Audioslave - Doesn't Remind Me



In this song, Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell lists a number of things he enjoys, all for the same reason: they don't remind him of anything.


The song is open to interpretation and can have very different meaning depending on the listener. Enjoying the simple pleasures in life is one key to happiness, in part because that's time not spent dredging up painful memories. The lyric could sound trite if not delivered by Cornell, who even when singing about gypsy moths could bare his soul.


Lyrics


I walk the streets of Japan 'til I get lost


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything


With a graveyard tan carrying a cross


Yeah, it doesn't remind me of anything


I like studying faces in parking lot


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything


I like drivin' backwards in the fog


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything



The things that I've loved, things that I've lost


Things I've held sacred that I've dropped


I won't lie no more you can bet


I don't wanna learn what I'll need to forget



I like gypsy moths and radio talk


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything


I like gospel music and canned applause


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything


I like colorful clothing in the sun


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything


I like hammering nails and speaking in tongues


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything



The things that I've loved, things that I've lost


Things I've held sacred that I've dropped


I won't lie no more you can bet


Don't wanna learn what I'll need



Bend and shape me, I love the way you are


Slow and sweetly like never before


Calm and sleeping, we won't stir up the past


So discreetly we won't look back



The things that I've loved, things that I've lost


Things I've held sacred that I've dropped


I won't lie no more you can bet


I don't wanna learn what I'll need



I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars


'Cause it doesn't remind me of anything


I like playin' in the sand, what's mine is ours


If it doesn't remind me of anything
