Alice In Chains – Nutshell lyrics

We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

Oooh... Oooh...
Oooh... Oooh...

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead

Oooh... Oooh...
Oooh... Oooh...

    I'm pretty depressed at the moment(coming off of 8 15mg. Oxy's a day. And every time I get in the car, that song has to start my trip out. My life is a daily struggle, just as layne's was. No matter how much material things you have, or how successful you are, how many of you truly happy with life? Layne just wasn't allowed to be himself, so he would rather be dead. Wait till all of you "youngsters" turn 50, and now chase that path of time, what we could've and should've done, that time is past. Now where are you stuck at? How many of all of us(not just lane) can really cry to someone who understands, or how many of us cry alone?. And with people and friends and family and your kids moving all over the world, where is home? I hope layne, and john, and jimi, and janis and curt and everyone else who has suffered through this purgatory of life is in a better place. Are. I. P. Those we all have lost.

    Naw man. This song is about layne's life at that time. This song directly reminds me of the layne that left his life too early. I miss his perfect music. To all aic fans, we still have our band, but it can't be like this again. That depresses me more than this song. :( What a great artist. 27 :( and sista, we don't have to do it on our own. We have to have the will to reach out and seek help.
