Parole di Chris Cornell
Musica degli Audioslave
Dal loro debut album, l’eponimo “Audioslave”‎

Al giovane amico Cesare, che oltre alla grande cultura musicale ha pure un cervello più analitico di ‎uno scanner, è bastato un attimo per accorgersi che nel pur immenso database delle CCG/AWS ‎mancano ancora alcune canzoni degne di nota, come per esempio questa della band di Chris ‎Cornell, Tom Morello e soci.‎
Per il percorso sul genocidio dei nativi americani.‎

Grazie Cesare!‎

Cochise


‎ “Cochise was the last great American Indian chief to die free and absolutely unconquered. When ‎several members of his family were captured, tortured, and hanged by the U.S. Cavalry, Cochise ‎declared war on the entire Southwest and went on an unholy rampage, a warpath to end all ‎warpaths. He and his warriors drove out thousands of settlers. Cochise the avenger, fearless and ‎resolute, attacked everything in his path with an unbridled fury.” (Tom Morello)‎

Cochise (“Legno Ardente”, 1805-1874) è stato un capo degli Apache Chiricahua dell’attuale ‎regione di Sonora, tra New Mexico ed Arizona. A partire dal 1861 e per oltre 10 anni fu lo stratega ‎di un’estenuante guerra di guerriglia contro i coloni bianchi ed i soldati. Fu catturato nel 1871, poi ‎evase, combattè ancora e infine morì per cause naturali nel 1874 nella riserva in Arizona dove, ‎malato, aveva accettato di ritirarsi.‎
I've been watching
While you've been coughing
I've been drinking life
While you've been nauseous
And so I drink to health
While you kill yourself
And I've got just one thing
That I can offer

Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me, yeah

I'm not a martyr
I'm not a prophet
And I won't preach to you
But here's a caution
You better understand
That I won't hold your hand
But if it helps you mend
Then I won't stop it

Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me, yeah

Drown, if you want
And I'll see you at the bottom
Where you crawl
On my skin
And put the blame on me
So you don't feel a thing

Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me, yeah
