Artist's Notes

I was listening to a lot of Chris Cornell's songs (solo, Soundgarden, Audioslave, etc) when I wrote this lyric so it was his voice that I had in my head when I wrote the lyric. Maybe his tragic end also contributed to the theme of the song.


Lyrics

 

Mercury's Rising

 


(Intro)

 

Have you ever felt like you're gonna fall?

 

I felt like I should fly

 


(Verse 1)

 

I put on my spacesuit

 

Said goodbye to my loved ones

 

I guess I'll be on the news

 

But it won't matter anyway

 


(Chorus)

 

Got a little too close to the sun today

 

Mercury's rising

 

Got a little close to the sun today

 

Mercury's rising

 

 

 

(Verse 2)

 

I climbed in my spaceship

 

Oh yeah

 

And then I battened down all the hatches

 

I took this bird for a spin

 

But it won't matter anyway

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

I got a little close to the sun today

 

Mercury's rising

 

Got a little too close to the sun today

 

Mercury's rising

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

I can see the light

 

Or is it the fire?

 

I guess I'm gonna find out soon enough

 

Climbing higher and higher,

 

Woah, crash landed

 

Smashed in a wall

 

Tried to fly

 

But I was destined to fall

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Got a little close to the sun today

 

Mercury's rising

 

Got a little too close to the sun today

 

Mercury's rising

 

 

 

(Outro)

 

Mercury?s rising
