Devotion had a price

You've left me in the filth
You've left me here to die
..Why?

Look at how you've broken me
Can't you see what you have done?
Is it the devil in you?
Or just a selfish heart?

So much loyalty
But devotion had a price
I carried you, I helped you up
But you tried to drag me down
All the fatal blows you've thrown at me
You rubbed it in my face
Now you are dead to me
Your death will set me free

Miles I've walked for you
But you've given not a step
Remember all I've done
How quickly we forget
You've taken me away
So far from who I was
And almost pulled my soul
Right out from under me

You've cast a thousand lashes
I never said a word
Another thousand lashes
Left me screaming at the world


Free, now I'm free
You're dead to me
Now, I'm free.

Low road


"Low Road"
I lost everything
I fell out of a daydream
At the door of a long lost friend
And I cried aloud
Without an inch of pride
I knew I had reached the end

An old and lonely man
Saw me sittin on the curb
He reached out an took my hand
He said I know your song
And I know your name
And there was a time that I felt the same

But it's a low low road
You've gotta roll down
Before you find your way, my friend
And it's a high, high hill
You've gotta climb up
Before you get to the top again

I held on so dearly
To the wrong things in my life
But now I see so clearly
I was walking into my own knife
You've got to get up off that street
Stop looking at your feet
And take a hold of something real
And this old man, took my hand
He looked at me and said, little girl, I understand

That it's a low low road
You've gotta roll down
Before you find your way, my friend
And it's a high, high hill
You've gotta climb up
Before you get to the top again

And there was a time that I thought that I knew it all
And there was a place that I thought I could call my own
But it all came crashing down and I looked around
And I knew that things would never be the same
