  • So I found myself in the sun, oh yeah
    A hell of a place to end a run, oh yeah
    California, I'm fine
    Somebody check my brain
    California's all right
    Somebody check my brain
    Check my brain

    I walk these streets, I creep and I fall, oh yeah
    When she sang I answered the call, oh yeah
    California, I'm fine
    Somebody check my brain
    California's all right
    Somebody check my brain

    Ah
    Tears have filled my bones
    Ah
    Years expended, gone

    I hung my guns and put em away, oh yeah
    The trick of the trade, and by the way, oh yeah
    California, I'm fine
    Somebody check my brain
    California's all right
    Somebody check my brain

    Ah
    Tears have filled my bones
    Ah
    Years expended, gone

    Ah
    Tears have filled my bones
    Ah
    Years expended gone

  • Shawn from Frostburg, MdAnother great AIC tune.
  • Mike from Atlanta, GaThis is my new ringtone on my phone. I replaced Would, which replaced Rooster, which replaced Love, Hate, Love. Get the idea. Alice In Chains is often imitated, never duplicated!!!! Mike
  • Jon from Enumclaw , WaFor some strange reason this song reminds me of zombies. Kick ass song though!
  • Jeff from Austin, TxThis song is so freakin good. It really sounds like something that would have been on Dirt! What's funny is that in the past 10 yrs, there were about a million bands who sound like this, but they all suck! AIC had one of the most original sounds in popular music history. All the imitators were pathetic. Anyway, if the rest of the album is half as good as this song, it's gonna be huge!
