Alice in Chains Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Grind (4:45)
In the darkest hole
you'd be well advised
Not to plan my funeral before the
body dies, yeah

Come the morning light
it's a see through show
What you may have heard and
what you think you know, yeah

Let the sun never blind your eyes
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Hear a sound from a voice inside

Sure to play a part
so you love the game
And in truth your lies
become one and same, yeah

I could set you free,
rather hear the sound
Of your body breaking
as I take you down, yeah

Let the sun never blind your eyes
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Hear a sound from a voice inside

In the darkest hole
you'd be well advised
Not to plan my funeral
before the body dies, yeah

Let the sun never blind your eyes
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Hear a sound from a voice inside
2. Brush Away (3:22)
I could use some
time to curl away
My aggression
is where you stake
your claim
Why I question
this curve on which you grade
My conception
a joke or latest craze?

I try to get away
and yet I stick around
So fall and crawl away
and brush away loose ground

My intention
Can I arrive at eight?
Lie and dream some
Surprise you guys I'm late
All right, correction, forgetting something
Wait

I try to get away
and yet I stick around
So fall and crawl away
and brush away loose ground

Brush away loose ground
Brush away loose ground
3. Sludge Factory (7:12)
You insult me in my home
you're forgiven this time
Things go well, your eyes dilate
you shake, and I'm high?
Look in my eyes deep and watch
the clouds change with time
20 hours won't print
my picture milk carton size
Carton size
carton size

Call me up congratulations
ain't the real why
There's no pressure besides brilliance
let's say by day 9
Endless corporate ignorance lets
me control time
By the way, by the way, by the way

Once again you see an in
discolored skin gives you away
So afraid you kindly gurgle, out a date
for me

Now the body of one soul I adore
wants to die
You have always told me you'd
not live past 25
I say stay long enough to repay
all who cause strife

Once again you see an in
discolored skin gives you away
So afraid you kindly gurgle out a date
for me
4. Heaven Beside You (5:27)
Be what you wanna be
See what you came to see
Been what you wanna be
I don't like what I see

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Put Heaven beside you
Hell within
And you think you have it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up
and I'm not blind
I'm just see-through
faded
super jaded
And out of my mind

Do what you wanna do
Go out and seek your truth
When I'm down and blue
Rather be me than you

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you wish you had it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up
and I'm not blind
I'm just see-through
faded
overrated
super jaded
And out of my mind

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you know you have it still, heaven inside you
5. Head Creeps (6:29)
No more time
Just one more time

So crazy, beat the strain
Too lazy, shake the gray
So, and she willed the rain
So let me be defamed
Your redundancy stains
Tired of infantile claims
Like puppets on a string
Untangle you from me

Time to call the doggies off
Tired of the shadowin'
Slide me to the side again
Slapped in the face again

No more time
Just one more time

Your redundancy stains
Tired of infantile claims
Like puppets on a string
Untangle you from me
So crazy, beat the strain
Too lazy, shake the gray
So, and she willed the rain
So let me be defamed

Time to call the doggies off
Tired of the shadowin'
Slide me to the side again
Slapped in the face again

One day my plane leaves
Some way my head creeps
Some day my head leads
Some way my head creeps

No more time
Just one more time

Empty room sets the scene
Pick at me slow, pain fiend
Suck me through barbed screen
Anger becomes our queen
Tongue whipping forked black
How long until you crack
Surprised and set back
Lackeys' loose talk for fact

Time to call the doggies off
Tired of the shadowin'
Slide me to the side again
Slapped in the face again

One day my plane leaves
Some way my head creeps
Some day my head leads
Some way my head creeps
Creeps

No more time
Just one more time

So crazy feel the hate
Yeah, I've got years to wait
I know it's not too late
Lending clean hands of fate
Rise from the dirt I'm in
Hide in another's skin
Stick black dress doll with pin
Your mouth takes on my grin
6. Again (4:05)
Hey
let them do it again, yeah
Yeah
you said you were my friend

Hey
turn me upside down
Hey
feelin' so down
Hey
Hey

You made a fool of me again
Again

Hey
I know I made the same mistake
I
I won't do it again, no
Why
Why you slap me in the face, oww
I
I didn't say it was OK, no
No
No

You violate a part of me again
Again

Hey
you had time to think it out, yeah
Hey,
Your weak will won't help her heal her heart
Hey
I'll bet it really eats you up

