Audioslave - Out Of Exile Lyrics




When I first came to this island
that I called by own name
I was happy in this fortress,
in my exile I remained
But the hours grew so empty
and the ocean sent her waves
In the figure of a woman
and she pulled me out to sea

[Chorus]
When you come down to take me home
send my soul away
When you come round you'll make me whole
send my soul away

On the altar of a sunrise
was a wedding in the waves
And inside her shown a young light
from her labor I was saved
Though I've traveled long in darkness
in her harvest I'm embraced

[Chorus]
When you come down to take me home
send my soul away
When you come round you'll make me whole
send my soul away

Now the spires and the gables
grow in orchards to the sky
And the blessings on my table
multiply and divide

[Chorus]
When you come down to take me home
send my soul away
Yeah when you come round you'll make me whole
send my soul away
Yeah when you come down to take me home
when you come round you'll make me whole
Yeah when you come round to take me home
Send my soul away
send my soul away
Send my soul away
send my soul away

  9. Giovanny Giraldo

    I miss you Chris Cornell 😢

  10. Brett

    Love Audioslave. Love Rage Against The Machine. I just cant get behind Tom's leads in Audioslave songs though. This one just sounds like noise! I'm a guitar player that loves leads too...... Am i alone here?

    King Dedede

    No, I believe the same thing! I love RATM but for some odd reason Tom's solos in Audioslave just sound... Idk, like they don't really fit? It seems weird considering that's what he's known for and all and I generally enjoy them, but with this album among the other two, his solos seem out of place or just straight-up bad/weird to describe it

  11. Daniel Giles

    I've always been a fan Chris Cornell, Soundgarden, and Audioslave, but I never really payed attention to these lyrics. I found myself gravitating to this song lately. Then I realized how much the song's story of a woman's redemptive love and what becoming a father can do for you. Might as well be my life story. Now I REALLY love it. Damnit...why aren't you still here, Chris???

    We jam 🎸 this in HOUSTON, TX

    Lyrics

    When
    I first came to this island
    That I called by
    My own name
    I was happy
    In this fortress
    In my exile
    I remained
    But the hours
    Grew so empty
    And the ocean
    Sent her waves
    In the figure
    Of a woman
    She pulled me
    Out to sea

    Oh
    When you come down
    To take me home
    Oh
    Send my soul away
    Oh
    When you come round
    You'll make me whole
    Oh
    Send my soul away

    On the altar
    Of a sunrise
    Was a wedding
    In the waves
    And inside her shown
    A young light
    From her labor
    I was saved
    Though I've
    Traveled long
    In darkness
    In her harvest
    I'm embraced

    Oh
    When you come down
    To take me home
    Oh
    Send my soul away
    Oh
    Yeah,
    When you come round
    You'll make me whole
    Send my soul away

    Now the spires
    And the gables
    Grow in orchards
    To the sky
    And the blessings
    On my table
    Multiply and divide
    Yeah

    Oh
    When you come down
    To take me home
    Oh
    Send my soul away
    Oh
    Yeah,
    When you come round
    You'll make me whole
    Oh
    Send my soul away
    Yeah
    When you come down
    To take me home
    When you come round
    You'll make me whole
    Yeah,
    When you come down
    To take me home

    Send my soul away
    Send my soul away
    Send my soul away
    Send my soul away

    Toda vez que ouço Audioslave me impressiono com o talento do Tim, e a forma como ele segura as músicas sozinho pra dar base pras loucuras do Morello, acho que essa música é o melhor exemplo disso, no verso ele mantém um groove que vai simples, e volta cheio de notas, mas não fica cansativo, muito pelo contrário, atrai a atenção das pessoas pro contrabaixo que é um instrumento desconhecido pela maioria dos não músicos, resumindo o cara é um baixista e tanto, muito fera, uma inspiração pra os baixistas menos experientes como eu.

    Rivera

    Sem dúvidas, o cara é um dínamo. Naturalmente, o entrosamento do trio do Rage Against the Machine ajuda demais esses caras manterem o pique da remada.

    Isso sem contar o talento deles.

