​Mind Riot

This song is by Soundgarden and appears on the album Badmotorfinger (1991).

I was slipping through the cracks of a stolen jewel
I was tightrope walking in two ton shoes
And now somebody's talking a third world war
(I've been caught in a mind riot)
And the police said this is normal control
(I've been caught in a mind riot)
And the candles burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot
Mind riot
I was crying from my eyeteeth and bleeding from my soul
And I sharpened my wits on a dead man's skull
I built an elevator from his bones
(I've been caught in a mind riot)
And I climbed to the top floor to stamp out the coals
(I've been caught in a mind riot)
Candles burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot
I'm tied within
Candles burning yesterday
Like somebodies best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot
I'm tied within
My luck's last match struck
In the pouring down wind
Pouring down wind
Pouring down wind
Mind riot
Mind riot
Mind riot
Mind riot
