   / Audioslave  /  I think this song is about getting on with something that is stuck.
  / Set It Off  /  Cornell probably wrote it with the feeling of being trapped in a
 / Audioslave  /  situation, and then was just aching to move on. This could be a
/_____________/  society or a relationship being stuck; it's about aching to move on.

  He was standing at the rock
  Gathering the flock
  And getting there with no directions
  And underneath the arch
  It turned into a march
  And there he found the spark to set this fucker off

  Set it off, set it off now children
  Set it right
  Set it off, set it off now children
  Set a fire

  Suddenly a shot
  Ripped into his heart
  He lay in need of some attention
  And there he played his card
  Going into shock
  The last thing that he said was set this fucker off

  Jesus at the back door
  Everything is all right
  All we need is some direction
  Every time the wind blows
  Everything you don't know
  Turns into a revelation
  And it all ends up inside your head
  Time is wasting
