Room A Thousand Years Wide Lyrics

Artist: Soundgarden
Album: Badmotorfinger

Listen, hear he is inside
One who lives while others lie
I close my eyes and walk a thousand years
A thousand years that aren't mine
It seems he's near me when I walk
One who loved what love denied
He lives these years that I walk blind
All these years can not be mine


Tomorrow begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow


A thousand doors a thousand lies
Rooms a thousand years wide
He walks in the cold sun and wind
All these years can not begin


Tomorrow begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow

Sheer poetic class, Im not even sure which of Cornell or Cameron wrote these lyrics.???It was certainly a Cameron song.

Either way its mind blowing and I've never really fully interpreted it, I think perhaps its an idea of a haunting by a presence that is more alive and real than you feel.... or maybe it focuses on trying to live up to someone who is more alive than you feel and knowing you never will???

whats begat?

@ yoyo: begat is an old term basically meaning "started".

@ MJ: Agreed, poetry in action. Lyrics were actually written by Kim Thayil; regarding the meaning, he's quoted as saying, "It's not really about things that have actually happened to me. It's more about experience in general. I've heard a lot of good ideas from people telling me what it's about. They said it's about God, Satan, Jesus, Satan, both, it's religious, it isn't religious...The truth is, it's just me."

One of my favorite Soundgarden songs :)

This song is about satan. Although Satan, even after his judgment in
the cross (Col. 2:15), continues to reign as a usurper (II Cor. 4:4), and
works in tempting and accusing men (Rev. 12:10), he is to be ousted from
the heavenlies (vss. 7-12) as well as the earth (5:1- 19:16), and is to be
confined to the abyss for a thousand years (20:1-3). When released from the abyss at the end of the thousand years, he will
make one last mad attempt to lead his armies against God (Rev. 20:8-9)
