"Dickeye" as written by and Jerry Cantrell....
Once round outside and check the door
Only thing he came here lookin' for
One man wasting another man
One hand washes the other hand

Born traitor, soul fader
Stoplight flashes in the street
Injected concrete hide bloody feet
Armed and shining in his hands

Cold metallic green, he don't give a damn
Born traitor, soul fader
Down come the hammer, fall my god, you say
Once again the big dog has his day

One man wasting another man
One hand washes the other hand
Born traitor, soul fader
One man wasting another man

Born traitor
One hand washes the other hand
Born traitor
One man wasting another man

Born traitor
One hand washes the other hand
Soul fader

    General CommentI feel this is a song about Layne. One man (Layne) wasting another man (Jerry). One hand (Jerry) washes the other hand (Layne). Especially true when you take into account the Unplugged thing when Layne messes the lyrics for "Sludge Factory" and then Jerry has to speak up for him trying to cool things down.

    Also, us Chileans have the following phrase: "pico en el ojo" which is pretty much what "dickeye" means (Dick in the eye), whenever someone tries to take advantage on you (f.ex. Someone selling you a fake iPhone instead of the real thing). I think maybe Jerry felt that way regarding how AiC turned out to be at the end of the nineties.
