We see the vipers of distance
Crawl into our lives everyday
Breeding our Edens of hatred
Pathetically stupid and unkind
We couldn't look a saint in the eyes

On the storm
It's time to go
On the storm
It's time to go

Marching in lines of contradiction
Forgetting the history we make
Loving our hangmen as the
Penultimate joke
We lack the Moses...to look
A saint in the eye

    General Commentnow i know all u fundamentalists might get all excited cas this song mentions saints, and moses and eden , but please hold off on the ezekiel 16:22 bullshit.....
    this songs title is cleven because it reflects 'mankind'
    with 'unkind' it is expressing our easily humans do stupid things and don't treat eachother with respect
    "breeding our Edens of Hatred, Pathetically stupid and unkind" its unfair to put our beliefs on others that line says
    he says if their was a judgement(which i am pretty sure he doubts) we would not make the cut, 'we leack the moses to look the saints in the eyes'

    General Commentgeezer... that was absolutely ridiculous. you don't have attention enough? "if not maybe the worst rock song ever from an amazing band" fuck off please. Exageration to the max, i agree the lyrics are not really smart but is dumb and lame qualifying this song ad "the worst song EVA!, HO MY GAWD!" ppfff. So tipical ofthe users of this site.

    anyway, The song has a great rythm and i really like the chorus, i think this song talk about the masks we use to walk daily in life and not get in in problems even when we know it's a total fake.

    General CommentAgreed benedict, I also believe this is soundgardens shittiest song, if not maybe the worst rock song ever from an amazing band. I mean what the fuck, any song on any one of their albums would absolutely anihalate this piece of shit.
    A fucking disgrace
    Was this song the reason why soundgarden disbanded?
