"All I Am" as written by and Jerry Cantrell Layne Staley....
Cannot recognize the face before me
It's unfamiliar
Time has left me broken down and homely
Can you still see me undisguised?

Outside the window of your eyes
Clinging to the memory of your prime
After many years the road you wandered
Left you here alone, deprived of others

On your toes or on your heels
There's a line drawn on the floor
Where the blood has dried, there is no shine

Have another go my friend
You see I can't feel anymore
While you question, just who the hell am I?

Is this all I am?
Given all I can?
Is this all I am?
'Til the end of time
Never knowing why

Ghosts and damage, no advantage for me
I'm past believing
Understand the price you pay disarming
When you can leave it all behind

Outside of the window of your eyes
Clinging to the memory of your prime
After many years the road you wandered
Left you here alone, deprived of others

On your toes or on your heels
There's a hole worn in the floor
Where the blood has dried, there is no shine

Have another go my friend
You see I can't feel anymore
While you question, just who the hell am I?

Is this all I am?
Given all I can?
Is this all I am?
'Til the end of time
Never knowing why

Cannot recognize the face before me
It's unfamiliar

    My InterpretationAccording to the actual lyrics, here's my interpretation. I think the song is about a drug addict who is so numb from all the damage his addiction has done to his body, spirit & soul that he doesn't he know what's left of him that's real anymore. What's actually left is foreign to him & destroyed.
