"Hazy Daze" as written by and Robert Emile Deleo Dean Deleo....
I'm freely standing
On my own
Or am I falling
In the river of cold?
Those friends always ask me
Saying, "How you been?"
Well I've seen somber days

Am I mistaken?
Could you be sitting there lonely too?

He was a man
Who didn't want me anymore
He never
Never
Never 'round
How much did you get for selling out my name?
Still won't forget those hazy days
Yeah

It's in the nighttime
When I'm feeling old
Or am I lonely?
I watched you go
My friends always wonder
Ask "How you been?"
Well I've seen better days

Am I mistaken?
Am I mistaken?
Could you be sitting there lonely too?

He was a man
Who didn't want me anymore
He never
Never
Never 'round
How much did you get for selling out my name?
Still won't forget those hazy days
Yeah

He was a man
Who didn't want me anymore
He never
Never
Never 'round
How much did you get for selling out my name?
Still won't forget those hazy days
Yeah

    My InterpretationI'm not 100% sure if Scott mentioned that the lyrics are indeed about his father, but I think the song is really about him and Mary Forsberg (sic) .. Scott, in the past, has viewed himself as both a man and a woman from multiple standpoints.. (crackerman: "he's a man, he's a woman too.." .. lounge fly: "she said she'd be my woman, said she'd be my man.. etc.)

    To dissect the song in my interpretation:

    the first part is the biggest giveaway: "I'm freely standing on my own," - he's free from his marriage, no more burdening chains of being married.

    "Or am I falling, in a river cold?" - Scott questions, is he really free? Or about to be really depressed that he is no longer with Mary?

    "Those friends always ask me, saying "How you been?" - Friends always check up on divorcees to make sure they're doing okay, and not going off of the deep end via depression.

    "Am I mistaken? Could you be sitting there lonely too?" Is a pre-cursor to the next lines (the chorus), Scott questions his thoughts in the chorus- he wonders if he's mistaken, that maybe she didn't really "didn't want him anymore," and that maybe she is left as lonely as he is.

    "He was a man who didn't want me anymore," - Scott views Mary as the man in the relationship, she made the final decision to let him go, because of this he feels she didn't want him anymore.

    The next line is the biggest clue that my interpretation may be correct:

    "How much did you get for selling out my name?" - Forsberg wrote a biographical story about her and Weiland's marriage, labeled "Fall to Pieces," basically selling out Scott's name to make a small commercial fortune.

    "Still won't forget those hazy days" - Scott was on drugs during their relationship, thus those were hazy days in his mind/eyes, due to his lack of sobriety.

    What do you guys think? That's my interpretation, I'm a long-time STP fan, and a huge Scott Weiland fan. I overanalyze all of his cryptic lyrics, as I find all of them quite beautiful in nature.

    General CommentHazy Daze" was written by Robert and Dean. Weiland again surprised the band with the direction of his lyrics. While the song is "rocking and kicking", Weiland's lyrics focus on his issues with his father. Dean described the song as lyrically unhappy. "You know, you never know what kind of words somebody might put on your music, and this was one of those cases where I was really surprised... [Weiland] is in a dark place."]

    General Commentlike the only dark song on the album... well one could argue the lyrical content of bagman is somewhat dark ( being about a drug dealer ) but has very upbeat music to it
    i think scotts most impressive writings are songs like these where they are really personal and dark as well
