The Lyrics

Just for fun, I decided to make a 3 part trilogy of the FACELIFT CD, using all 12 tracks in order in TOS ( along with part 2 and 3 ). I do not know if this has been done before ( it certainly hasn't with this band ).Also, to pay respect to Layne Staley who died approx. April 5th, 2002. There are the correct number of syllables per line, but obviously rhyming had to be changed a bit to make this work ( all 3 versions ). PS- These should be read in order, even though most people have heard "We Die Young" and "Man in the Box", few but AIC fans will remember I Can't Remember ( part 2 ).
( intro )
Staley was his way

I'd advise you play them over and over
And Alice rocks
And they shouda done better

And they were young
Having some fun

Made another hit
And several others

and six more of

( short solo )

Scary they were young
Alice in Chains way

The REAL THING's an illusion

Those twelve are done
Now you know them

* the song is called PUT YOU DOWN, but that would have made even LESS sense

Again, excellent job on the concept of this parody, but honestly, your version of DIRT was a tad better than this one, but overall, still great!!
Red Ant - April 06, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, that one was better, and written last. I actually started this trilogy with the song " I Can't Remember ", because it had no choruses. We Die Young was written second ( v1 ), and Man In The Box was written last ( v3 ). Was maybe thinking of doing Bleed The Freak and Sea Of Sorrow as well, but nothing gelled there ( besides, 3 was enough ).

(ABC05) By the other comments, this seems to be a good parody, shame I DKTOS.

(ABC) Freaky stream-of-semi-consciousness poetry, this is.

I've got the album Facelift. I only listen to the songs: I know somethin' (Bout you), We die young, man in the box, and Sea of sorrow. But I've never listened to I can't remember. PS- My name was Alice In Chains Fan but I might be named "Rikochet" or "007" or "AIC Fan" Just to let you know that.

(F) Neat idea for this one!

(ABC05) I have only heard one Alice In Chains song ever...wish I could say more.
Charlie Decker - June 01, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) DKTOS, but a nice read. Like Agrimorfee, I only know one Alice in Chains song...and this ain't it. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on pacing.

A great tribute to Weird Al Yankovic... I mean, Alice In Chains. Heh heh.

(ABC05) DKTOS but, I've seen enough of your good work to trust your pacing.....555

Another DKTOS... I'm not doing too well this round.

(ABC) A DKTOS for me too, I'm afraid...

Thanks everyone for the votes and the DKTOSs. :)

quite spookily mystifying .....

DKTOS, but I have a feeling you really like AIC, and great stuff this is...
Red Ant - June 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks martha and Dominic L. Yeah, you could say I like AIC alot.
Dominic L. - July 08, 2005 - Report this comment
OK, I finally got the song (Well, the demo version) And apparently, good pacing, and I'm sticking with the good stuff comment. 5's
Red Ant - July 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Dominic, and the demo is very similar to the on released on Facelift. The bootleg demo I have is recorded too fast by around 10% but is still pretty good.

You could have said 'SUNSHINE says I'll PUT YOU DOWN, CONFUSION'
