Safe and Sound

Safe and Sound

Chris Cornell

Think of a time when morning will come
And you will wake up
Without the feeling that half the world
Has gone insane

You'll open your eyes
Reading your paper, a drink from your cup
No one was burning down the town
While you were sleeping

I've never seen but I believe
In a promised land

Why can't we pull this together
One and all, now and forever
Why can't we pull this together

We can say we finally found a world around us
Safe and sound

Think of a place
Where you could believe in whatever you want
Not keep it secret
Have to risk your life just to be yourself

A place where you'll walk safely
No matter your color or age
More than the greed of you and me
Decides the fate of the day

I've never seen but I believe
In a promised land

Why can't we pull this together
One and all, now and forever
Why can't we pull this together

We can say we finally found a world around us
Safe and sound

I'd rather see you setting free
Than watch the curtains coming down

Think of a life you won't take a breath
From somebody else
One where you're seeking
More than yourself

Why can't we pull this together
One and all, now and forever
Why can't we pull this together

We can say we finally found a world us
Safe and sound

Why can't we pull this together
(Pull this together)
One and all, now and forever
(Now and forever)
Why can't we pull this together

We can say we finally found a world around us
Safe and sound

I'd rather see you setting free
Than watch the curtains coming down
