"The power of the riff compels me"
Bury Me In Smoke
The lyrics were written by Jerry Cantrell. Since we can't know for sure what went through his head at the time I don't think we'll ever know the exact meaning (if there is any) but I say it's definetly about losing yourself. Whether it's because of a drug addiction, the loss of a friend or loved one or just about the inability to overcome your insecurities whenever you want to approach someone you love... I don't know, but these are a couple of things that came to mind while hearing the song.
