Lyrics Temple of the Dog

Temple of the Dog – Times of Trouble

When the spoon is hot
And the needles sharp
And you drift away
I can hear you say
That the world in black
Is upon your back
And your body shakes
So you ditch away
And you close the shades

Dont try to do it
Dont try to kill your time
You might do it
Then you cant change your mind
Youve got a hold on to your time
Till your break through these
Times of trouble

When you try to talk
And the words get hard
And they put you down
Dont you stay
Dont you ditch away

I saw you swinging
Swinging your mothers sword
I know youre playing but
Sometimes the rules get hard
But if somebody left you out on a ledge
If somebody pushed you over the edge
If somebody loved you and left you for dead
You got to hold on to your time till you break
Through these times of trouble