  16. Jack Boot

    This man was crying for help all his life, and no one ever really noticed or thought it would lead him to take his own life and throw away the millions he made from millions of his fans, he started out as a HS drop out with very little cash. He left it all behind without any explanation....

  17. 1776bricks

    this is one of those songs that a guy can listen to without having to suffer any extra radiation

  18. Simone Costi

    A great example of how can do a fucking good mainstream hard rock song, but remaining true to yourself and not selling your soul

  19. Terrell Riley

    Love this song. ...will u come down to take home?

  20. tomik524

    I got here by accident. I never really knew who Chris Cornell was and when the news of his death reached me on social media, I was indifferent. I've only just realized that 'Your Time Has Come' is sung by him. This led me onto here. Now I'm sad he's dead. Thanks a bunch, YouTube....

    Michelle Frishman

    He was absolutely amazing! Everything that he did was incredible! So much talent!🤘👑⚘

    Chris Hansel

    Check out temple of the dog, and some of his solo stuff, he was the most profound musician of my generation by far

  21. Bunni

    :23 tho... sick.

  22. Filipe Salvador

    What can i say about this song? Incredible! Just incredible!

  23. Alexander Steiner

    God speed Chris Cornell. He had a silky smooth voice. Ya just wanted to wrap yourself in his vocal chords.

    Glacius

    He was the ultimate example of vocal talent that you simply can't teach. His range and control on the high notes was phenominal.

    Juergen Kotzian

    nicely put

    Alexander Steiner beautiful image

    R.I.P. Chris Cornell 18 may 2017

    MrJeezus

    The real tragedy is how after a lifetime of music and fortune, he still was empty. This song is about being saved by family, yet we still lost him.

  33. Scurzyyy

    Why the hell would anyone dislike this song?!

    SoheiFox

    because, aside from the chorus, it's sung in the same fashion a five year old sings. It's just talking, wavering, trying to sound "musical".

    jay gopinath

    @SoheiFox wtf are talking about are you for real your are such a fool "it's sung in the same fashion a five year old sings" wow just wow if a five year old can sing like this that five year this reincarnation of Chris Cornell him self and will be a god tier singer i bet you cant sing at tall and know shit about singing with saying shit like this

  34. Krunoslav Blašković

    3:05 , RIP Chris , man what a lost

  35. robby kight

  36. NOWAY RAY

    Hitlers homophobic asshole ghost rose from the grave to dislike this 5 times.
    From the looks of those dislikes i'd say hes crawling with STDs

  37. WockNWollWusty

    I played this song as loud as I could for my cat......and now he's a dog

    Erick Guevara

    Michael Guerra

    WockNWollWusty Temple of the Dog!

  38. lucasfunkt

    Love this song because it has an excellent guitar riff like almost all songs on the first album. 

    Are there any more Audioslave songs like this from the other albums? 

    lucasfunkt

    @Shiftdougler Thanks but by I was asking about songs from other than their first album. 

    I still feel this is the only song that is comparable to the great riffs on that first album. But I'd be gladly to be proved wrong.

    Daniel Brasslett

    @lucasfunkt i like Your Time has come, thats sorta similar if you ask me :)

    lucasfunkt

    @Walter White Thank you, yeah I think that and Revelations are probably the only ones that come close to the first album sound. 

    Mister Bunker

    +lucasfunkt Yesterday to Tomorrow is another good one

    lucasfunkt

    Thanks, yeah thats quite good, I've listened to the album a lot more now and I think #1 Zero and The Worm are really good and almost match the quality of the first album. 

  39. Felipe

    el riff del estribillo es explosivo, cortesía del señor Tom Morello. Buena canción

  40. DelaneyV93

    The slide in the chorus riff is dynamite!

    Nathan Arent

    DelaneyV93 that slide takes off like a fucking rocket.

  41. Milango Milango

    the offspring's defy you, hahaha

  42. M. Yasin

    Damn shame we got a thumbs down...I say it was an accident.

  43. TheLunaticPenguin

  44. 7patterj

  45. João Jacques

    It was Zack de la Rocha who disliked this song...

  46. adam srayi
