Temple Of The Dog – Hunger Strike lyrics
I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence
But I can't feed on the powerless when my cup's already overfilled
But it's on the table
The fire is cooking and they're farming babies, while the slaves are working
The blood is on the table and their mouths are chocking
But I'm growing hungry
I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence
But I can't feed on the powerless when my cup's already overfilled
But it's on the table
The fire is cooking and they're farming babies, while the slaves are working
And it's on the table, their mouths are choking
But I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)
I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)
I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)
I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)

I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)
I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)

I don't mind stealing bread (I don't mind)
I don't mind stealing bread
I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)
I'm growing hungry (Growing hungry)

    I personally think this song is about Soviet Russia. There was a famine in the 1940s, and people were going hungry and emaciated. Some people were even sent to the Gulags, which could be what the references to slavery are referring to. Gulags were labor camps that certain people were sent to. This song is referring to all of that stuff in the Soviet Union, at least that's how I interpret it. As for the bread references, the thing that started the Russian Revolution was, in fact, bread.
