He became addicted to heroin and cocaine in By the s, Staley was battling a severe addiction. The darker side of addiction had its influence on Staley's lyrics. No, it's not. Dirt is about depression, loss of loved ones, jaded views upon common society, and yes drug addiction. But it goes deeper than drug addiction really, as made evident by this song for example.
This song, as well as the whole CD it's from, is totally and completely about using heroine. Actually Layne died of a speedball, which is a mix of heroin and crack cocaine. Dave Mustaine once said he tried it and he and his friend thought, wow, this is like the best thing ever, why hasn't anyone tried this before, and then later they realized that people had tried it, but since the risk of overdoseing is so high becouse the crack takes out the smack and vice versa people use bigger doses most of them were dead before they could tell anyone about it.
And as Drake said, Soma White - Soma White song was written by Cantrell, so it's most likely about him and not Layne. The song is about death obviously. From what I interprit,its that Them Bones - Alice In Chains - Come & Save Me scared of dying Dont Be Cruel (Part 1) - The Million Dollar Quartet - The Legendary Session rotting in the ground, with no afterlife.
Just a pile of bones. He reffers to his fear of death a lot in their songs. Like man in the box. Yeah I agree with the comments added to the lyrics but he didn't commit suicede he overdosed on heroine.

I'd like to fly but my wings have been so denied. Why you act crazy not an act maybe, so close a lady, shifty eyes shady.
I stay away. In the darkest hole you'd be well advised not to plan my funeral before the body dies. Let the sun never blind your eyes, let me sleep so my teeth won't grind, hear a sound from a voice inside. You insult me in my home, you're forgiven this time, things go well, your eyes dilate, you shake, and I'm high? Look in my eyes deep and watch the clouds change with time, 20 hours won't print my picture milk carton size.
