Shower in the dark day
Clean sparks driving down
Cool in the waterway
Where the baptized drown
Naked in the cold sun
Breathing life like fire
Thought I was the only one
But that was just a lie

Cause I heard it in the wind
And I saw it in the sky
And I thought it was the end
And I thought it was the 4th of July

Pale in the flare light
The scared light cracks & disappears
And leads the scorched ones here
And everywhere no one cares
The fire is spreading
And no one wants to speak about it
Down in the hole
Jesus tries to crack a smile
Beneath another shovel load

And I heard it in the wind
And I saw it in the sky
And I thought it was the end
And I thought it was the 4th of July

Now I'm in control
Now I'm in the fall out
Once asleep but now I stand
And I still remember
Your sweet everything
Light a Roman candle
And hold it in your hand

Cause I heard it in the wind
And I saw it in the sky
And I thought it was the end
And I thought it was the 4th of July

    General CommentEvanescence did a kick-ass job at this song. I heard the original song. Has anyone ever heard it? I know it's really hard to find.

    General CommentIf you have a connection rate that lets you stream songs, then you can hear it at mp3search.ru for free. Downloading the song, however, costs 10 cents ^_^. I have a really crappy recording of Ev's cover of this, does anyone know where I can find a better one? Or does none exist?

    General CommentOooh, nifty, apparently I have the tape of this album (soundgarden, not the Ev cover ^_^) from back when it was first released. I never noticed that before.

    General CommentReally!? How long are each of them? The one I have is 6:06. I can't find the one at mp3search.ru anymore... Was I imagining things? o.O

    My email's ladiablo@gmail.com if you want to send me that other one ^_^. It should accept any size of file.
