I like the lyrics to the self titled AiC album,the line

"you'd be well advised not to plan my funeral before the body dies"


plus, some of those songs are really dark and depressing and for some reason I am into that
The lyrics to the s/t AiC cd are good...but I just like the Dirt lyrics better...that album is even more depressing..."Dirt" is a classic...but on s/t,"Shame in You" is a really sad song,I think.But because of the sond and the way Staley's singing,not becuz of the lyrics.
