Audioslave Moth Lyrics

Last updated: 03/07/2008 10:00:00 AM

Thought I was different and it seems I'm just the same
As a game I put my hand over the flame
I thought I was smarter as I flew into the sun
But it turned out the way it does with everyone

Oh, oh
I don't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I don't fly around your fire anymore

I love the heat I love the things that I forgot
I love the strings that tie me down and cut me off
I was a king, I was a moth with painted wings made of cloth
When did the flame burn so high and get so hot?

Oh, oh
I don't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I don't fly around, fly around
Fly around

I don't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I won't fly around, fly around

I won't fly around your fire anymore
I don't fly around your fire anymore
Burnin', fallin' down so many times before
I don't fly around, fly around
Oh

Great Track for being written in 1 day | Reviewer: C.A.C. | 3/7/2008

I have all 3 Audioslave albums that I "borrowed" off the internet and this is one of my top 5 favorite tracks.

This song could hold several different meanings.....it's all about perception, either the ex-girlfriend thought or about his past drug use. I'm going to say past drug use because I have been there before



REAL Good | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/25/2007

Though I think most people would associate this song with an ex-somebody, I think it speaks more to harmful addiction as a whole. Specifically, I'd say it's about Cornell's past drug use.

But what I really meant to say was: this song rocks hard.



meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/6/2007

the songs about an ex girlfriend he was obsessed with but she kept hurting him so he doesn't fly around her fire anymore because he gets burnt and he thought he was special but he was just another moth around the flame



kinda good | Reviewer: Jevin | 5/3/2007
