    Every time when i hear this: "If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead" and remember that Layne is dead now, it's like... I don't know. It's like the saddest thing in the world.

    I'm not usually into sad songs, but this is so genuine. I love it.

    [it is impossible not to be cut into pieces by this song. after 20 years still devastating.] <-- This is the exact way I feel about this song. It's hard for me not to get teary-eyed even now whilst listening to it. I share some of the accepted ideas on why this was written(Heroin addiction), so I will till the day I die have a place in my heart for this melancholy masterpiece.
