Lanegan, Mark - Burning Jacob's Ladder Lyrics




Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat's off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

Tears are harbored
Down to the thorny altar
I'm afraid I might fade away

It's to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There's a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob's ladder
I'm afraid I might fade away

It's to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There's a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

It's to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There's a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

Rage untethered
The soul a stony desert
I'm afraid I might fade away

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat's off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob's ladder
I'm afraid I might fade away

    Rage Ending <3

  10. Charles Loose

    Fuck.....is there a cooler human being in the world? Maybe Greg Dulli? Tom Waits? Shit...mind blown.

  11. Chris Ricciardiello

    All search for redemption in the dust of the earth. Jacob's Ladder = connection between heaven and this realm.

  12. Prince Kalender

    My grandma's surname is Koutsoukos, she came from Chrysokellaria in Greece, in Messenia. Do you have something to do with them? Greetings from Argentina!

  13. Jack M

    The memories. Rage 2 better encapsulate this feeling.

    1231231232972

    rage2 will encapsulate only feeling being high on speed

    Jack M

    @1231231232972 update: it was shit and just wanted to be borderlands. Sigh. :(

    Victorias Fried Chicken

    if you are into lanegan you absolutely have to listen to the gravedigger's song, or go back a couple years and get methamphetamine blues. not like desert emptiness, but trust me...

    ichabod

    Josh Ritter, "Rattlin' Your Locks" and a piece used under the credits for a UK series called "Safe", by somebody whose name I can't remember, but it's darkly gorgeous and fierce, too.

  43. pimprenelle de nyons

    Merveilleux

  44. damballa900

    One of my favorite Lanegan tunes that's for sure... absoutely
    gorgeous... you don't often hear this man scream... but when he does,
    it's delicious...

  45. pimprenelle de nyons

    Magique

  46. MalcolmRandall

    Man that was a shitty ass ending.

    Jack M

    it really was like holy fuck where's the closure

  47. Hanzistorr Hanz

    W8 this was not in Blues Funeral album... or theres a version i dont know about ? Thx to this song i got to Lanegans music :)

  48. Letzter Willy

    6 stinky fingers!

  49. Frodo Kilminstermein

    One of the best songs I have ever heard. Resonates.

  50. Dexgeta.

    Fantasic music

  51. Anthony Stephen Mendes

    Am I the only one who searched this song on the internet when the WWE used it for some Undertaker promo?

    mat11trick

    Undertaker porno? Ewwww.

    anonymousSWE

    Ooooh, look at me, I have standards.

  52. Marco Calvo

    rage, silent hill & breaking bad ;)

  53. Munitia Blastpaw

    This song makes me feel a certain emotion...much like anger, but far more intense, nearly blinding.

    Oh, if only there was a word for such a thing!

    akram85s

    +Munitia Blastpaw Rage?

    tom jacobs

    +Munitia Blastpaw how about "Revenge"

    Francisco C

    +Munitia Blastpaw power

    watermelons r awesome probably

    rage (you are probably talking about the video game)

    Manniacc

    lmao at the people who didn't get it

  54. NihilusArchon

    ΓΕΙΑ ΣΟΥ ΡΕ ΜΠΟΡΑΤΣΟ ΜΕΡΑΚΛΗ

  55. Pastorelli Roberta

    Can't believe it I have never listened him before this man is amazing...real artist..

    Shruggz Da Str8-Faced Clown

    If you haven't already (3 yrs. have gone by since you posted this comment, I see), check out his work with his original band, Screaming Trees -- especially the early albums before they signed to a major label (with 1990's "Uncle Anesthesia")

  56. keith hilton

    Glad to think at 59 years of age I can still appreciate music like this!

  57. cloudybongwater

    you have to love it !!

  58. tom jacobs

    Mark is just simply one of the most compelling singers I have ever heard.  Almost every song he sings is epic to me.  I marvel at his stuff.  This song is nothing short of brilliant to me.

  59. Steven Bailey

    Hes come along way since his Screaming Trees dayz. Wish they would reform.....oh well.

    Daren Redman

    That would be cool.

    jmp352

    yeah well, they are doing their own thing ie: valis, microdot gnome and Gary Lee Conner, who just released an album.

  60. Paula

    The beggining sounds a little like Can't Come Down from Bubblegum 

  61. MultiSweetGaming

    Breaking Bad and Rage :D

    Jared Richarte

    @MultiSweetGaming Would you like to see a continuation of Rage?

    angakks1

    +MultiSweetGaming I disovered this music in the conclusion of Rage, it was an epic ending for this game, and a magnificient discovery for me.

