"Regeneration" as written by Dean Deleo, Scott Richard Weiland, Robert Emile Deleo and Eric Kretz....
Regenerate the impoverished souls
That echo you
Bleed to feed the masses
Soup line two times two

They got your picture from the
Sunday Plain Dealer that listed you
(Dead)

Forget the story. There's a bounty on
Your head. They fingered you

Right away. Right away
Green light. Get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on

Positive cell regeneration
Positive cell regeneration

Celebrate the immortal youth
That wasted you
Peel the skin back from all the lies
That blistered you

They hold for ransom
All the watered down truths
That splintered your
(Faith)
So sell your soul, because you're already
(Dead)
They've listed you

To the fields where lesser mice go
To the fields where men follow
To the fields where lesser mice go
To the fields where we all follow

    General Commentwow what a great analogy,i can see the similarities now between the two "sell your soul cause your already dead theyve listed you" and "dont plan the funeral before the body dies " each song is unique in its own about the same issue the media had layne dead or dying before he actually did and they have nearly done the same to scott.

    General Commenti've been trying to figure it out myself... i think the last few lines have something to do with the novel "of mice and men" or the poem it was named after, but i'm not sure if it does or what it means.

    General CommentI think it follows in the footsteps of "Grind" by Alice in Chains in that how the media will always claim that a rockstar well known for drug abuse(such as Scott)is dead,when it is far from it,just so they can get noticed.

    General Commenti think this song is about all the rumors scott dealt with on his road to being sober

    "Peel the skin back from all the lies
    That blistered you"

    General CommentI love the dark and sinister lyrics and overall music. It gives me the chills. And I also thought that the last lyrics were about "Of Mice and Men" a great book by the way.
