"Blind Dogs" as written by and Cornell/thayil....
Run away
Now it's Halloween
Shave your head and burn your sheets
Evil could be right next door
What do blind dogs believe?
I don't want to know

Following blind

Run away
Now it's Halloween
The safe bet is on your knees
Bow your head to the Trinity
That's what blind dogs believe
But I've heard that before

Following blind

Following blind
Following blind

Dead on my feet
While my nightmare walks
I fell asleep
Where the freeway talks
Suffer to swim and dying to sink
These things in the air
They will make you think
Make you think
Make you think

    General CommentI think the song is about blind faith. The "blind dogs" in this song represent people who disregard reason in favour of illogical personal beliefs. Although Cornell makes reference to religion ("The safe bet is on your knees, Bow your head to the Trinity"), I think the song applies to people in general, and that you should keep an open mind to different ideas.

    "Suffer to swim and dying to sink
    These things in the air
    They will make you think"

    This makes the song in my opinion. It really drives home the point of keeping an open mind.

    General Commentthis is my favourite soundgarden song, it was meant to be on superunknown but didn't make the cut, it was realeased on the basketball diaries soundtrack though, so it is available for our greatful ears.

    General Commentah those 'alive in the superunknown' days
    these guys were everything i love about rock music
    this one is a tight slow heavy groove, with such an incredible menacing gtr riff
    i love it really powerful stufff
    gives me chills everytime
    as far as lyrics go i believe Cornell expresses some anger,disbelief and confusion over this world
    and possibly having a go at religion too
    as he rarely forgets to do :)

    in all its just a great pure rock song
