"I wrote this 4 years ago, the night Chris Cornell died" .....
"You're a prince, you're a snare, you're a shadow/You're twilight and star burn and shade/You're a sage, you're a wound shared, you're masked/You're a pillar of smoke, you're a platinum heart/You're a brush fire, you're caged, you're free/Your vision pierces, you do not see/You are pieces strewn on a hillside/You're open-armed, you're armed, you're true/You're a revealer of visions, you're a passenger, you're a never fading scar/You're twilight and star burn and shade/You're the secret veiled, you're the secret revealed, you're surrounded no more/You're not there, now you're always here/You're a handsome groom, a loving father, a haunted stairwell/You're the clear bell ringing, the mountains echo your song/Maybe no one has ever known you/You are twilight and star burn and shade."
