Description

"Hunger Strike" is a song by the American rock band Temple of the Dog. Written by vocalist Chris Cornell, "Hunger Strike" was released in 1991 as the first single from the band's sole studio album, Temple of the Dog (1991). It was Temple of the Dog's most popular song. The song peaked at number four on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Temple of the Dog was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. It was conceived by vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The line-up included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, Jeff Ament on bass guitar (both ex-members of Mother Love Bone), Mike McCready on lead guitar, Matt Cameron on drums and Eddie Vedder providing lead and backing vocals.

The band released its only album, the self-titled Temple of the Dog, in April 1991 through A&M Records. Although earning praise from music critics at the time of its release, the album was not widely recognized until 1992, when Vedder, Ament, Gossard and McCready had their commercial breakthrough with Pearl Jam.

"Hunger Strike" Lyrics 
================== 
I don't mind stealing bread 
From the mouths of decadence 
But I can't feed on the powerless 
When my cup's already overfilled 
Yeah 
But it's on the table 
The fire's cooking 
And they're farming babies 
While slaves are working 
The blood is on the table 
Their mouths are choking 
But I'm going hungry, yeah 

I don't mind stealing bread 
From the mouths of decadence 
But I can't feed on the powerless 
When my cup's already overfilled 
Ah, um 
But it's on the table 
The fire's cooking 
And they're farming babies 
While the slaves are all working 
And it's on the table 
Their mouths are choking 
But I'm going hungry (going hungry) 
I'm going hungry (going hungry) 
I'm going hungry (going hungry) 
I'm going hungry (going hungry) 
(Guitar solo) 
I'm going hungry (going hungry) 
I'm going hungry (going hungry) 

Yeah I don't mind stealing bread 
Ooh I don't mind 
No I don't mind stealing bread, yeah 
I'm going hungry (going hungry) 
I'm going hungry (going hungry), yeah!
