Chris Cornell – You Know My Name lyrics

If you take a life do you know what you'll give?
Odds are you won't like what it is
When the storm arrives would you be seen with me
By the merciless eyes I? Ve deceived?

I've seen angels fall from blinding heights
But you yourself are nothing so divine
Just next in line

Arm yourself because no one else here will save you
The odds will betray you and I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you, are you willing to die?
The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name

If you come inside things will not be the same
When you return to the night
And if you think you've won you never saw me change
The game that we have been playing

I've seen diamonds cut through harder men
Than you yourself but if you must pretend
You may meet your end

Arm yourself because no one else here will save you
The odds will betray you and I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you, are you willing to die?
The coldest blood runs through my veins

Try to hide your hand, forget how to feel
(Forget how to feel)
Life is gone with just a spin of the wheel
(Spin of the wheel)

Arm yourself because no one else here will save you
The odds will betray you and I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you, are you willin' to die?
The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name

(You know my name)
You know my name
(You know my name)
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name

    Those who say this song is about James Bond have never been able to tell me who he's replacing, and what merciless eyes he's deceived.
    I still think this song is about a secret agent type, one who's suave with the ladies and associated with law enforcement - but aside from that, he and James Bond have nothing whatsoever in common. For instance, this guy's strongest claim to being an action hero is that he once sat in a helicopter while the other passengers were conducting a chase scene. And if you know the fellow I'm talking about, a three-puppet salute to you!
