Don’t Follow

Listening this morning to one of my favorite bands Alice in Chains, this is how I was feeling today.

Tribute: Michael Christopher “Mike” Starr the original bassist in Alice in Chains past away on March 8, 2011. Mike was one of my favorite rock bassist, he enhanced the bands sound and vibe. Their are not to many great bassists out their but he was one of them. He had a heavy but mellow haunting sound to his music witch I love. I was privileged to see Mike play with Alice in Chains twice, an underrated band. Bands with any real sole just don’t exist today.

 

Alice in Chains “Don’t Follow”

 

Alice in Chains: Jar of Flies “Don’t Follow”
Hey, I ain’t never coming home
Hey, I’ll just wander my own road
Hey, I can’t meet you here tomorrow
Say goodbye don’t follow
Misery so hollow

Hey you, you’re livin’ life full throttle
Hey you, pass me down that bottle, yeah
Hey you, you can’t shake me round now
I get so lost and don’t know how
And it hurts to care, I’m going down

Forgot my woman, lost my friends
Things I’d done and where I’ve been
Sleep in sweat the mirrors cold
See my face it’s growin’ old
Scared to death no reason why
Do whatever to get me by
Think about the things I said
Read the page it’s cold and dead

Take me home
Yeah, take me home
Take me home
Take me home, yeah
Take me home

Say goodbye don’t follow
