Chris Cornell - The Times Are A Changin' Back

Video: Lisa Guilin  


Come gather 'round people from far & wide

Keep for yourselves while the river's run dry

And you find that your tears are getting harder to cry

There's a thirst in your soul that's invading

Start digging your wells, & fall dead in your tracks

'Cause the times, they are a changin' back


Here come bards and the bloggers, who are losing your heads

Only write by repeating what others have said

Now the ones and the zeros, they don't know how to lie

If it's written then it must be a fact

Now winners & losers are equally lost,

And the times they are a changin' back


Come presidents blue, and congressmen red

We do what's been undone and undo it again

As we carry the load for the 1%, who bought you your seat at the table

Well the wine pours red and the hearts turn black, And the times they are a changin' back


Come all you media, women and men

24 hours a day scare the shit out of them

If fear is your business then business is grand

There's always someone somewhere dying

And I know if it gets slow you'll take up the slack

Cause the times they are a changin' back


Come pass the baton in the relay of time

Where death is the only true finish line

And we look to the past or the future is blind

Are we sure that we're equal to the task

Cause I can't help but see the writing on the wall

It reads: the times they are a changin' back
