"Missing" as written by and Vangelis....
Here come the signs
Of early-warning misery
Here come the sounds
It looks like a river up to here
Underneath my head
Here comes the sight
I might just lose it?
Here comes the part
Where you ask me for my sympathy
I just might lose my head
Have you seen me
Can you hear me
Did you think you could win me over
I've been hard to hold
I've been hard to hold
And I'm missing
I made you get down
I made you get down on your hands and knees
But I made it up
I took you away from your misery
And you can't say it's?
Now here comes the past
It looks like what's in front of me
This may be the last
This may be the last thing you'll see of me
And it might be your key to rest
I've been hard to hold
And I'm missing

    General CommentMaybe it has to do with the narrator leaving or going insane because he knows it's better for his partner? Not sure i suppose..

    General CommentSome of these lyrics are wrong. This is what I hear.

    "Here come the signs
    Of early-warning misery
    Here come the sound
    It looks like a river under me
    Underneath my head"

    "Here comes the fight
    I might just lose it to tyranny
    Here comes the part
    Where you ask me for my sympathy
    I just might lose my head"

    "I made you get down
    I made you get down on your hands and knees
    But I made it up
    I took you away from your misery
    And you can't say it's my best"

    As for the meaning, Im gonna guess an corrupt goverment trying to take everything from an individual. Ultimately it sounds like a conflict between the indiviual and the goverment. Cornell was anti-goverment in alot of his lyrics and recognized that humanity repeats the same mistakes over and over again(ie An Unkind). The indiviual realizes the inevitable future of mankind(like a economic collapse and repeating history all over again) so he secludes himself from society(Im hard to hold, and im missing).
