Soundgarden Overfloater Lyrics

Last updated: 07/01/2014 10:11:16 PM

Come on in and take me on an override
Been stuck inside and up all night at Dave's
Now trouble's far away, and mother in her cage
And nothing's gonna pinch this nerve of mine

I wanna make it right

Close the door and pull the shades
And climb the walls
Feel medicine heal the lines of age
I'm here and now I'm gone
I'm there and far beyond
And nothing's gonna pinch this nerve of mine
Nothing gonna pinch this nerve of mine

I wanna make it right

I'm on the wire over and higher
Over the pretense over the spire why
On and connected I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating alone

Breathe and take it in and gently blow it out
Drink it down and swallow hard and gaze
Hold the potion up
Stare your shadow down
Remember to forget and then rename your shame

I wanna make it right

I'm on the wire over and higher
Over the pretense over the spire why
On and connected I'm overfloating now
I'm overfloating alone

Note & Correction | Reviewer: Dave | 7/1/14

The verse that begins "Breathe and take it in..." is not included in the lyric sheet with the album for some reason. Thus I have to acknowledge that it's open to interpretation. I've always heard the second line as "Drink it down and swallow hard AGAIN". That seems to make more sense to me, too.
