“No Excuses” –Alice In Chains

This song tells how I feel right now. I am so mad. . .I’m seeing shades of red I haven’t ever seen. I will write more later. . .

“No Excuses” — Alice In Chains

It’s alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
Layin’ low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I’ve sold

Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, that I know

It’s okay
Had a bad day
Hands are bruised from
Breaking rocks all day
Drained and blue
I bleed for you
You think it’s funny, well
You’re drowning in it too

Yeah, it’s fine
We’ll walk down the line
Leave our rain, a cold
Trade for warm sunshine
You my friend
I will defend
And if we change, well I
Love you anyway

  1. The song’s deep. The best songs are the songs you can relate to. Song sounds like it’s talking about a friend you’re mad at but know you can’t be mad at them for some particular reason? I dunno, I’m bad at song-decrypting. hehe.

  2. Awh hehe. I love songs that have a deeper meaning and that can connect to how a person is feeling. The last 2 lines kinda related with me.

    But anyways. hugshugs*

  3. I’m sorry to hear your feeling so extremely mad =/ I do hope you will feel better soon.

    The lyric of that song is beautiful. I’m always deeply touched by songs with deep meaningful lyrics. I mostly can relate to any of them A LOT.

    Anyways, you take care of yourself, hopefully your able to smile by now ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This part of the song really got me:
    Itโ€™s okay
    Had a bad day
    Hands are bruised from
    Breaking rocks all day
    Drained and blue
    I bleed for you
    You think itโ€™s funny, well
    Youโ€™re drowning in it too

    I don’t know what about it. I think it’s very deep, I don’t really listen to much music, but I’ve heard of the band, I’ll look it up one day ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hmm… I don’t know what happened, but it sounds like it was something pretty bad. I hope you feel better soon though.

  6. Welcome to the “We’re angry” club. I had two fights with two good friends. It was totally their fault and they still haven’t apologised, which makes me more pissed off. ๐Ÿ˜ก This song sounds interesting… I’m off to d/l it off iTunes now. Hope you don’t feel mad soon! Take care!

  7. I’m so glad that there are songs that can help people understand how another is feeling and that’s what makes a person up. Music. But I hope everthing gets better.
