Audioslave - Set It Off Lyrics




He was standing at the rock
Gathering the flock
And getting there with no directions
And underneath the arch, it turned into a march
And there he found the spark to, set this fucker off

Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright
Set it off
Set it off now chldren
Set a fire
Set it off
Set it off now children

Suddenly a shot
Ripped into his heart
He lay in need of some attention
And there he played his card
Going into shock
The last thing that he said was, set this fucker off

Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set a fire
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright, alright, alright. Alright, alright, alright

Jesus at the back door
Everything is all right
All we need is some direction
Every time the wind blows, everything you don't know
Turns into a revelation
And it all adds up inside your head
Time is wasting

Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set a fire
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright, alright, alright. Alright, alright, alright

    Can anyone recommended any rock groups or songs similar to this that aren’t ‘mainstream’ as it were. I’m trying to broaden my music knowledge. Being 18 in this day and age is awful for music taste with all the lil pump garbage. Much appreciated

    Morello is a bell end and ruins most audio slave songs ,his riffs are ridiculous and don't fit ,it's like "oooh tom what else did you get for Christmas" *yawn* not this song particularly but his ego is level 12 ,he's the Mike shinoda of guitars...I realise this won't be a popular opinion

    Gene H

    [Verse 2]
    Suddenly a shot
    Ripped into his heart

  95. Robert McGowan

    RIP Chris , Yahweh bless and keep you . 'Set it off' up there , Going to be a SERIOUS Concert in heaven this summer. . . .

  96. humboldtus

    My favorite Audioslave song. Today was so shocking. Everyone said Chris seemed upbeat in his recent concerts and in his social media posts. His past struggles are well
    documented, but I thought he had put his personal demons behind him. I
    don't want anyone to continue to suffer their whole lives just because
    it makes others feel bad if they are gone, but I wonder if Chris every
    tried any psychiatric therapy. It's cliched but I feel he "robbed us of
    his talent." With all the anger, confusion, and pain this country
    seems to be in, we need a voice like his to express these feelings. RIP
    Chris.

    Suyash Upadhyay

    humboldtus depression is just like cancer. It will eat u from inside and the treatment isn't 100% effective. rIp Chris, hope u finally got rid of the pain.

    Beth Owen

    I don't think I have ever heard such a selfish, lack of understanding or compassion in my life. He CHEATED YOU from music!!!!! You have an issue
    Some people are not able to deal with the demons in life. Most of those are some of the greatest artist // musicians . I don't think it is someone 's place to pass judgement or speculate on what treatment he may have had. Maybe
    write a letter to his remaining family members and tell them how you feel
    CHEATED. He gave what he was able to give let his memory and the wonderful music he left be enough for you . He was not put here to be anything but a human being .

  97. Harby Alexander Martinez Rodriguez

    Only Power,
    Thank you chris cornell D.T.B

    1st listening when my age 20s, so inspiring, motivating n nice song for desperate moment
