Song 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.
