It’s Over Now

Leave a comment

In your youth
You fled the noose
The Pretty Noose
That sought your youth

But years went on
You sang your song
We loved your song
And cheered you on

The noose came calling
While darkness falling
Your body falling
As fans were calling

All quiet now
So take a bow
Your final bow
It’s over now

Embrace the Darkness

Embrace the darkness
It ate at your soul
Let it give you rest
And fill that gaping hole

The dark will swallow the pain
Lift you from this fallen world
Though we’ll never be the same
Fly away with black wings furled

Your work here is complete
Thank you for enduring torment
To sign songs so bitter sweet
Rage and pain for our enjoyment

We drank from your sour cup
Tasting the anger and sorrow
We savored every last drop
Thirsty we’ll have to continue tomorrow

But you can rest at last
Long deserved and well earned
Finally pain, anger and depression passed
Embrace the dark for which you yearned

Fell on Black Days by Soundgarden (Chris Cornell)

The Man was a gifted poet, musician, artist

Fell on Black Days

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time
‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured, I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled, I’ve put you down
I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night

I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind, sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don’t mind a change

Say hello to Heaven Chris
It’s painful how much you’ll be missed

My heart breaks to think you’re gone
That you’ll never write another song

My ears will ever long to hear your voice
And poetic words with eloquent choice

Sometimes low and deep, stirring the soul
To loud and scratchy raising the pulse

Your pain spoke to me and helped me cope
Channeled my rage to avoid the rope

I’m sorry the rope found you my friend
Suppose all succumb to its beckon in the end

Thank you for sharing your pain and torment
Your art will endure, leave a lasting imprint

I will mourn you ahead in some black days
Embrace the black hole sun’s chilling warm rays

Though too short you are great among men
A true artist to the bitter sweet end
