   / Audioslave               /  I think this song is about Cornell's speculations
  / Shape of Things To Come  /  about the future for him and his family. Note the
 / Revelations              /  family that he mentions in most of his lyrics on 
/__________________________/  Revelations. On the dvd that follow with the cd, he says
                             that now that he has become a father, he now writes his
lyrics from the view of his family and not himself as a single person anymore, sweet isn't it?

 Intro:
 The distorted guitar (in drop-d tuning of course) is overdubed here

  " When it's late in the hour
    And a few more grains of sand will fall
    On the colourful flowers
    Grown upon the dust and moss
    Now I fear the worst is near
    I hold them close and count their years
    I pray a ray of light appears
    To shine down on us here "

 2nd Verse: 4x
similar to 1st Verse

  " There's a crack in the clouds
    But only for a moment now
    Like an eye looking out
    The blue sky spies the roads we will go down
    I wonder what they hold for us
    I hold my family to my breast
    I fear the worst and hope the best
    Will come to see us blessed "

the point is however just to make it sounds weird - his speciality)
