I don't wanna feel no more
It's easier to keep falling
Imitations are pale
Emptiness all tomorrows
Haunted by your ghost

Lay down, black gives way to blue
Lay down, I'll remember you

Fading out by design
Consciously avoiding changes
Curtains drawn now it's done
Silencing all
Tommorows Forcing a goodbye

Lay down, black gives way to blue
Lay down, I'll remember you...

    I've always stated that cantrell is a genius. Except for the music, he's the only songwriter in this world who can be so accurate, deep and realistic that sometimes becomes a little raw and cynical. He always expresses the deepest, the darkest thoughts, the ones that hurt the most. I've found myself crying to this song several times.. This is the beauty of music.. And i'm really sad that layne is gone.. May his and mike's souls rest in peace.. Miss you, guys

    I'm sorry but this song makes me cry every time i hear it. A friend of mine who was addicted to drugs took his life on ny's eve. He is so missed by all who loved him. Noboy knew the extent of his drug use, the way his family was abusing him or how desperate he was.

    Write my meaning to the song: it mean's ; great loss, grief, pain. Hell it is still painful. My son was born a few months after layne died and was going to name him after layne, but my father unexpectedly died a few months later. We named him after my father, but i wear my layne tribute everyday on my skin. I will die with it. Aic fan forever.

    I would have loved to have watched them perform this song last Thursday (10/22) when I took in their show. Instead, the boys did an extended version of "Nutshell" that had an extended solo. After the song was finished, Jerry appeared in the red stage light and stated, "That was for Layne", which brought huge cheers from the crowd. R.I.P. Layne. Great show, great fucking band. ALICE IN CHAINS ARE BACK!!!
