Misery Chain

This song is by Chris Cornell and appears on the deluxe edition of Higher Truth (2015).

Original video
Won't you take one link from this misery chain
Keep it to remind you of a long forgotten time or a place
So that you recognize its shape when it's near
Any time or place this misery chain should appear

Take the locks and shackles and melt all of it down
Shine a light upon every shadow, every acre of ground
The hidden corners on in overround
Anyway you feel this misery chain should be found

And when we're gone and it's all said and done
What will we leave?
The stories told, will they speak of us?
Well, God only knows what those word will be

And if I should fall from the top of the world
To the depths below, so far below where our believe could exist
Down further still will be the one who hides the key
And there's to try to put these misery chains on me

And when we're gone and it's all said and done
What will we leave?
The stories told, will they speak of us?
Well, God only knows what those word will be

Won't you take one link from this misery chain
Keep it to remind you of a long forgotten time or a place
So that you'll recognize it, till it's understood
And that every trace of this misery chain is gone for good
Till every trace of this misery chain is gone
