"Down in a Hole" as written by and Jerry Cantrell....
Bury me softly in this womb
I give this part of me to you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
In a tomb... In bloom

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who wont let himself be

[Chorus]
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Id like to fly,
But my wings have been so denied

Down in a hole and they've put all
The stones in their place
Ive eaten the sun so my tongue
Has been burned of the taste
I have been guilty
Of kicking myself in the teeth
I will speak no more
Of my feelings beneath

[Chorus]

Bury me softly in this womb
Oh I want to be inside of you
I give this part of me for you
Oh I want to be inside of you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers (oh I want to be inside of you)
In a tomb... In bloom
Oh I want to be inside...

Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, outta control
I'd like to fly but my
Wings have been so denied

    General Commentsurprised im the first to post on this song. It is an amazing cover of an Alice in Chains song. off follow the lights LP. Another excellent cover in which Ryan Adams totally makes another artist's tune his own, much like wonder wall.
