a looking in view lyrics – alice in chains

hear foot steps creek the floor
the shadows give away
someone outside the door
won’t let em in

life damaged gives to crime
a run down broke machine
that steals your piece of mind
before you know it’s gone
lay
down
wait

silence burning on your tongue
keep us separate, sullen, dumb

hiding in the darkness under
boiling to the surface, something

a looking in view too long on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life
a looking in view too long on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life

these things i hate in you
also reflect it seems
distortion laced with spite
teach you outta me
lay
now
lay

hiding in the darkness under
boiling to the surface, something
crawling on your skin discomfort
makes you break, run, stumble, fall

a looking in view too long on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life
a looking in view too long on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life

it’s why you never tell me (what’s on your mind)
it’s why you never tell me (what’s on your mind)
it’s why you never tell me (what’s on your mind)
it’s why you never tell me (what’s on your mind)

a looking in view too long on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life
a looking in view too long on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life

it’s why you never tell me (what’s on your mind)
