One of my favorites off of the The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here album:

PHANTOM LIMB
(Written by William Duvall, Jerry Cantrell, Mike Inez, Sean Kinney)

No hope of rescue
I'm trapped here alone
If I don't dig my own way out I'll die here

Gave my loyalty too soon
Now the fork-tongued viper's dead
... Is dead yeah yeah

Weather is shiftin'
So cold goin' up
Through a pinhole of light I see vultures circlin'

Bottom feeders dig my skin
Winner bring a parasite
With him

Weak or pulverized
No better medicine
Angels have been advised
Don't want no requiem

I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb

Gonna wear you like a second skin
I'll haunt you like a phantom limb

Every new second
Getting harder to break
No matter which side I end up on
This ain't over

My regrets are very true
Still so much was lies (again?)...
By you

Weak or pulverized
No better medicine
Angels have been advised
Don't want no requiem

I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb

Gonna wear you like a second skin
I'll haunt you like a phantom limb

PRIVATE HELL
(Written by Jerry Cantrell)

Give away a love and then remove another too
Painted words adorn the walls, echoing untrue
I feel cold...

Promises abound, you rarely find it to begin
Maybe I'm afraid to let you all the way in
I guess so...

I excuse myself
I'm used to my little cell
I amuse myself
In my very own private hell

I excuse myself
I'm used to my little cell
I amuse myself
In my very own private hell

Lately I'm beside myself, pretending unconcerned
Standing at a corner where I threw you on a turn
I'll move on...

Flowers on a cross remain, marking an ending scene
Damn it all if blood you spill, turn the grass more green
Life is short...

I excuse myself
I'm used to my little cell
I amuse myself
In my very own private hell

I excuse myself
I'm used to my little cell
I amuse myself
In my very own private hell

I amuse myself
In my very own private hell

IT AIN'T LIKE THAT
(Written by Jerry Cantrell, Michael C. Starr, Sean Kinney)

There I was, laid out on a table
Screamin', sweat and bare feet to the floor
In my life, I'd not soften
Things that cut and burn so often
But I sit, think of somethin'
Scared to face the dyin' nothin'

See the cycle I've waited for
It ain't like that anymore

Where I go is when I feel I'm able
How I fight is why I'm feelin' sore
In my mind, not forgotten
Feel as though a tooth were rotten
Behind the smile a tongue that's slippin'
Buzzards cry when flesh is rippin'

See the cycle I've waited for
It ain't like that anymore

Here I sit, writing on the paper
Tryin' to think of words you can't ignore
In my eyes, what I'm lackin'
Score at face, a ten for slackin'
Sign the deal, set in motion
Smaller fish, so huge the ocean

See the cycle I've waited for
It ain't like that anymore
See the cycle I've waited for
It ain't like that anymore

It kind of, sort of, sounds like grunge meets country music to me, and I've always liked it:

HEAVEN BESIDE YOU
(Written by Jerry Cantrell, Mike Inez)

Be what you wanna be
See what you came to see
Been what you wanna be
I don't like what I see

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you think you have it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's f****d up, and I'm not blind
I'm just see through faded, super jaded
And out of my mind

Do what you wanna do
Go out and seek your truth
When I'm down and blue
Rather be me than you

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you wish you had it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's f****d up, and I'm not blind
I'm just see through faded, super jaded
And out of my mind

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you know you have it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's f****d up, but you're not blind
You're just see through faded, overrated
And out of your mind

This one manages to finish up just before I can get tired of it:

CHECK MY BRAIN
(Written by Jerry Cantrell)

So I found myself in the sun, oh yeah
A hell of a place to end a run, oh yeah

California, I'm fine
Somebody check my brain

California's all right
Somebody check my brain

Check my brain

I walk these streets, I creep and I fall, oh yeah
When she sang I answered the call, oh yeah

California, I'm fine
Somebody check my brain

California's all right
Somebody check my brain

Ah, ah, ah, ah, tears that filled my bong
Ah, ah, ah, ah, years expended gone

I hung my guns and put 'em away, oh yeah
A trick of the trade, and by the way, oh yeah

California, I'm fine
Somebody check my brain

California's all right
Somebody check my brain

Ah, ah, ah, ah, tears that filled my bong
Ah, ah, ah, ah, years expended gone

Check my brain
Check my brain
Check my brain

Love the bouncing bass on this:

WOULD?
(Written by Jerry Cantrell)

Know me broken by my master
Teach thee on child of love hereafter

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Drifting body, it's sole desertion
Flying not yet, quite the notion

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Try to see it once my way

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?
If I would, could you?

The sharp and also subtle edges in Layne's voice make this song work for me:

SEA OF SORROW
(Written by Jerry Cantrell)

Mind of destructive taste
I choose to stroll amongst the waste
That was your heart, lost in the dark
Call off the chase

Walls of thought, strong and high
As my castle crumbles with time
I think of you, oh, yes I do
Such a crime

You opened fire and your mark was true
You opened fire
Aim my smiling skull at you
You opened fire

I live tomorrow
You, I'll not follow
As you wallow
In a sea of sorrow

Lines cut across my face
Why you laugh at my disgrace, I'll never know
How far to go to reach that place

You opened fire and your mark was true
You opened fire
Aim my smiling skull at you
You opened fire

I live tomorrow
You, I'll not follow
As you wallow
In a sea of sorrow

You opened fire and your mark was true
You opened fire
I aim my smiling skull at you
You opened fire

I live tomorrow
You, I'll not follow
As you wallow
In a sea of sorrow

I live tomorrow
You, I'll not follow
As you wallow
In a sea of sorrow

I live tomorrow
You, I'll not follow
As you wallow
In a sea of sorrow

I live tomorrow
You, I'll not follow
As you wallow
In a sea of sorrow

Would? From the Singles soundtrack was my intro to Alice. Great soundtrack.
