Sea of Lost Memories by RickGriffin Sea of Lost Memories by RickGriffin
Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

I'm actually on the edge of crying... the picture, the vibes it sends... then the description hit me. What a kick to the nuts. That did me in, honestly. I love Soundgarden, they are a huge inspiration to me. And the way that those lyrics are now represented through this picture... just like, whoa man, my heart can take so much. This is beautiful. The whole thing as a whole and in its parts, it's a masterpiece. Just... wow, serious feelings suddenly rose up that I didn't know existed in me anymore. I needed a good cry. Thank you.

(Damn, I miss Chris.. what a dude. That phrase is more and more true... "No one sings like you anymore"... I mean... *imitates explosions* my brain doesn't even comprehend, man....)

Now is near.
Been with friends.
Take away my fear.
The black hole son.
Is coming here.
Good buy my friends I love you, dear."

Toward farther shores, and brightest skies, we all mourn the loss. But in the end, either foe or friend, we'll see each other again.

I really love the craftsmanship in this picture. The way you've done the water and the effects in the sky and just how right those reflected lights look is incredible to me! The emotions in the characters just look beautiful as well, even if I don't entirely understand the meaning. It looks sort of like they're sending spirits off of the dearly departed, but perhaps I'm reading into it too deeply. Excellent job with this!

I woke the same as any other day, except a voice was in my head.
It said, "Seize the day! Pull the trigger! Drop the blade and watch the rolling heads!"
The day I tried to live, I stole a thousand beggar's change and gave it to the rich.
The day I tried to win, I dangled from the power lines and left for morning stretch.
Singin', "one more time around might do it. One more time around might make it. One more time around might do it. One more time around might make it."
The day I tried to live.

Thankfully It's RickGriffin. I haven't seen all of his art, But he tends to be tasteful rather than awful.
He is the maker of the Housepets! webcomic.

In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
'Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I'll hear you scream again
Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun

This scene is pretty sad loved ones who vanish in the cosmos, nothing left here to remind of them, once they're gone, there is just the few remaining memories to try to fulfil the emptiness left by their absence

The irony is the Cornell in Soundgarden has pretty much said the lyrics were little more than gibberish that sounded good with no deeper meaning, but had a catchy hook in the chorus.

Also, there's various versions out there, some with more or less of the CGI thrown in. Try and find them all! :D
