Layne Staley// Alice In Chains// Best Performances

“No matter who was in the room, I noticed this, everybody would always look at Layne. People wouldn’t even know who he was, and they’d go, “Wow, who is that guy?” You know? He just had this energy about him, and this very compelling thing about him.”- Mike Inez

My pain is self-chosen
At least, so The Prophet says
I could either burn
Or cut off my pride and buy some time
A head full of lies is the weight, tied to my waist

The River of Deceit pulls down, oh oh
The only direction we flow is down
Down, oh down (x4)

My pain is self-chosen
At least I believe it to be
I could either drown
Or pull off my skin and swim to shore
Now I can grow a beautiful shell for all to see

The River of Deceit pulls down, yeah
The only direction we flow is down
Down, oh down (x4)

The pain is self-chosen, yeah
Our pain is self-chosen
