    Lyrics

    My pain is self-chosen
    At least, so The Prophet says
    I could either burn
    Or cut off my pride and buy some time
    A head full of lies is the weight, tied to my waist

    The River of Deceit pulls down, oh oh
    The only direction we flow is down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down

    My pain is self-chosen
    At least I believe it to be
    I could either drown
    Or pull off my skin and swim to shore
    Now I can grow a beautiful shell for all to see

    The River of Deceit pulls down, yeah
    The only direction we flow is down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down
    Down, oh down

    The pain is self-chosen, yeah
    Our pain is self-chosen

      One of my all-time favorite songs. Layne's lyrics and melody are the obvious highlight, and they rival anything he did in AIC, with all credit due to that amazing band, of course. Dig how the the few upright bass notes way in the background add so much to the song! Amazing. I love it.

      Wtf?! No one has commented on this? Doubt many people heard of this band. Anyway, totally great song from another great supergroup.

      R.I.P. Layne, but atleast he's in a better place now.
