Alice In Chains - Your Decision Lyrics



Time to change has come and gone
Watched your fears become your God
It's your decision
It's your decision

Overwhelmed, you chose to run
Apathetic to the stunned
It's your decision
It's your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lie
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower
And here you stand before us all and say it's over
It's over

It might seem an afterthought
Yes, it hurts to know you're bought
It's your decision
It's your decision

You feed the fire that burned us all
When you lie
To feel the pain that spurs you on
Black inside

It's your decision
It's your decision

No one plans to take the path that brings you lower
And here you stand before us all and say it's over
It's over

    @0:17 Corinthians 1023: I have the right to do anything but not everything is beneficial.

    I'm not preaching just thought that was interesting.

  3. Blue Moose Orchestra

    AIC still rock

  4. jasons growing tree

    Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

  5. Andy Ellis

    I need the lyric guy asap

  6. A. Stone Thorn

    Only, we need Layne with the contrast!

  7. 3cool2beans1

    A turning point for Google, we already know the side you defend! I wonder what it be like if you sides for Christ?

  8. sean b

    Jerry has one hell of a voice. I loved Layne's but I have a ton of respect for Jerry! Awesome song!

  9. Frank L.

    This might sound stupid, but I can almost hear Layne in this song. It's a beautiful tune and I'm sure he'd agree.

    wheels

    I was literally having the same thought and read ur comment 2 seconds later

    Minimum Wage

    You guys are meant to be bromance forever

    wheels

    @Minimum Wage bromance on this

  10. Jesse Duby

    Jerry is awesome, that's all I gotta say

  11. Jae Johnson

    Layne didnt survive the craziness of fame.. cantrell wrote this song to those that are evil(the same whom Layne wanted to "staaaaayy aawaaay" from.. i think

  12. Jeremy Burton

    Layne is listening up in heaven .

  13. Joseph Mayerchak

    This is my absolute favorite post Layne AiC song

  14. Gladiador Andrade !!

    A palavra " Corinthians',unica coisa que estraga nesse clipe !!

  15. Yuri Tarded

    10 years... I'm so proud of you guys

  16. Aryan Bhan

    3:52 just goddamn😍😍😍

  17. Mikey_Suze Four

    This is STILL my all-time favorite AIC song!

  18. RebelDuck

    I'm still a fan only because Jerry is still in the band. His voice is gold.

  19. Tvlogger

    bruh, this is obviously cannibalism

    Mikey_Suze Four

    What was your first clue?

    Tvlogger

    Mikey_Suze Four at 4:11 a number is burned on the persons 9687 arm and there are numbers on some sort of list and when the number is shown on this list it shows the woman eating a heart on a plate. you can see also a bunch of people at a table eating some raw meat, and under all other numbers on this list it showed human discriptions.

    btw I subscribed to your channel, if you could sub back that would be great.

    Stan Halen

    @Tvlogger /whooooosh

  20. Brian Ellinger

    You steal everything from a man.
    And leave him to die alone in silence....
    .
    ?... its inevitable

  21. Dustin Miller

    ☠ William Duvall ☠

  22. Andy Kooper

    They are eating people don't u see the menu at the end

  23. Matt Musicaddict

    Great song!!!

  24. Angelina Kim

    Алиса должна была закончить свое существование вместе со смертью Лэйна. С подражающим вокалом Джерри не то))))) Alice was supposed to end her existence with the death of Lane. Jerry’s imitative vocals aren’t right)))))

  25. Danilo Garcia

    Hermosa canción

  26. Joe Barancyk

    Did jerry go satanic?

  27. David Ellis

    The Song & Video are both perfect.

  28. ElevatedGrub Gardens

    The songs about a seiance

  29. ElevatedGrub Gardens

    I wish this video went with the song😠

  30. Anakin Wildstar

    RIP LAYNE

  31. Budlight Falcon

    Layne was a bad ass! but Jerry Cantrell is Alice in Chains.

  32. lafranchessca austin

    I love it!!!

  33. danny sellers

    I really think this song is very beautiful! It's one of those in my opinion that you've had to suffer the deepest darkest depths of addiction to really understand it in a way that a normal person wouldn't! It's very cryptic and that is the key to the door of the meaning of the song!

    sheri

    That was my first thought, when I heard the song...then I saw the Video...and I watched again and again...Have you ever watched the end of this video...IN SLOW MOTION....the Menu Has Humans as the Entrees!!! This is Not Normal...Sorry

  34. Eddie Muniz

    There’s lots of risks to numbing Yourselves.

