The Worm

Album: Out Of Exile (2005)
  • Was a time early in life
    When I hated everything
    Born too young, top of my lungs
    Sitting on the bottom rung
    Took advice from the wrong shoulder
    Took a lot of everything
    I've decided to make it alright with my

    Halo, I'm complete
    Halo, with me underneath
    Halo, I'm reborn
    I can do no wrong

    Black and blue, suffering fools
    By the age of seventeen
    Low and high, just one more time
    Felt like an eternity
    Right or wrong, never too strong
    Friends became my enemies
    God forsaken but never too late with my

    Halo, I'm complete
    Halo, with me underneath
    Halo, I'm reborn
    I can do no wrong

    Oh oh
    You'll never change me
    You'll never change me (you'll stay the same)
    Halo, I'm complete
    Halo, with me underneath
    Halo, I'm reborn
    How can you know?
    Halo, I'm complete
    Halo, with me underneath
    Halo, I'm reborn
    I can do no wrong Writer/s: TIMOTHY COMMERFORD, CHRIS CORNELL, TOM MORELLO, BRAD WILK

  • Adrian from Brookings, Sd"Low and high" is a recurring theme in Chris Cornell's lyrics. A perfect general description of life I suppose. He was low for most of his life, but finding sobriety and fatherhood while with Audioslave has made him high and given him a new take on life.
  • Chris from Columbus, OhMy favorite lyric by far is "Took advice from the wrong shoulder; took a lot of everything."
  • Brandon from Saskatoon, Canadathis is my favourite audioslave song. the "halo, i'm complete, halo i'm reborn" is a real cool lyric
  • Ashley from Moncton, CanadaThis is one of favourite songs from Out Of Exile and I find it is a lot like Black Sabbath, at the first especially.
  • Phil from Hampshire, Englandthe lyric is 'sitting on the bottom rung'

    as in bottom rung of a ladder at the bottom were no one would even listen to what he had to say and there was so much more he wanted to do (move up the ladder)
