    ________________
   / Soundgarden   /  The inspiration for this song came from the weird musician called
  / Spoonman      /  Artis the Spoonman, which Cornell met once. He literally played with
 / Superunknown  /  spoons on strings. The background ticking in the Interlude is actually
/_______________/  spoons! But I really don't what this song is about deeper than that.

  Come on, come on, come on
