Chris Cornell – When Bad Does Good lyrics
[Intro]
Standing beside an open grave
Your fate decided, your life erased
Your final hour has come today
Lit by the fire of your temples burning

[Verse 1]
You were a child and so was I
Now you're a hunter but I am a lion
And I will cut you down like I've done so many times
But sometimes bad can do some good
Sometimes bad can do some good
Sometimes bad can do some good

[Chorus]
And I heard you say that flesh sells by the pound
When blood is raining down it cuts a deep river
And I'm diving

[Verse 2]
Now shine a light down onto the earth
And shake this gold dust out, out of the dirt
No saints beside me and no prayers to guide me
Sometimes bad can do some good
Bad can do some good
Sometimes bad can do some good

[Interlude]

[Verse 3]
(Rain down, heaven is falling)
I've chosen a side and I will show no pity
(Rain down, heaven is falling)
And spare no lives
For those who try me
(Rain down, heaven is falling)
Let it be understood
Sometimes bad can do some good
(Rain down, heaven is falling)
Sometimes bad can do some good
(Rain down, heaven is falling)
Sometimes bad can do some good
