down in a hole lyrics – alice in chains

bury me softly in this womb
i kept this part of me from you
sand rains down and here i sit
holding rare flowers
in a tomb… in bloom

down in a hole and i don’t know if i can be saved
see my heart i decorate it like a grave
well you don’t understand who they
thought i was supposed to be
look at me now i’m 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 a 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, outta control
i’d like to fly but my
wings have been so denied
