Down In A Hole Lyrics

Bury me softly in this womb
I give this part of me for you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
In her tomb in bloom

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I've decorated like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be

Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
I'd like to fly
But my wings have been so denied

Down in a hole and they've put all
The stones in their place
I've eaten the sun so my tongue
Has been burned of the taste

I have been guilty
Of kicking myself in the teeth
I will speak no more
Of my feelings beneath

Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin'' my soul
I'd like to fly
But my wings have been so denied

Bury me softly in this womb
(Oh I want to be inside of you)
I give this part of me for you
(Oh I want to be inside of you)

Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
(Oh I want to be inside of you)
In her tomb in bloom
(Oh I want to be inside)

Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, out of control
I'd like to fly
But my wings have been so denied

pimp's comment is wrong. Mike Starr smoked crack with his dad and Layne did heroin with his dad. Jerry was close to his dad and prob. never did drugs with him. I don't know what the song is about.

Oh songs mean whatever they mean to you..Layne said it himself it changes from the time they wrote it to what's going on later in their life..

The song has nothing to do with laynes life, does an actress or actor actually live the fictional movie , lets all just live in reality and understand that he and many others in this world .....

I dont know what its supposed to be about and dont really care, however I've been suffering from depression and this song best describes my day to day feelings.

I feel safe in saying that I don't care who sang it or wrote it-I think part of creating a GREAT song is when anyone (even a TBI Survivor, like me) can feel like theyll b Down in a Hole... n FOREVER!

Layne staley sang this song along with Jerry on backups... vintage AIC. And Jerry wrote it, it has nothing to do with Laynes addictions..
