Alice In Chains – Down In A Hole lyrics

[Verse 1]
Bury me softly in this womb
I give this part of me for you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
In a tomb... In bloom

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who wont let himself be

[Chorus]
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
I'd like to fly,
But my wings have been so denied

[Verse 2]
Down in a hole and they've put all
The stones in their place
I've eaten the sun so my tongue
Has been burned of the taste
I have been guilty
Of kicking myself in the teeth
I will speak no more
Of my feelings beneath

[Chorus]
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
I'd like to fly but my
Wings have been so denied

[Verse 3]
Bury me softly in this womb
Oh I want to be inside of you
I give this part of me for you
Oh I want to be inside of you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers (oh I want to be inside of you)
In a tomb... In bloom
Oh I want to be inside...

[Chorus]
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, outta control
I'd like to fly but my
Wings have been so denied

    This song is about the "loss of faith" in ones ability to be forgiven by God. He expresses the feelings of self doubt due to his short comings and faliures in his spiritual direction, and even though he wants to be inside his lords embrace (womb) he feels lowly and undiserving of forgivness because he has constantly turned back to the life that would eventualy take him back down in his hole.
