When this came on the radio I was blown away with memories from the past. I remember being around 8-9 listening to my brother listen to this. Man its scary to think, times only going forward and we can't go back to when things were good...

Hes talking about being fooled by religion and wanting something that was really never there...and it making him feel guilty for nothing. he just wishes it was true but its not and he realizes that.

Phenomenal song. I love how the song as a whole has one big meaning, but each verse, the chorus, the bridge, everything can have it's independent meaning as you go through different crap in your life.

I heard that this song was inspired by the death of Chris' friend, Lane Staley. He was the singer for Alice in Chains. After reading it, it makes sense. Beautiful!

I LOVE this song. It has so many possible interpretations. Personally, I think it's about longing for your lost love at the end of your life.
