Burden in My Hand

Follow me into the desert 

as thirsty as you are

Crack a smile and cut your mouth 

and drown in alcohol


‘Cause down below the truth is lyin’ 

beneath the riverbed

So quench yourself and drink the water 

that flows below her head



Lyrics from “Burden in My Hand” by Soundgarden, 1996.
