Musical Monday's Not for the Faint of Heart

Alice in Chains- A Looking in View

I am so very glad I got introduced to Alice in Chains. Their music is so powerful. This video is not cheery by any means but neither is life at times. We have all faced our own kind of darkness and hopefully make it through to find peace. Suffering is part of our experience and it is the only thing that can truly teach us compassion, strength and deliverance. The first time I saw this video I had such an incredibly deep emotional reaction. But Alice in Chains does that to me often. 

Hear footsteps creek the floor
The shadows give away
Someone outside the door
Wont let me in

life damaged gears to grind
a rundown broke machine
that steals your peace of mind
before you know its gone

lay down
lay

silence burning
hold your tongue
keep us separate
so they'll know

hiding in the darkness under
boiling to the surface don't go far

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

these things i hate in you
also reflect it seems
distortion laced with spikes
digs you outta me

lay down
lay

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

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

its why you never tell me (whatevers on your mind)
its why you never tell me (whatevers on your mind)
its why you never tell me (whatevers on your mind)
its why you never tell me (whatevers on your mind)

looking in view to knock on the outside
desperate plans make sense in a low life
hey

its why you never tell me (whatevers on your mind)

  1. I like how you put that. Life IS dark sometimes, and you just have to accept that and get through it.

    I like this song, thanks for sharing and participating! :)

  2. You're absolutely right. Life can be dark & twisty, it's not always sunshine & rainbows. I love when I find a song that can reflect my darkness. Makes me feel less alone.
