I posted this once before I erased this site and restarted it, but now it seems relevant again, RIP Chris Cornell. This Johnny Cash doing Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage, my favorite Soundgarden Song and my favorite cover by Cash.

The Lyrics

You wired me awake
And hit me with a hand of broken nails
You tied my lead and pulled my chain
To watch my blood begin t boil

But I’m gonna break I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Yeah I’m gonna break I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Too cold to start a fire
I’m burning diesel burning dinosaur bones
I’ll take the river down to still water and ride a pack of dogs

But I’m gonna break I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Hit like a Phillips head into my brain
It’s gonna be too dark to sleep again
Cutting my teeth on bars and rusty chains
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

When the forest burns along the road
Like God’s eyes in my headlights
When the dogs are looking for their bones
And it’s raining ice picks on your steel shore

I’m gonna break I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

I’m gonna break I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run
