River of Deceit

Post by cobalt » Sat Aug 07, 2010 12:58 pm



River of Deceit is just an awesome song! It's Mad Season's most known song, but it's still great.

I really like the lyrics on this one also. Specially that line "A head full of lies is the weight, tied to my waist" :)

I feel really good when I listen to this song. It's actually on of my favorite songs to listen just to chill out, if you know what I mean :)

I know exactly what you mean, mate!
The song's as awesome as ever, though I have to say I prefer 'I don't know anything'.

I like this song more and more every time I listen to it, but I hated it the first time I heard it. I thought it really didn't do Layne any justice. Now I really love it, and I don't know what I was thinking back then!

Artificial Red is still the best though, the sleezy, dim lighted, smoke-filled run down bar in a run down city, where like two people are drinking and the bartender is constantly washing something with a rag to it really does it for me. Great, great song.

The song is great (as every song on Above) but there are a lot greater.
My favourite are Lifeless dead, I don't know anything and wake up ^^

River of Deceit is easily one of my favorite rock tunes. Layne had an amazing way of sharing his thoughts and stories through his lyrics. It's cool to just sit back and listen.

Great, great song. My favorite lines "My pain is self chosen, at least I believe it to be. I could either drown, or peel off my skin and swim to shore, now I can grow a beautiful shell for all to see." Such a hard hitting line very close to home.
Shake it like a Polaroid picture.

Just found these forums while listening to River of Deceit...I remember how it used to be listening to these songs...this song is from a bygone time...but a time that lives on inside me. The way the song is constructed...the sincerity and sensitivity to the pain of the world...that's just gone it seems..

The lyrics to this song and the album in general really affirm that layne did not want to be a junky

So right. I've lost count of the amount of times I've day-dreamed about being in a band and playing this song, in exactly the kind of bar you've just described 8)
How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?

The only direction it flows is down...so humbly stated and without condescension. Why does that word even exist? What does it mean to be 'with descension'? Why not conascension?
