The Day Seattle Died (again)

Well damn. I was trying to be lazy today and just do a repost of last year's April 5th. But, since all 3 videos have been removed...I guess I'll do this again.

April 5, 2012.

April 5, the day Seattle died.

Two music legends. Two of my favorites ever. Two of the best. Both from Seattle. Both dead on the same day.

Kurt Cobain
February 20, 1967 - April 5, 1994



Layne Staley
August 22, 1967 - April 5, 2002




Cold - "The Day Seattle Died" 

Turn all the lights down low
Trying to fade your apathy
Made up a world where you can’t even be you
Star in a tragedy
Shattered voice on an open chord
they line up around the world just to hear you scream

Blown away by fame
We could all feel the shotgun hit the floor
Never mind in faith
If you can't believe

Drowning in misery
The nightmare began when you closed the door
You sat in your angry chair and just tried to be you
The needle became your queen
The drug had become your enemy
And music was just a way for you to bleed

Blown away by fame
We could all feel the shotgun hit the floor
Never mind in faith
If you can't believe

Blown away by fame
We could all feel the shotgun hit the floor
Never mind in faith
If you can't believe
and you won't believe
and he can't believe