    Jervis Tetch Yousician

    Wait... was this in breaking bad?

    Rabie Alkurba

    @Jervis Tetch Yousician i don't think so

  62. xerxes mabrielos

    when did it play on breaking bad?

    DenizBlaster

    I think some episode in season 4.

  63. Artur G

    Why wasn't it finally incuded on Blues Funeral? Big mistake! It would be one of the best album tracks! Also sad it was neved performed live on concert.

    Kamil Groń

    It was perfomed live in 2011 in Hollywood (Fields Of The Departed.)

    Victorias Fried Chicken

    totally agree with you. blues funeral is in my top 3 since beginning of 2012, when it came out. one of the most epic and compelling albums ive heard in my life (just out of curiosity, the other 2 albums are "shadows collide with people" by john frusciante and ex equo "blur" by blur and "californication" by rhcp). i had to buy the single lp of gravedigger's song to get this song, which is also slightly differently arranged, especially the intro. i think this is the version straight from the videogame, which i honestly like a lil better.

  64. PureSalem Guitars

    Fantastic ....

  65. MrLazynko

    Breaking Bad

  66. cliff jumper

    Wow. Great song. I have never heard this song before. And yet another rare Mark Lanegan song.

  67. LichMan67

    This song is awesome

  68. J.K. Ellis

    I'm here from the Breaking Bad soundtrack...

  69. ademafreak81

    RAGE is such an awesome game, it's too bad it was so short. Great song too, couldn't get it out of my head after playing.

  70. csl316

    I have this mp3 saved on my desktop, and I think I've heard it hundreds of times before going to bed at this point. So damn good, such a powerful build.

  71. Swanee-Shore

    This song is fantastic!

  72. firefoxmoz

    This song and John Goodman were the only good things about Rage

  73. David Oneill

    why was this left of the album it would have been the killer tune the back ground sounds like ennio morriconie he would be proud off

  74. HUNK

    I'm glad Rage brought me here. I I don't see why people complain that the ending was bad. In case players have forgotten Its the journey, not the destination.

  75. Dragonhypbrid

    I don't know, I rather enjoyed the game, except the part about the very small amount of checkpoints. Song's still epic though.

  76. Andrew Mattock

    The game ran great on my intel i5 quad core CPU and Asus HD 6950 GPU set up. This track at the end, though, was something of a bonus

  77. cr0wbar

    Agreed.

  78. Evgeny Dan

    really?? my computer is slow, but it ran smoothly. of course i kept the benchmark settings though.

  79. Holden McGroin

    My issue was a video card problem...the game was great but the ending was horrible.

  80. Evgeny Dan

    dont know about you but i really liked it.

  81. Luis Sanchez

    I am here just because i wanted to found the credits song from Jacob's Leadder...

    WELP

  82. Spider Gorgon

    i was gonna say exactly that .. oh well ...i guess i got nothin to say

  83. Sinreven

    Weather I'm in my dune buster.rat rod buggy or my cuprino I turn this on while I'm wandering and it brings me confermation in a way

  84. Amaury M

    Where can I find the picture of this clip please ? =)

  85. 2Teedee

    Great song, fits perfectly to Rage's Wastelands

  86. John Holmes

    Am playing Rage again, new DLC don't ya know :-)

  87. Shawn ManyGreyHorses

    burn burn burn

  88. Nathan Edwards

    Raaaaaage! This song made me want to play the game again! who else?

  89. tom jacobs

    Whether it's a movie, show, or game that brings people here, it doesnt matter. But the fact is....Mark is a awesome, major talent. Screaming Trees, QOTSA, or his solo stuff is all primo! I learned of him with "Nearly Lost You", Screaming Trees days, and have been a fan ever since. Love it!!

  90. Şafak D.

    It's owesome but not very famous :D not even 100000 watches

  91. Monde

    He was already famous in early 90s fyi.

  92. Ionut Burte

    FARCRY!

  93. Kyle Bugg

    No, not at all; I listen to Mark Lanegan because of Queens of the Stone Age

  94. Şafak D.

    Did RAGE make him famous or what .D How many are from Rage ? :D

  95. GRUNGERBOI

    MARK LANEGAN IS THE ONLY REASON I PLAYED RAGE

  96. GhANeC

    Rage, is key word here, as you may imagine...
