul today

    General CommentThe chorus says it all. The narrator just wants quick love, not a soul mate

    General CommentThis, and "You Know My Name" are easily the best tracks from Carry On. Runner-ups being "She'll Never Be Your Man" and "No Such Thing." The rest is.. eh.. but I really like this song.

    General CommentI agree; this is probably the best song on the album for me. Although I really like the melody on "Killing Birds" and "Arms Around Your Love" also.

    General Commentthis lyrics are great! what a lyrical idea! its like a soul singing to a person! definitely a highlight from an album that has still never truly grown on me like cornell's other albums did.
