"Blood on the Valley Floor" as written by and Kim A Thayil Chris J Cornell....
All turns around
All together we stumbled
In there, a million pounds
Everyone with a raise around

And the smoke lies
On the valley floor
And the blood dries
While we spill some more

Once we were at the end
The end of a long road
Living to the skies
All the other remained crowns

And the smoke lies
On the valley floor
And the blood dries

In the summer these days
Children are alone
All alone with the point

Hey
Hey
Hey
Hey

Mountains are around
All together we tumbled down

And the smoke lies
On the valley floor
And the blood dries
While we spill

    General CommentThis song is about being an incredibly talented person in stasis. It's maybe about Soundgarden disbanding at the height of their fame. They've reached "the end of a long road" to meet "the crowds." But now the protagonist is stuck in the valley, stumbling aimlessly, surrounded by unclimbable mountains.

    The lyrics above are very wrong.

    General CommentI feel like this song is about a slump. What kind of slump is debatable, but its definitely a slump

    General CommentThis song harkens back to Superunknown, Black Sabbath inspired, heavy metal grunge. Very dark and intense song that gives me images of the aftermath of war.
