@ALBUM: Facelift Artist: Alice in Chains 1990 Columbia Records ------------------------------- @SONG: We Die Young (Jerry Cantrell) Scary's on the wal Scary's on the wall Watch where you spit I'd advise you wait until it's over Then you got hit And you shoulda known better CHORUS And we die young Faster we run Down, down, down you're rollin' Watch the blood float in the muddy sewer Take another hit And bury your brother CHORUS Scary's on the wall Scary's on the wall Another alley trip Bullet seek the place to bend you over Then you got hit And you shoulda known better CHORUS -------------------------------------------------- @SONG: Man in the Box (Jerry Cantrell/Layne Staley) I'm the man in the box Buried in my shit Won't you come and save me, save me CHORUS Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut? Jesus Christ, deny your maker He who tries, will be wasted Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut I'm the dog who gets beat Shove my nose in shit Won't you come and save me, save me CHORUS --------------------------------------------- @SONG: Sea of Sorrow (Jerry Cantrell) Mind, of destructive taste I choose...to stroll amongst the waste That was your heart Lost in the dark Call off the chase Walls of thought, strong and high As my castle crumbles with time... I think of you Oh, yes I do Such a crime CHORUS You opened fire...and your mark was true You opened fire...aim my smilin' skull at you You opened fire... I live tomorrow, you I'll not follow As you wallow in a sea of sorrow Lines cut across my face Why you laugh at my disgrace I'll never know How far to go To reach that place CHORUS ------------------------------------------------------ @SONG: Bleed the Freak (Jerry Cantrell) My cup runnet over Like blood from a stone CHORUS These stand for me Name your god and bleed the freak I like to see How you all would bleed for me When the pig runs slower Let the arrow fly When the sin lies bolder I'll pluck out thine eye CHORUS If you scorn my lover Satan got your thigh If you steal in hunger I will kick you when you try CHORUS --------------------------------------- @SONG: I Can't Remember (Jerry Cantrell/Layne Staley) Turn around you say 'Scuse the 'tude but I haven't eaten today And my eyes are turning grey What's your name? CHORUS I can't remember...I can't remember Bring me down you try Feel the pain and keep it all in till you die Without eyes you cannot cry Who's to blame? CHORUS Remember identity, the visions in my mind from Screamin' at me And mama, mama, ooh...my angry brains of infancy Knocked down but I have enough hate to breathe, down your throat and steal your energy You took everyting but my will to be Now the loss of your god won't make me bleed I am alive --------------------------------------------------------- @SONG: Love, Hate, Love (Jerry Cantrell/Layne Staley) I tried to love you I thought I could I tried to own you I thought I would I want to peel the skin from your face Before the real you lays to waste You told me I'm the only one Sweet little angel you should have run Lying, crying, dying to leave Innocence creates my hell Cheating myself still you know more It would be so easy with a whore Try to understand me little girl My twisted passion to be your world Lost inside my sick head I live for you but I'm not alive Take my hand before I kill Still love you, I still burn Love, hate, love ------------------------------------------------ @SONG: It Ain't Like That (Jerry Cantrell/Michael Starr/Sean Kinney) There I was, laid out on a table Screamin' sweat and bare feet to the floor In my life, I'd not soften Things that cut, and burn so often But I sit, think of somethin' Scared to face, the dyin' nothin' CHORUS See the cycle I've waited for It ain't like that anymore Where I go is when I feel I'm able How I fight is why I'm feelin' sore In my sight, not forgotten Feel as though, a tooth were rotten Behind the smile, a tongue that's slippin' Buzzards cry, when flesh is rippin' CHORUS Here I sit writing on the paper Trying to make the words you can't ignore In my mind, what I'm lacking Score at face, a ten for slacking Sign the deal, set in motion Smaller fish, so huge the ocean CHORUS ---------------------------------------------------- @SONG: Sunshine (Jerry Cantrell) Am I too contagious Full of sick desire Am I that I promise Burning corpsed pyre Then some dude came down to touch the Mother Mother touched, and dude ain't here no more Am I your reflection Melting mirror smile Am I worth the value Do my love defile Then some dude came down to touch the Mother Mother touched and dude ain't here no more Ain't no day the sun don't crack Try brand some name across my back so you care? Find someone to tell you CHORUS Sunshine...sweet love my labor Don't mind...I don't care no more Can you face the queston? Is my soul entire?
