"'Truth is strange," you know, "stranger than fiction' - besides being more to the point" - Edgar Allan Poe

(Exploder- Audioslave)


I met a man locked away
for things he hadn't done
innocence on a ball and chain
he'll never feel the sun
again on his face
roses in his hands
but when he smiled at me
i could understand

if you're free you'll never see the walls
if you're head is clear you'll never freefall
if you're right you never fear the wrong
if you're head is high you never fear at all

there was a daughter of a man
who took his life too young
she swore she'd never do those things
then did just what he'd done
and a boy whose gone insane
heard voices in his head
no one knows what they say
now his mothers dead

if you're free you'll never see the walls
if you're head is clear you'll never freefall
if you're right you never fear the wrong
if you're head is high you never fear at all

there was a man who had a face
it looked a lot like me
i saw him in the mirror and i followed him in the street
then when he turned away i shot him in the head
then i came to realize i had killed myself

if you're free you'll never see the walls
if you're head is clear you'll never freefall
if you're right you never fear the wrong
if you're head is high you never fear


[Nothing like listing to audioslave during office hours :) ]