  35. Carlos F

    William Duvall can hit high notes that Jerry Cantrell cannot. But, Jerry never highlights William’s powerful voice. I think that he’s worry about becoming overshadowed once again by a strong vocalist. I’ve seen them live with William covering classic AlC songs and William can hit a lot of the high notes they used to put in their music. It’s a shame they don’t go back to that. New Alice In Chains is just Jerry Cantrell‘s solo projects now with the AIC name.

  36. Luis Rodriguez

    Very good the history of the video making mysterious and metaphorical references in our journey to be debited. Long live Alice In chains, I love you

  37. Lance Jacques

    You want to die by drugs your choice IDGAF Doesn't mean it's not sad.

  38. Cedric Bastarrachea

    Your desicion

  39. Midnight Welder

    Jeffrey Epstein didn’t killed him self.

  40. sheri

    Watch the Video in Slow Motion at the end and Pay Attention to the MENU...AIC... I sure hope this was a wake up call to All , and you are not Involved!!! RIP Layne

    Robert Levitt

    eyes wide shut

  41. Willyb shreddn

    Jerry Cantrell, thank you so much for carrying on what you and Layne started. The Dirt album carried me through dark times in my life. Alice in Chains has always been a band close to my heart.

    The legacy you 2 started is very much loved the world around.

  42. James Wolf

    Why are there no comments on the message in this song 🤔

    sheri

    I JUST POSTED THIS COMMENT ON LIMP BIZKIT VIDEO BOILER Understanding what the songs really did mean, is amazing today..I'm so glad I'm Awake now WWG1WGA Thank You Q Team! Re-listen to the words of Hotel California...and watch the video of Alice in Chains song..'Your Decision' ....Un Mistakenly Horrifying!!!!

  43. Mikey_Suze Four

    This is still my all-time AIC favorite song!

  44. Steven Wood

    This video is a Perfect allegory or marriage and then divorce.
    The bald white guy that punches the guy is the state. The ex tricks you with one thing, a promise of something, uses you, then chews you up, gets the divorce prize in the end.
    Remember getting in that line to lose half (sometimes more) of your shit.....its your decision. Ha ha!

  45. sharpshooter07

    An Ode from America to Trump supporters.

  46. Robert Rakestraw

    I miss the layne Staley Alice in chains so much. He be proud

  47. Josh Dil

    me enecanta

  48. Laura Mayfield

    okay who is the guy at 2:07? He looks very familiar in this video.

    Mikey_Suze Four

    The actresses in this video, according to Wikipedia, are Sarah Stage & Amanda Fields...At 2:07, it's the son of an actor in Hollywood, but I couldn't get his name. :-(

  49. Guilherme Andrade

    I don't know if it's only with me but this video seems to pass a message of something like Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut; something like a private meeting of moguls where some kind of ritualistic sex takes place. I wonder what kind of meaning it may have had for them.

    Grunge+ doom metal 😎😎😎😎😎😎

  51. Nicolas Blanckaert

    that BASS LINE ! Simple, smooth & highly efficient...

  52. Karina Alarcon

    Kind of annoyed I didn’t know this song was about prostitution

    sheri

    It is worse than that...watch the end slowly...the menu!!!

    Faust Scalpel

    Video isnt the song

  53. richardkaneferguson

    u people need to wake up out of ur pipe dream....only 8 songs after jar of flies are good..all bands have a time when they r at the peak of their powers for AIC it was dirt and jar of flies

  54. David Slanker

    This songs words are unclear. Is the a Karaoke version? I give it thumbs up for vocals and guitar

  55. Timmo Sassafrass

    Jerry aged pretty well

  56. ReushK

    This entire album proves that Layne wasnt the only driving force behind this band.

  57. STEVE P

    Free Will and consequences.

  58. Mike

    Essa música é muito nostálgica e tocante, lembra claramente de 2009 D:

  59. nir penker

    Beautiful!
    In my head I'll forever hear Layne Staley👊👑🤘🔥

  60. Samuel Shrestha

    Miss Layne badly

  61. DoorKicker

    This is about the temptations that come with money and fame.
    All the pedophiles in the music and movie industrial complex are going down.
    The round up is underway.

    I get it......

