Calling your new record “Common Era” takes guts – especially if, merely years before, you were the figurehead of the greatest band on the planet. Circa 2002’s ‘Songs For The Deaf’, Queens – then flame-haired brute savant Josh Homme, naked berserker bassist Nick Oliveri, Neanderthal drummer Dave Grohl and walking cadaver Mark Lanegan – wore that crown with both pride and menace....

Young, dumb, don't see a problem
Bloodshot, stare like a hoodlum
Simple as this, I'm in love with the risk
I know what I've done but tell me what did I miss?
Fast approaching monsters
Marching in a row
Grab what slips your mind
And what your memory won't hold
I'm gonna suture up my future
I ain't jaded, I just hate it
See, I been down too long
It's kinda hard to explain
Lie, lie to my face
Tell me it ain't nothing
That's what I wanna hear
You wanna know if I know why
I can't say that I do
Don't understand the evil eye
Or how one becomes two
Make you into dark
Straight into your heart
Sorry, all you are
I don't really care
Wanna see my past in flames
Don't waste a drop, baby, I ain't fussed
Where I was born, no escape
There, there ain't even no good bad drugs
Avoir, adieu, goodnight
I'm too wrong to get right
But I can't wait forever
My generation's for sale, beats a steady job
How much have you got?
My generation don't trust no one
It's hard to blame, not even ourselves
You got a question? Please don't ask
It puts the lotion in the basket
You say bigger's better but bigger's bigger
White boy dressed up like a figure
When I was young
We used to play the game of hide and seek
Someone go hide, I count to ten
