"Chip Away" as written by Perry Farrell, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins and Eric Adam Avery....
I chip away
Cause I'm not OK
So I
I chip away
Poked a hole right into myself
And inside I found someone
Who said I was O.K.
Still I don't feel easy

On this tree
Among the blossoms
I am the thorn
Close my eyes to take up spare time
I wish I just
Could be where the crowd goes
With the crowd
They must be going somewhere

Up from the catacombs
I ran into the angel again
He took the high road
And I took the low road
We both were dirty faces
We both were dirty faces

I don't
I don't
I don't
Don't feel easy
I don't
I don't
I don't
Don't feel easy

    General CommentI think it is pretty obvious that it is about shooting heroin and the feelings of isolation that it sometimes leads to.

    I love this song, it has such a dark feel.
