Let Me Drown Lyrics

Stretch the bones over my skin
Stretch the skin over my head
I'm going to the holy land
Stretch the marks over my eyes
Burn the candles deep inside
Yeah you know where I'm coming from

Give up to greed, you don't have to feed me
Give up...

    It's the story of John the Baptist and Jesus. Slip down darkness to the mouth. That's what happened when the angel came to Zaccariha(johns dad).Drown me in you is baptism. Stretch the marks over my eyes is the crown of thorns.

    Chris Cornell has stated previously, specifically in 1994, that he wrote this song with the concept of reentering a mother's womb, akin to salmon returning to their place of birth when they die.
