Everything you heard I did and maybe then some, ok
Does it make you happy and now is it out of the way?
Everything you heard I done and probably then some, ok
Does it really matter, of course I took it all the way

What more can I say

Locked on-what's the deal?
Faded rock star, push and needle
You don't know, well that's alright
You do your thing, I'll live my life

Every word is true, baby, I won't deny
Don't you push me over, I ain't even finished my ride
Every word you read is true and maybe that is a lie
Strap session closing and I'm going out of my mind

What more can I say

Locked on-what's the deal?
Faded rock star, push and needle
You don't know, well that's alright
You do your thing, I'll live my life

Every song I wrote I meant what I said at the time
Yeah, I spent some time looking death right in the eye
Every song I wrote I captured a fragment of time
Dying a little bit makes you appreciate life

Nothing more to say

Locked on-what's the deal?
Faded rock star, push and needle
You don't know, well that's alright
You do your thing, I'll live my life

Locked on-what's the deal?
Faded rock star, push and needle
You don't know, well that's alright
You do your thing, I'll live my life

Locked on
Locked on

    General Commenti totally agree that this song is about layne. 100% about layne. just listen/read the lyrics, it's SO obvious. about their "falling out" and what jerry may have said about layne and his addiction. it's a sad song in my opinion. the whole things sucks, i wish layne could come back and AiC could rock again.

    My InterpretationLayne Staley through and through. basically it's jerry saying what he has to say to layne about his addiction and wanting to move past all of that. it's a shame heroin had to get the better of the greatest singer of all-time in my personal opinion. but the original Alice In Chains tunes will live forever.

    General Commentits simply about him admitting to the drug abuse and just saying that he doesn't care what others think because he's gonna live his life for himself and nobody else

    General CommentYes, its about Layne to some extent. But more importantly its about Jerry saying he can't be around that anymore.

    General CommentNot every song dealing with drugs by Alice or Jerry is about Layne. This one, however, easily could be. The way that needles are mentioned leads me to that conclusion. Unfortunately, Layne loved to do heroin until it killed him.

    RIP Layne
