Temple Of The Dog Hunger Strike Lyrics

Last updated: 03/12/2012 11:00:00 AM

I don't mind stealing bread
From the mouths of decadence
But I can't feed on the powerless
When my cup's already overfilled,
But it's on the table
The fire is cooking
And they're farming babies
While slaves are working
Blood is on the table
And the mouths are choking
But I'm going hungry

I don't mind stealing bread
From the mouths of decadence
But I can't feed on the powerless
When my cup's already overfilled
But it's on the table
The fires cooking
And they're farming babies
While the slaves are all working
And it's on the table
The mouths are choking
But I'm going hungry
I'm going hungry

My Most Favorite Song Ever | Reviewer: Rothbardian GIrl | 1/7/11

I literally love everything about this song. There is really nothing I can say about it that hasn't already been said. To me, it just is absolute perfection. It is also one of the few songs that has the power to move me to tears.

Fantastic.



Wrong again... | Reviewer: JackMehoff | 2/1/10

Temple Of The Dog was formed, and recorded the self titled album BEFORE Pearl jame was formed. TOTD was formed as a tribute to Andrew Wood of Mother Love Bone. Maybe you should learn the history before telling someone else they are wrong.



Wrong... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/30/09

"For the record this song was done before Pearl Jam existed. This song was actually the first time Eddie Vedder was recorded professionally.

That being said, it's an absolutely beautiful song. This was before Chris Cornell sold out."

Not true. This song was recording and released in 1991, Pearl Jam formed in 1990. PJ's first album was Ten, released in August '91, where as ToaD was released in April of that year. Not much difference.

Amazing song nonetheless.



Really great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/23/09

i heard this song for the first time a few years back on the radio and thought it was amazing when i found out who plays thee song i looked into the band and noticed that all the band members are people that i have loved for years and them all being together for one mother love bone tribute is completely amazing. i have been a pearl jam fan for more than 9 years and i love sounddgarden. i listened to mother love bone before i knew who pearl jam was. when i found out about this tribute project i was amazed. chris and eddie are like the best singers of all time and them together in one song is insane!!!!!!! R.I.P andrew wood

foshooo | Reviewer: saint mathyous | 2/28/09

Yeah, this song is super dope. I first heard it by Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington at a Linkin Park concert and kinda had it in my head since. That song and Black hole sun actually got me interested in Chris Cornell. I was always more into Kurt but now I like them both. Great song. Fosho



hunger strike | Reviewer: Jess | 1/30/09

this is probably one of the most emotional songs ive ever heard pearl jam just rocks everything they do and i didnt think another band could capture that as well as them but i think temple of the dog was an amazing choice for them to work with this is a beautiful song



Absolutely Awesome song.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/3/08

The feeling alone in this song sends chills down my spine! Its so moving, definitely a classic grunge song. I remember singing this with several close friends on my wedding night, one of my favorite memories of all time. :)



terrific song!! great meaning | Reviewer: Triste08 | 1/21/08

first time Ive heard this song (on a radio station that I listen to) I was touched by it. the music and words put together.. its just great! its a song with a message - short and vague but powerful. everytime I hear it, it just gets to me in a way thats indescribable. goodness.. I really like this song. and I kinda dont know why but its magnificant!!
