Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
People don't always want to hear the truth.
"The Truth Hurts" by Finglas
We would not be having this discussion
If you had simply learned from your mistakes
It's not like the good lord left you lacking
You know deep down that you have what it takes.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions
A highway snarled with well intended wrecks
Of lives that somehow took the wrong direction
And lost all thoughts of love and self respect

You had a wife and kids that loved you well
But somehow that just never seemed enough
You chose a path of booze and raising hell
And now you realize you're not that tough

I don't have an answer to the question
Of how you get your life back on the tracks
The hole you're in, is your own invention
And only you know how to get it back.

It's not that hard to figure wrong from right
It's rooted in the center of your soul
Rely on God to help you in the fight
For only He can make what's broken, whole.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
