Rock out with your NOOSE out

Chris Cornell dead at 52

With the death of Chris Cornell yesterday by what is being investigated as a suicide at this time, it had me thinking about all sorts of things. What was going on there? Reports say that his wife was baffled by his apparent suicide by hanging since he never mentioned suicide ever. However when you observe his lyrics, there is a lot of darkness in there. Coincidentally, this is my favorite song from his catalog...

Pretty Noose

I caught the moon today
Pick it up
And throw it away all right
I got the perfect steal
A cleaner love
With a dirty feel all right
Fallout and take the bait
Eat the fruit
And kiss the snake goodnight
Common ruse dirty face
Pretty noose is pretty hate
And I don't like
What you got me hanging from
Let your motor race
Pick it up
And get this mother gone
Out from and far away
The wooden snake
This thing has got me on
Diamond rope silver chain
Pretty noose is a pretty pain
And I don't like
What you got me hanging from
I don't care what you got
I don't care what you need
I don't want anything
And I don't like what
You got me hanging from
