Audioslave – Like A Stone (album: Audioslave 2003)

This song is by Audioslave. A band that was formed by Chris Cornell from soundgarden and Tom Morello from Rage against the Machine in 2001. Their music is quite a combination between the two bands in my opinion. They have released 3 albums which were very successful and then disbanded. Of course I had to explore this band a little bit since Chris Cornell is my favourite person in the music industry.

This song is about a dying old man that waits for his death. He is reviewing the good and bad things that he has done sitting all alone and hoping to be transferred to a better afterlife. When I’ll die, I’m hoping to get to a really cool place where I’ll meet all the people that I love. The thought about not seeing the people that you love anymore scares me the most. Don’t want to ever say goodbye to my family. Freaks me out completely! Check out this wonderful song...
This is an awesome song and their most famous one, check it out...

Lyrics: Like a Stone Lyrics

What’s this song about?
Bassist Tim Commerford claims that the song is about an old man waiting for death, who sits in a house alone after all his friends and family have passed on, waiting to be reunited with them.However, while Commerford originally thought it was a song about love and romance, band's singer-songwriter Chris Cornell explains that "It's a song about concentrating on the afterlife you would hope for, rather than the normal monotheistic approach: You work really hard all your life to be a good person and a moral persona and fair and generous, and then you go to hell anyway."