    DoorKicker Lol 😂 “the plan” is pure fiction and will never be carried out, Dumbasses! : (

    sheri

    The plan for Freedom is in place..You should join...Freedom is fantastic!

    Tom Porgy

    sheri Storm and occupy Zorro Ranch now! The NWO Illuminati luciferian cabal has underground baby farms👶, clone farms and sex sacrifice dungeons in operation right now and absolutely zero citizen militias are out looking for these places right now! : (

  62. Quiñencoetu maire

    Jerry , ya no te viene el pelo largo , a tus años

  63. Jchan

    its hard to get used to a band after losing a guy with the voice like Layne

  64. nathan watkins

    Layne said in rooster "Seems every path leads me to nowhere" and in this Jerry says "No one plans to take the path that brings you lower" wow that's just cool. I always look for these kind of things this is really cool I don't know if it was a nod to Layne but idk that just seems to be to much of a coincidence. But I could totally see it being something that just happened to be.

    Giuseppe Meneguzzi

    I'm sorry but "seems every path leads me to nowhere" is not a phrase from Layne's point of view. The song was written by Jerry to his father who fought in Vietnam, so it's like his dad said that...I mean, it's a different context

  65. Lidia Mendes

    Masterpiece! 🤗

  66. andrea prati

    Here i am in 13 oct 2019. That's my decision.

  67. Max Gamez

    I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this idea,but the lyrics is about how Layne kept falling into drugs time and time again. Right?

  68. Dan Mayer

    Jerry Cantrell needs to be inducted into the HOF

  69. Léonard Monchau

    2:19 that guitar solo 😍😍😍😍😍

  70. btchhopperou812

    Doesn't seem that anyone gets the actual meaning of the video... let's just argue over if it's still AIC or not

  71. Eric Aguilar

    Just heard the entire album today, and am now very contempt about it

  72. Christopher Liebler

    God bless Lane Stanley Alice in Chains forever and as a neon glass blower good job

  73. ExpertTroll

    Freaky video. I can tell it's highly influenced by Eyes Wide Shut. It's cool to see one of my favorite bands take influence from one of my favorite movies.

  74. Anthony Gregory

    Wow this is so good.....

  75. spencer 124

    Layne is rocking on in heaven right now, just super obsessed with Alice In Chains right now in a good way, the same songs never get old, I just keep finding more and more good songs from Alice in Chains I add to my list of faves :)


    Layne and Mike Starr are legends, wished they could have been helped and saved from death. They're both like brothers to me, I was 4 years old when Layne died, never met them:(

  76. Andre Borgman

    no words....

  77. keeranimal8

    I am(and always have been) a rabid fan of Layne...my kid is even named after him...that said, I have seen them with Duvall, and I love the band now as well!

  78. Snake Plisskin

    I'm sorry it's not even close AIC is so much better than Nirvana....that said I still like Nirvana though but facts r facts

  79. Irish Tactical

    Duvall was a BRILLAINT decision for this band!!!!

  80. L0vac

    This is my fav post-Layne song, very touching and has that early 90s groove to it. I've heard it at least 100 times and I'm still enjoying it like the first time.

  81. cooltunesmadeezy

    awesome song to learn on guitar,,,,

  82. Toby Baur

    ....yea, love this killer record track. Alice in Chains.

  83. Dave Bunch

    All the dislikes must be from from folks who dont appreciate good music.Even if layne is gone!!!!Still sounds good as hell!!!!!

  84. Dave Bunch

    jerry cantrell is a bad mofo on that guitar!!!!

  92. Lautaro Ciancio Damsky

    AIC RULES

  93. Carmel Dennison

    It’s Monday morning and I don’t
    Want to go my mindless job
    But it’s a living ...
    This song is powerful and it gives me hope
    Or maybe a sense that I am not alone
    Especially sense my friend and lover
    Of 4 years
    Broke up with me then disappeared
    This isnt the first time he broke up with me and then disappeared
    I just don’t think he is going to be coming back this time
    He suffered from a mental illness
    I pray that he will find his peace someday
    This music is one of the reasons I can get out of bed and go on.❤️🎶🌈

  94. george smith

    william is simply awesome... Jerry, THANKS FOR NOT QUITTING! Layne can't be replaced but he made his decision and we will forever remain sad about that but in no way does it diminish Duvall. a real talent

  95. Hunter Whitten

    Worship him and he will give you everything you want and could ever need.🤘🏻🐐

  96. NUR
