"Frogs" as written by and Sean H. Kinney Jerry Cantrell....
What does friend mean to you?
A word so wrongfully abused
Are you like me, confused
All included but you
Alone
The sounds of silence often soothe
Shapes and colors shift with mood
Pupils widen and change their hue
Rapid brown avoid clear blue
Why's it have to be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Flowers watched through wide brown eyes bloom
A child sings an unclaimed tune
Innocence spins cold cocoon
Grow to see the pain too soon
Why's it have to be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Be this way
Be this way
"At seven am on a Tuesday, usual August
Next week I'll be twenty eight
I'm still young, it'll be me
Off the wall I scrape you
I can't wake, I gotta wake
To cause this wake, I gotta wake no more
It causes wake, to drown this hate
To never really stay, never will
You take your plate
Put me through hell, live, live
Direct your fate
You say I can do it so well
Your expiration date
Your expiration date
Fate, date, expiration date
(this was the last time)
Hate
And don't fuck with me again
My own clean slate
Don't fuck with me again
Makes your eyes dilate
Makes you shake
Irate"

    General CommentDo you guys think this song has anything to do with the relationship Layne had with his father?

    In case you do not know the story, his dad left when Layne was 8 or so. And then a few years later his mom or someone told him that his dad was dead, but Layne did not believe it so he went looking for him, without telling his family.

    When he found his dad, he saw he was an addict.

    He figured that if he became a rock star that his dad would try and find him and that is exactly what happened. Unfortunately, his dad used him for drugs and drug money and that's about the extent of their relationship.

    When Layne was trying to stay clean, his dad would still come by trying to score drugs or money for drugs. This also mirrors what happened with his longtime girlfriend, Demri.

    I was just throwing that out there to further the discussion about these lyrics and their meaning.
