Fell on Black Days
“Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life. Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life.”
“Fell on Black days” is a song by Soundgarden with lyrics written by lead singer Chris Cornell. In the song, he describes the unexpected and painful fall from normalcy into depression, and his wish for that time to change. As a teenager, Cornell fought against severe depression and social anxiety, using music as a therapeutic means to face his demons.

I really believe what he signifies by this song is that once you find happiness it really isn’t what you expect or you realize there is still something missing that you desire.
