Alice in Chains – A Little Bitter Lyrics 19 years ago
GOD, I hope I made my point here. I do have to agree with aicguy22 about people automatically thinking all of these songs are about Layne or drugs. Most of the songs were written by Cantrell and have nothing to do with either subject.

Alice in Chains – A Little Bitter Lyrics 19 years ago
Ok, aicguy22. You say you're tired of people of people being naive and thinking that every aic song is about drugs or hating God. Well, you forgot to tell us what you think the song is about.

This song is obviously about Layne lashing out at God. Theres so many references to God it should make the meaning of the song obvious.

Who
Are you
Who can say
It's ok to live through me

Popular Christian belief would have us think that God is everywhere and in everyone and that we must perform Gods work to produce "fruit." In a sense, God is living through us and Staley doesn't seem to aprove.

Lord is this a test
Was it fun creating, yeah?
My god's a little sick
And he wants me crazy

That should be obvious enough. Sure you can think you're smart and say that God is a metaphor for drugs or w/e....but then youd just be wrong.

The body is a temple
A dormant alter
To where infantile men lie around
Itching and nibbling
For a small piece of sanity
Of which you can not give

"You" is once again referring to God. C'mon people! Hes talking about dormant alters and people looking for sanity that cant be given to them. Hes lashing out at God! Does it need to be spelled out for you.

aicguy mentioned Hearts song Ring Them Bells. He also mentioned that the lyrics were written by HEART not Layne. Dude, just because you write a song about your problems with God, doesnt make you anti-christian.
And this isn't the first time Staley has addressed his beef with God either. Check out God Am from the self-titled album. That ones even more obvious then this one.

Staleys lyrics were always brutally honest. Blunt and to the point. They're not hard to figure out, but that doesnt mean the man wasnt a lyrical genius.

Anybody think this song is about George Bush Sr? That line about "Mr. Gardener" always caught my attention.

Alice in Chains – Down In A Hole Lyrics 19 years ago
Blind Opius, I'm with you man. Since Staley was an addict, I guess that means every song is about Heroin, right? Of course not. Staley didnt even write this one. Cantrell wrote this song (and countless others) about the love of his life, Courtney Clarke.

Alice in Chains – Brother Lyrics 19 years ago
Hah...After not being able to sleep, I decided to pick up a guitar and I ended up learning this song. Must have been 3am and I dont think I ever did get to sleep that night.

Anyway, Cantrell wrote the song about (duh) his brother, Howard. I recall Cantrell saying that he didnt always treat his brother as well as he should have and this was an attempt to reconcile with him.

I think Staley is making alot of references to God in this one. That whole stanza where hes talking about a dormant altar and infantile men lying around looking for a piece of sanity...seems to be an accusation staley is making, basically stating that God's full of shit.

Jerry Cantrell – Hellbound Lyrics 19 years ago
I cannot figure out what the hell this song is about. Theres so many lines in it that go right over my head: "Black eat white, cassette thrill" "Washington, a fish belly rust" and many others that dont make sense to me. Great song by a great song writer tho
