You're a prince, you're a snare, you're a shadow You're twilight and star burn and shade You're a sage, you're a wound shared, you're masked You're a pillar of smoke, you're a platinum heart You're a brush fire, you're caged, you're free Your vision pierces, you do not see You are pieces strewn on the hillside You're open armed, you're armed, you're true You're a revealer of visions, you're the passenger, you're a never fading scar You're twilight and star burn and shade You're the secret veiled, you're the secret revealed, you're surrounded no more You're not there, now you're always here Youre a handsome groom, a loving father, a haunted stairwell You're the clear bell ringing, the mountains echo your song Maybe no one has ever known you You are twilight and star burn and shade

Audioslave will be reuniting as part of Prophets Of Rage’s “Anti-Inaugural Ball,” which they put together to protest Donald Trump‘s U.S. presidential inauguration on January 20. The event will be held at at the Teragram Ballroom, and will also feature: Vic Mensa, Jackson Browne, Jack Black and The Los Angeles Freedom Choir. Prophets Of Rage commented:

“The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create “No Trump Zones” across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”
