Alice in Chains appreciation thread
    #4406077 - 07/15/05 12:47 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Written by Jerry Cantrell
All dreams have died along the way
I coughed up the price, I bought a cage
I've had a hell of a time since I went away
Don't know when I died or where to lay down
Gone, gone away
Yeah, gone, gone away
God knows I've tried, I'm dyed in pain
Strong yet simple drive, the freedom to say
I've had a hell of a time since I went away
Homing on traces of light, that distance fades
Repeat chorus
So they say with time we slowly heal
I caught a flash of your smile throught the fog of a dream
I'll have a hell of a time, I clearly see
I can't be by your side, I'll see you when I sleep
Now you're gone...gone away
Yeah you're gone...gone away


Yes with all Dead/Floyd threads I now deem it an appropriate time to start another AIC appreciation thread. For those who don't already have or haven't seen the AIC unplugged DVD I recomend your check it out as well as Jerry Cantrel;s new album. Thats all.

I loved and still love AIC:


Yeh, it goes away
All of this and more of nothing in my life
No color clay
Individuality not safe

As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong

I can?t let go
Threadbare tapestry unwinding slow
Feel a tortured brain
Show your belly like you want me to

As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong

I haven?t felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love
That don?t last forever
Something?s gotta turn out right

You sugar taste
Sweetness doesn?t often touch my face
Stay if you please
You may not be here when I leave

As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure we reach for something strong

I haven?t felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love
Strong, I haven?t felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love
T hat don?t last forever
Something?s gotta turn out right
:peace: :spirit:

Yeah that was a really cool song. It seemed to have alot of cooperation between jerry and layne. I like how they each alternated vocals on that.

MMHMMM! And god how I loved the sound of Layne, in anything. And they were such a solid sound to me. That hit me like a rock when I found out he died.:nonono: That was a horrible loss. I still have a feeling of great sadness when I'm listening to songs like this one:


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
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, 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
So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up, but You're not blind
You're just see through faded, overrated
And out of your mind

AIC...words can't descibe my feelings towards them.

I knew them. :smile:

I first met Layne when he was with the band called Sleze.

When Jerry Cantrell and Layne Staley hooked up...it was Magic!~

Sue Silver was AIC's manager...she lived a block down the street from me growing up...her brother was one of my playmates.
She is married to Chris Cornell...of Soundgarden and Audio Slave fame.
I partied with AIC, Soundgarden and several other local bands and got to know them.
I used to listen to some of them play in the studio and in some of the Seattle clubs.
It was a wonderful time in my life.

The King County Medical Examiner positively identified Layne's body on Saturday (April 20), following an autopsy.
April 20th is my birthday...it was a terrible day to say the least.

Please visit the Layne Staley Fund site... http://www.laynestaleytribute.com/index.html

my favorite AIC song...

Down In A Hole

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 Won't Let Himself Be

Down In A Hole, Losin' My Soul
Down In A Hole, Losin' Control
I'd Like To Fly
But My Wings Have Been So Denied

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

Oh I Want To Be Inside Of You

Down In A Hole, Losin' My Soul
Down In A Hole, Feelin' So Small
Down In A Hole, Losin' My Soul
Down In A Hole, Out Of Control

I'd Like To Fly
But My Wings Have Been So Denied



Rest in Peace Layne!~

I know it will never be AIC but does anyone care for any of Jerry Cantrells solo works?

I love both albums of Cantrell's. Especially Degradation Trip double album. Its got some really really great songs on it.

But, yeah, AIC, amazing band. I dont listen to them as much as I used to since I got into electronic music, but I still put on Dirt every few months.

If I could, would you?

I still very frequently listen to AIC MTV Unplugged. These guys were amazing.

I bought a bunch of CD's, not having an AIC CD I thought I'd buy Dirt. That CD is terrible. Honestly, I dont mean to sound disrespectful even though that may be what I am doing, but what exactly do you like about them?

I hear the word "amazing" mentioned about them a lot...from what I heard it sounded pretty generic. I'll put on the CD right now to see if I can hear what I didnt hear before :P

his solo records put faith back in me for a hope of a new guitar wave :/

sounds cheesy, and even though technically cantrell may not be a randy rhodes, he's one of the best IMO. alice in chains.. damn. dirt's been in the case for too long.. time to break it out