Extending part of me again
Again
7. Shame in You (5:35)
When I waken
and I'm achin'
time for sleepin, yeah

When I'm sayin
time to go and
I've been hurtin, yeah

When I'm layin
I'm still tryin
concentrating on dyin', yeah

You're right as rain
but you're all to blame
Agreed my crime's the same
My sins I'll claim
give you back shed pain
Go find a place for own shame
Yeah
So you can deal
with this thing unreal
No one made you feel any hurt
yeah

Body's movin
only provin
no one needs to move

Still believin
yet mistaken
all God's children, yeah

And I must say
I was stupid
selfishly she consumed, yeah

And you must change
patterns all we trained
Or n'er regain peace you seek
Now you hear me
for the things I see
Yeah, I believe in inner peace, yeah

Throw out
blow up
hold in

Show fine
no signs
grow blind
8. God Am (4:08)
Dear God, how have you been then?
I'm not fine, fuck pretending
All of this death your sending
Best throw some free heart mending

Invite you in my heart, then
When done, my sins forgiven?
This God of mine relaxes
World dies I still pay taxes

Can I be as my God am
Can you be as God am
Can I be as my God am
God of all my God am

So Lord, I see you grinnin
Must be grand always winning
How proud are you being able
To gather faith from fable

Can I be as my God am
Can you be as God am
Can I be as my God am
God of all my God am
God am
My God am
God am
God

All the respect I'm giving
Shared strength acquired by living
All blooming life you're feeding
Can't hide sick ones you're weeding

Can I be as my God am
Can you be as God am
Can I be as my God am
God of all my God am
God am
God am
God am
God am
9. So Close (2:45)
Why are here again?
It's the same old sit down roll around
chewed up pen

Nothin thrilling me too much, yeah
Nothin thrilling me

Yeah, so close now
Yeah, so close now

Man I nearly snapped my twig
Then again I nearly snapped
a few of you

So I hear you think highly now
So I hear you think

Yeah, so close now
Yeah, so close now

Why?
10. Nothin' Song (5:40)
Began this take at 7:38
Head hit the board enough that it aches
Wonder should I be working so late
Began this take at 7:38
Head hit the board, enough that it aches
Wonder should I be working so late
Wonder should I be working so late
Began this take at 7:38
Head hit the board, enough that it aches
Wonder should I be working so late
Wonder should I be working so late

Well the nothin song sticks to your mouth
Like peanut butter on the brain
Nothin ever stays the same
Nothin
yeah nothin
nothin
nothin

Went outside to give all a break
Wearing cowhide, steak on a skate
Back inside, Sam throw away your cake
Went outside to give all a break
Went outside to give all a break
Wearing cowhide, steak on a skate
Back inside Sam throw away your cake
Back inside Sam throw away your cake

Well the nothin song sticks to your mouth
Like peanut butter on the brain
Nothin ever stays the same
Nothin
yeah nothin
nothin
nothin

Gotta finish so I can awake
Feed the cat as she spreads all the waste
Snap her neck or trade in for new make
Gotta finish so I can awake
Feed the cat as she spreads all the waste
Snap her neck or trade in for new make
Snap her neck or trade in for new make

Well the nothin song sticks to your mouth
Like peanut butter on the brain
Nothin ever stays the same
Well the nothin song sticks to your mouth
11. Frogs (8:18)
What does friend mean to you?
A word so wrongfully abused
Are you like me, confused
All included but you
Alone...

The sounds of silence often soothe
Shapes and colors shift with mood
Pupils widen and change their hue
Rapid brown avoid clear blue

Why's it have to be this way
Be this way

Flowers watched through wide
brown eyes
A child sings an unclaimed tune
Innocence spins cold cocoon
Grow to see the pain too soon

Why's it have to be this way
Be this way
12. Over Now (7:03)
Yeah, it's over now
but I can breathe somehow
When it's all worn out
I'd rather go without

You know its been on my mind
Could you stand right there
Look me straight in the eye and say
That it's over now

We pay our debt sometime

Well it's over now
yet I can see somehow
When its all gone wrong
it's hard to be so strong

You know its been on my mind
Could you stand right there
Look me straight in the eye and say
That it's over now

We pay our debt sometime

Guess it's over now
I seem alive somehow
When it's out of sight
just wait and do your time

You know its been on my mind
Could I stand right here
Look myself in the eye and say
That it's over now

We pay our debt sometime
