Hands all Over

dal secondo album dei Soundgarden, Louder Than Love

Una canzone su tutto il male che l'umanità ha fatto e continua a fare a Madre Natura e non solo.

It's just sort of an environmental thing. Not strictly environmental, but mostly. It's basically about how we humans tend to screw up everything that's good enough as it is ... or everything that we're attracted to, we love to go and defile it.

Chris Cornell
Hands all over
The eastern border
You know what
I think we're falling
From composure

Hands all over
Western culture
Ruffling feathers
And turning eagles
Into vultures
Yeah, into vultures

Got my arms around
Baby brother
Put your hands away
You're gonna kill your mother
Gonna kill your mother
Kill your mother
And I love her, yeah
I love her

Hands all over
The coastal waters
The crew men thank her
Then lay down their
Oily blanket

Hands all over
The inland forest
In a striking motion
Trees fall down like
Dying soldiers
Yeah, dying soldiers

Got my arms around
Baby brother
Put your hands away
You're gonna kill your mother
Gonna kill your mother
Kill your mother
And I love her, yeah
I love her
I love her

Hands all over
The peasant's daughter
She's our bride, she'll
Never make it
Out alive

Hands all over
Words I utter
Change them into
What you want to
Like balls of clay
Put your hands away
