Mad Season Lyrics
Layne Staley - Vocals
Mike McCready - Guitar
Martin Barrett - Drums
"Baker" - Bass
Its Sunday, October 16, 1994. A new band - or so it seems -
takes the stage at Seattles Crocodile Cafe. The audience
waits expectantly, curious about what kind of music these
newcomers (so new they dont even have a name yet) will
provide. But, a closer look at the musicians on stage
reveals that these guys arent newcomers at all. The band
features members from some of the biggest groups in rock
today: Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, the Screaming Trees. More...

This is a place to review a song and relay your interpretations. | Reviewer: So funny------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
This is a place to review a song and relay your interpretations. I don't quite understand why the negativity. In real life 99% of the people calling each other idiots wouldn't think about doing so in person, but since its anonymous. We all have a right to our own opinions, so let us express such. After reading over others interpretations if I may call them such, (the venom i've read made me forget why i was on here)made this site pointless. Thank you
brutal | Reviewer: mike------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
Excellent points below. The lyrics really are a brutal, self-actualization (albeit not rainbows and puppy dogs) epitaph. He puts himself in the descriptive lyrical realm o Dylan, yet chooses to turn the subject on his Johnson-esque crossroads. Neither direction is gonna be pretty. And so, as many other artists through the centuries, his choice is not to fade away....and he is now in that great hall of the artist without life but with peace...
beautiful lyricswr | Reviewer: corilia------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
Well I just listened(again)to mad season and river of deceit and I gotta tell ya layne's voice was so sweet and I love singing along with his songs. I also love "artificial red"it is such a sweet bluesy song and layne really nails it for the essence of this song and album. His talent is sorely missed .peace out
Most Powerful Song on the album, | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Wake Up performed by Mad Season
Unreal Song. First on a VERY underrated album. Really puts you in the mindset of a man who's desperate. Haunting Even. Amazing that he can realize and respect the power of his addiction yet still be unable to outlive it. A lot of amazing work came from this man, and this emotional spiral of addiction may have peaked at this song, and on this album.
This is for Dummies | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
Layne wrote more than 2-3 songs. Layne wrote several songs. Most of Dirt-Layne. Man in the Box-Layne. Rain When I Die-Layne. Nutshell-Layne. Sludge Factory-Layne. So, before you tell people to stfu...perhaps you should learn who wrote what before you make yourself sound more like an ass. Layne can speak to anyone's heart through his music. You sound like you are just a bitter person that believes only his/her own opinions are more important than anyone else's. if you don't want to hear people's opinions on a lyrics page, then don't visit pages that allow people to express what they think the lyrics mean. Also, art is made to be related to. How can one not appreciate it if they do not relate nor feel connected to it? Jerry did write quite a few of the songs, but Layne contributed to writing the lyrics as well. Hell, he even helped write the music on a few of them. So perhaps you should not be such a doh he and let people express themselves, the very way you did. You are not a true AIC fan. A true AIC fan would know the dynamics of the band as well as feel the music. Besides, this is Mad Season, not AIC. So get off your high horse and stop being a cyberbully. You'll only get pulled down...down, oh down. Seems like your pain is self-chosen as well.
Layne and Enlightenment | Reviewer: Jerrod------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
The lyrics are a clear revelation of Layne's (all be it too late) discovery of the path of peace laid out by the Buddha. He found the way, but chose to keep on the path of pain like so many. That does nothing to diminish the sheer genius and miles deep heart that Layne had and shared with us through his lyrics for all of time. Maybe one will hear this song and wake up, as another awesome track on the same album entreats one to do. Rock on in the next life brother Layne. You're still missed all these years later.
Still in awe. | Reviewer: Marcus Olivares------ About the song X-Ray Mind performed by Mad Season
This song is soooo haunting. I don't understand the lyrics as I think it relates to layne and nobody else. But the way he can just let it bleed through song is nothing short of phenomenal.
Sadness | Reviewer: BatMantis------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
A song which describes the realizations of a man who has recognized his fate. This is not about drug use or teen angst or any such nonsense. It is thoughts from a man who knows his options have been strangled by the will of others, against whom he has no recourse, a man who feels trapped, enslaved, owned. He feels that there is no way out, and I have no doubt that he had his reasons for feeling that way. Performers are unfortunately property for all practical purposes. Trick ponies who are exploited by their paymasters, families and friends. They are made into a product, packaged and sold. This is rampant in the music industry. Care to count the BRILLIANT individuals in this business who have died very young in this decade alone? It buggers the imagination. Staley offers you a glimpse of their life here. They become the spectacle, the product, not the music. The music is the hook, which brings attention to them. Then the sordid details of their lives are sold in the marketplace to the benefit of others. Never a moment of peace, they are beseiged by the media, fans, and fools who are looking for a little tin god to believe in. His pain has made many people very wealthy. My eyes bleed tears as I write this. If he were here, all I could say to him is: "I am sorry, I am so sorry". I pray to God that he was right, and he feels better dead.
Best album of all time. | Reviewer: Sharan------ About the song River Of Deceit performed by Mad Season
If you believe that this song is for only people who do drug...then fuck you. I don't do drug, why am I addicted to this song? I've listened this song whole fucking week without changing a single track. For me Layne is not only one who suffers, every single second we do suffer. Well this is what life is all about. And I got a tattoo on my wrist...MY PAIN IS SELF CHOSEN!
