Chris CornellDisappearing Act

Come on now the curtain is drawn And tomorrow stands before you Dressed and draped in a cold black cape like a crow He ignores you Look again there's a beautiful girl Covers sin in a holy land shroud It's the great disappearing act Done once again for the marveled crowd As we're chasing our tails And biting our nails So strong and frail And we build and tear it down Build and tear it down Build and tear it down With barely the time to say How did it get so late I'll never know Step outside and now the door's open wide And the minons are eager to find him Put a million miles under your heels And you're still behind him Cover your clocks with your chains and your locks While the seasons get hotter and colder Stretch your faces and lie about your ages And still we're gonna get older As we're chasing our tails And biting our nails So strong and frail And we build and tear it down Build and tear it down Build and tear it down With barely the time to say How did it get so late I'll never know I'll never know I'll never know Hang on 'til your fingers break And your hands unwind He will escape you every time From under your pillows Through open windows And out on the rails As we build and tear it down Build and tear it down Build and tear it down With barely the time to say How did it get so late I'll never know I'll never know I'll never know
