Audioslave - Shape Of Things To Come Lyrics




Well it's late in the hour and a few more grains of sand will fall.
On the colorful flowers grown upon the dust and moss.
Now I feel the worst is near,
I hold them close and count their years.
And pray a ray of light appears
To shine down on us here

Breakdown in the shape of things to come
But I'm moving on like a soldier.
And I say now when all is said and done:
It's not ours to break, the shape of things to come.

There's a crack in the clouds, but only for a moment now
Like an owl looking out, the blue sky spies the roads we will go down.
I wonder what they hold for us? I hold my family to my breast,
I feel the worst and hope the best will come to see us blessed.

Breakdown in the shape of things to come
But I'm moving on like a soldier.
And I say now when all is said and done:
It's not ours to break, the shape of things to come.
Hey! Hey!

Give me one more try in what I'll change.
I won't deny the thought is strange.
I've done my best and now will lay no blame myself.

Breakdown in the shape of things to come
But I'm moving on like a soldier.
And I say now when all is said and done:
It's not ours to break, the shape of things to come.

The shape of things to come.
The shape of things to come.

  4. Logan Kruse

    Well, it's late in the hour
    And a few more grains of sand will fall
    On the colorful flowers
    Have grown upon the dust and moss
    Now I feel the worst is near
    I hold them close and count their years
    Pray, a ray of light appears
    To shine down on us here

    [Chorus]
    Break down in the shape of things to come
    But I'm moving on like a soldier
    And I say now when all is said and done
    It's not ours to break the shape of things to come

    [Verse 2]
    There's a crack in the clouds
    But only for a moment now
    Like an eye looking out
    In the blue skies finds the roads, we will go down
    I wonder what they hold for us
    I hold my family to my breast
    I fear the worst and hope the best
    Will come to see us blessed

  6. English Survival Guide

    This appearing on Miami Vice and Shadow on the Sun in Collateral are both great examples of marrying audio & visuals.

  7. Gail Gray

    What can bring the tears and stop them? This song or any song on this album🦊

  8. Nightowl358

    One of my fav Audioslave tracks.

  10. Kila_ Kam82

    I first heard this on Miami Vice and finally found who sings it

    Orwell Jones Laeddis

    I first heard it because my cousin played it loud in the late morning summer of '09 back in high school. Best summer days.

  11. Pablo Dario Benitez Desvars

    Probably the best song from the revelation album, love it since the day it came out. Audioslave has been my companion since my teenage days. Just love them, and I absolutely love Chris's voice and songwriting.

  12. Tomáš F.

    Finally found that awesome song pro Miami Vice movie. Thank you!

  26. GuGu E. Michaels

    Man! One of the best songs EVER made. Thanks to Miami Vice for introducing this song to me. Chris had a voice that can never be duplicated. May he rest in peace. Thank you guys (Audioslave) for giving the world this song.

  27. LuAnne Bernier

    I Love this song!!! Miss you so much Chris!!! R.I.P.

  28. CAMPER FANTASMA

    Acho essa música o "carro-chefe" do Audioslave

  29. Natural83

    R.I.P Chris my friend he reminds me of Creed Lead singer Scott

    Adrian Lee

    @Bobby Stewart that really just sounds stupid seen em both live they're both amazing

    Bobby Stewart

    That great, bro. Chris is still far above Scott.

    Adrian Lee

    @Bobby Stewart if Scott was dead you'd be saying the same shit

    Ladonna Brock

    Natural83 Creed?? Scott would sell his soul for a voice like Chris Cornell had.

  30. Tune Up Plus

    Chris, your gift to us will live on forever brother, we will miss you but we will never forget you! 🙏

  31. Isaac Levy

    Who are the 8 idiots who disliked this song?

    Ceasar Salazar

    Isaac Levy people who can't appreciate good music.

    Cuzdcrow

    Idiots
    We know what they like
    Ain't got a life

    Rickey85

    Fuck em!!!

    Stinger Johnny

    Rickey85 I’ve heard people say audioslave blows. As someone who personally grew up with them, I find that statement offensive. However, even taking my bias out of the equation, what about this is not good? I get taste is subjective but fucking hell man.

    tucko11

    Oh come on man everything is disliked on YouTube just sit back and enjoy 😉

  32. randall scott burress

  34. T Hitsugaya

    Sounds a lot like Johnny Strong of Operator.

    Gil TM

    more less!, johnny has a common voice if you compare the versatility of chris voice... from soundgarden to audioslave, this is what I call a great evolutioned voice!

  35. GGHaj12

    One of my all time favorite songs from Revelations.

    GGHaj12

    Agree. He was the best ever!

    T Hitsugaya

    Yeah, but Johnny Strong is close

  38. Michel Sanfacon

    R.I.P. The best voice of the last 20 years.

    Vision Quest Outdoors

    Probably more like the best voice of the past 6,000 years, im sure there was someone of matched ability but not before that time range.

    Dan Stevens

    Justin bieber!

    Anthony Webber1981

    Mixed with Layne Staley and Eddie vedder

    James Felter

    I respected him when was alive I've been homeless drug addict never gave up never contemplated killing my self . just don't know why . just know I'm sad

  39. Adelia Hogarth
