Words by chris cornell
Music by kim thayil

Hands all over the eastern border
You know what? I think we're falling
From composure
Hands all over western culture
Ruffling feathers and turning eagles into vultures


Got my arms around baby brother
Put your hands away
Your gonna kill your mother, kill your mother
And I love her


Hands all over the coastal waters
The crew men thank her
Then lay down their oily blanket
Hands all over the inland forest
In a striking motion trees fall down
Like dying soldiers


Hands all over the peasants daughter
She's our bride
She'll never make it out alive
Hands all over words I utter
Change them into what you want to
Like balls of clay
Put your hands away
Your gonna kill your mother
And I love her
