Whatsoever I feared has come to life
Whatsoever I fought off became my life
Just when every day seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I'm doing time
Now I'm doing time

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I cured, I've sickened now
Whomsoever I cradled, I've put you down
Search my soul, they say, but I can't see it in the night
I'm only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know that this could be my fate?
How would I know that this could be my fate?

So what you wanted to see good has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours, you've made it mine
So don't you lock up something that you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking, no, not tying
No, not tying

I sure don't mind a change
I sure don't mind a change
Yeah, I sure don't mind
I sure don't mind a change
I sure don't mind a change

But I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know that this could be my fate?
How would I know that this could be my fate?
How would I know that this could be my fate?
How would I know that this could be my fate?
I sure don't mind a change

yuck.
not here for this.
One of the few bands labeled metal of any atomic number that had rhythm and time.  
That sound. That voice.

Yes but unlike some bands this one had the one and only Chris Cornell.

Fantastic then and I hope Chris has transcended to a better place now.
More like this, please. 10.
great heavy album
Not many of these guys left now{#Neutral}
I don't — and I hope I never do — buy into "sympathy for the junkie," but I'll say that I can sort of appreciate his passionate ownership.
RIP Chris
This song takes on a new eerily prophetic meaning now
ive never been so upset over the passing of a musician. god rest his tortured soul

Another great voice gone. Mistery of life and death; this guy apparently had everything, at least my love and admiration...

Could be the ghost of Kurt , his own ghost and misuse of Ativan.

That which is meant to alleviate anxiety only amps up the dark side and lures the demons. 
 
Well said Bill.
Not happy here either.
Oh Chris ... why, just why? R.I.P.
I wore this CD out back in the day! I just read that they'll be touring again soon.
Shit on my guitar!

To those that say this song (and the album in general) has been overplayed... you must not assume everybody listening to RP have heard this.  I only learnt about Chris Cornell when he recorded that song for a James Bond film. Although I am of an age where the 70's was my favourite era I skipped the 90's because I was absorbed in bringing up a young family and did not have much "me" time.

When the kids were growing up I started to hear the music they were playing (Greenday, Blink 182, Nirvana, Foo FIghters etc) and I had to learn these new bands quickly to be a relevant father.  Somehow a few names slipped through the net and I did not 'get' Soundgarden or the The Pixies at the time.

Radio Paradise fills in the gaps in my musical education, bit by bit, and I listen to everything without prejudice and an open mind.

I am sorry for those of you that are maybe a bit sick and tired of hearing some things over the decades due to mainstream overexposure, like I might be if RP played, say, Pink Floyd Dark Side of The Moon all the time. 

For those of us that find 'new to us' bands and songs, Radio Paradise is a godsend.

Let the music play on!
