Soundgarden - Non-State Actor Lyrics




Coin in every pocket
More mouths to fill
So weak in the land
Strong in the will
(Need)
I'll be your beast of burden
I'll be the seed

I bring you the healer
Feel your disease
I bring dirty water
And make it clean
(Young)
And you are the cure
I am the drug

And we settle for
A little bit more than everything
We're not elected
But we will speak
We're not the chosen
But we believe
And we settle for
A little bit more than everything

Bullets, guns and missiles
A stone and a sling
A motherless country
Of thee I sing
(Song)
You are the tank and rockets
I am the bomb

I teach you a lesson
Sword for a pen
Reading turn the pages
A history of man
(Look)
You are tabula rasa
I am the book

And we settle for
A little bit more than everything
We're not elected
But we will speak
We're not the chosen
But we believe
And we settle for
A little bit more than everything

I'm a non-state actor
I'm a non-state actor
I'm a non-state
I'm a non-state actor

And we settle for
A little bit more than everything
We're not elected
But we will speak
We're not the chosen
But we believe
And we settle for
A little bit more than everything
A little bit more
A little bit more
A little bit more

    This one has a real hard Louder Than Love vibe to it. Always been my favorite on the record.

    Hey

    Coin in every pocket, 
    More mouths to fill
    So weak in the land, 
    Strong in the will 
    Need
    I'll be your beast of burden
    I'll be the seed
    Hey
    I'll bring you the healer, 
    Feel your disease
    I bring dirty water 
    And make it clean 
    Young
    And you are the cure, 
    I am the drug

    And we settle for a little 
    Bit more than everything
    We're not elected, 
    But we will speak
    We're not the chosen, 
    But we believe
    And we settle for a little 
    Bit more than everything
    Yeah

    Bullets, 
    Guns 
    And missiles, 
    A stone and a sling
    A motherless country 
    Of thee I sing
    Song
    You are the
    Tank and rockets, 
    I am the bomb
    I teach you a lesson, 
    Sword for a pen
    Reading 
    Turn the pages, 
    A history of man 
    Look
    You are tabula rasa, 
    I am the book

    And we settle for a little 
    Bit more than everything
    We're not elected, 
    But we will speak
    We're not the chosen, 
    But we believe
    And we settle for a little 
    Bit more than everything

    I'm a non-state actor
    I'm a non-state actor
    I'm a non-state
    I'm a non-state actor

    And we settle for a little 
    Bit more than everything
    We're not elected, 
    But we will speak
    We're not the chosen, 
    But we believe
    Yeah
    And we settle for a little 
    Bit more than everything

    A little bit more
    A little bit more
    A little bit more
    A little bit more

    It's so hard for me to listen to the albums, especially Pretty Noose. I miss him so.

    An Audioslave

    He didn't hang himself. Don't buy into that shit. He had 9 broken ribs. That never happens with CPR. NEVER!!! He was murdered or "suicided" if you will for wanting to expose a huge human trafficking pedophile ring. Same goes for Chester Bennington and Anthony Bourdain. I mean look at the progression of his life just by the Lyrics in his music. In the latest album, the song Our Time In The Universe he says this:
    See you don’t fall
    No matter the end
    See it unfold no matter the means
    See it fold up whatever happens to be
    It’s what it will be

    He was finally in a happy place in his life and he decides to off himself then, huh? Same with Chester and others.

    sean Costello

    An Audioslave people just believe what the media sells them ....poor sheep ....it was not suicide outside sources Prolly involved

    Dawn Brown

    Rothschild Zionism needs to be exposed Chris and Chester were murdered

  13. rlm rlm

    I hope they'll use this as soundtrack on the end-credits scene of avengers 4

  14. Andrew Phipps Phillips

    Beautiful stuff & we all miss him.Boy oh boy did he leave us one hell of a legacy though. Go out there & take up music, that way his loss wasn't completely in vain. Do the guy proud!!

  15. Mike Pruitt

    You all research on what Chris's wife did in his honor at what i believe was UCLA Law Dept., she started (with the schools blessings) a fund of sorts to promote "Equal Rights & power to us people...read up on it, its vague in my head...

  16. Andrew Lockett

    The groove on this is comparable with their Big Dumb Sex. So smooth and slippery

  17. Mike Pruitt

    Fuck yah! RIP Chris...

  18. Green Tea
