Metal Motivation – Alice in Chains – “No Excuses”

Alice in Chains mixed rock ballad, metal and a surprising amount of folk to create their 1994 smash hit album “Jar of Flies.” Arguably the best song on the record is the single “No Excuses.” It’s a slow, melodic journey about loneliness and why you need to do your own thing, no matter how much it hurts. Listen by yourself and enjoy.

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

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

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’ll love you anyway

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