Lyrics: 

“Show Me How to Live”

 

And with the early dawn
Moving right along
I couldn't buy and eyeful of sleep
And in the aching night under satellites
I was not received
Built with stolen parts
A telephone in my heart
Someone get me a priest
To put my mind to bed
This ringing in my head
Is this a cure or is this a disease

Chorus
Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live (x2)

And in the after birth
On the quiet earth
Let the stains remind you
You thought you made a man
You better think again
Before my role defines you

Chorus
Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live (x2)

And in your waiting hands
I will land
And roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand
Ready to begin
Ready to begin
Ready to begin
Ready to begin

Chorus
Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live (x2)

Show me how to live
Show me how to live
Show me how to live
Show me how to live

Axis of Justice

Here is some information on the band itself. The band formed after another band, Rage Against the Machine, split with their singer Zack de la Rocha in 2000. The remaining members, Tom Morello (guitar), Tim Commonford (bass), Brad Wilk (drums), invited Chris Cornell, lead former singer of Sound Garden, to join them in 2001 to form Audioslave. They released three albums (Audioslave, Exile, and Revelations) before splitting. (Chris Cornell left the band and each member released solo projects. Zack de la Rocha is together with Rage Against the Machine and they are performing together again, check for dates they are well worth seeing!)  The band members are also politically active.  The group they began is Axis of Justice, the mission statement reads:  Axis of Justice is a non-profit organization formed by Tom Morello and Serj Tankian.  Its purpose is to bring together musicians, fans of music, and grassroots political organizations to fight for social justice. We aim to build a bridge between fans of music around the world and local political organizations to effectively organize around issues of peace, human rights, and economic justice.

Discussing their last album Revelations, (linked to last man theme since the word 'revelations' is apocalytic) the website says the following:  “If Audioslave initially was stitched together as something of an alternative rock Frankenstein—a renown singer joins a renown singerless-band—this monster now has a life of its own and Revelations puts that history into back-story. This album is full of experimentation and fresh direction, while at the same time it exudes the kind of poise that could only come from pedigreed-veterans of stadium tours. Not all of Revelations easily fits into the alternative rock pigeonhole, as several songs experiment with rhythmic change-ups. Some of the singing is soulful, there are songs that are funky, and others that are anthematic, though it all adds up to a powerhouse rock record.”
