Last month someone smashed the window of my car and stole a case with music equipment. With this exclusive new song download I would like to collect a little money to compensate for the loss. Please help me out! Thank you so much!


Once again it's time to think about the good old days
and how my live has changed in oh so many ways
you were always with me you lay in my arms
with your voice made of steel and your wooden heart

Women they may come and women they will go
you've heard about all this too many times before
I told you every little secret you know all about my fears
you body is covered with my blood my sweat an my tears

So when the day comes that I die
put my guitar in my coffin hand it over to the fire
scatter my ashes into the sea
'cause no one needs to know where they have burried me
I don't need no flowers when I'm already gone
there can be no redress for all you haven't done
just scatter my ashes into the sea
listen to my songs try to forget about me

All you so called friends where are you now?
I've been through all of this all alone somehow
I never wanted compassion I just needed a friend
you don't need to come back when the story ends

try fail repeat once again I was wrong
try fail repeat how should I stand up strong?
when you destroyed nearly everything I believed in
when I survive everything I once believed in
