Temple of the Dog – Times of Trouble



Temple of the Dog perustettiin Mother Love Bonen laulajan Andrew Woodin kunniaksi. Andrew Wood kuoli heroiinin yliannostukseen. Temple of the Dogin ainoalla levyllä useammatkin laulut käsittelevät Woodin poismenoa. Tämä Chris Cornellin kirjoittama laulu kertoo, että älkää tehkö kuin Wood vaan yrittäkää pysyä kasassa ja erossa aineista.

”When the spoon is hot
And the needle’s sharp
And you drift away
I can hear you say
That the world in black
Is upon your back
And your body shakes
So you ditch away
And you close the shades

Don’t try to do it
Don’t try to kill your time
You might do it
Then you can’t change your mind
You’ve got a hold on to your time
Till your break through these
Times of trouble

When you try to talk
And the words get hard
And they put you down
Don’t you stay
Don’t you ditch away

I saw you swinging
Swinging your mother’s sword
I know you’re playing but
Sometimes the rules get hard
But if somebody left you out on a ledge
If somebody pushed you over the edge
If somebody loved you and left you for dead
You got to hold on to your time till you break
Through these times of trouble”
