I believe them bones are me
Some say we're born into the grave

I feel so alone, gonna end up a
Big ole pile a them bones

Dust rise right on over my time
Empty fossil of the new scene

I feel so alone, gonna wind up a
Big ole pile a them bones

Toll due bad dream come true
I lie dead gone under red sky

I feel so alone, gonna end up a
Big ole pile a them...
I feel so alone, gonna end up a
Big ole pile a them...
I feel so alone, gonna end up a
Big ole pile a them bones

    General Commentthis is what Layne said in a interview "the songs are about things that we were thinking and we wrote them down, and when u listen 2 them, whatever u think its about... THATS what its about!"

    General Commenthey "PLAYER1916" even though i think that quote does have some meaning to it, if u look at the whole interview, the whole band, including layne, were giving some what, sarcastic and just cut up answers.

    General CommentI spent a Year trying to find out what this song was when I heard it on the radio because the retarded local station doesnt like to name the songs they play.

    General CommentSo everyone knows, this song can be found on the Radio X station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

    Some damn good driving music IMO.
