someone said my words are out of balance
nothing to say, you've got nothing to say
dying words I bury everyday
nothing to say, I've got nothing to say
nothing but the one thing

you've got nothing, nothing to say
nothing but the one thing

big bad word spell it with four letters
nothing to say, you've got nothing to say
oh my God, your words are out of balance
nothing to say, you've got nothing to say
nothing but the one thing
nothing, nothing

you've got nothing, nothing to say
nothing but the one thing

nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

b- side to "Hunted Down" (Soundgarden's first single, released as a blue vinyl 7" limited edition of 500 on Sub Pop in 1987), "Nothing To Say" marked the first time Kim Thayil ever used the now-ubiquitous dropped-D tuning on his guitar. As he says in Guitar Player magazine, "I had been talking to Buzz of the Melvins, and he was telling me about a tuning he was getting into. He showed me how you could play a single-finger power chord and move it around real easily, and I showed it to Chris and Hiro." Chris Cornell added the lyrics for the song. It later appeared on the band's first EP, Screaming Life and of course, on the Sub Pop CD reissue of that EP and Fopp in 1990. "Nothing To Say" was a staple of Soundgarden's shows until recent years, when it was discarded in favor of newer tunes; it did, however, make a lone appearance at the end of the 1996 U.S. tour...
