"Eyelid's Mouth" as written by and Chris J Cornell Matthew D Cameron....
In the eyelid’s mouth
Only hour is tone
When its crawls down
All dignity is one
Only the chilled one

Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?

Through the eyelid combs
Of the magic eye
I remember some
Only the rivers run
But never hide

Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the water run down?
Eyelid’s mouth
Who let the river run dry?

Eyelid’s mouth
Eyelid’s mouth
Eyelid’s mouth
Eyelid’s mouth

    General Commenti feel like it's about crying until you can't cry anymore. "Who let the water run down" and "who let the river run dry" are asking "who made the narrator cry like this"

    Just my thoughts. Awesome song! Sounds like it belongs on an earlier album

    My InterpretationI think it's about the sun or the heat or crying.. Crying makes the water run down, and the sun and the heat can make a river run dry. Is this what Matt Cameron thought about when he wrote this?
