"Below The Bottom" as written by and Chris Beattie James Shanahan....
Half dead, you trod through life
So dependant, a shell of a man
Follower of the blind, you have nothing
My empathy has turned to rage
My pity has turned to hatred
In selfishness you've sunken to the depths
How much lower can you go

All virtue decayed, now a memory
So many friendships lost
Only enemies
Same I feel for you, pain I feel for you
To cleanse yourself you've got to let go

Are you not alone now?
Are you not what you've become?
I want to give you the strength to overcome
The strength to reject those who have brought you down

Take a look, take a look at yourself
What do you see what have you become?
Take a look, take a look at yourself
You've gone below the bottom

You've taken their lies as your own
Tried to justify your own hypocrisy
You bear the mark of consequence
You've lied to yourself, you've lied to me
You've betrayed your own soul
Sacrificed all you were
In selfishness you've sunken to the depths
How much lower can you go

All virtue decayed, now a memory
So many friendships lost
Only enemies
Shame I feel for you, pain I feel for you
To cleanse yourself you've got to let go

Are you not alone now?
Are you not what you've become?
I want to give you the strength to overcome
The strength to reject those who have brought you down

Take a look, take a look at yourself
What do you see what have you become?
Take a look, take a look at yourself
You've gone below the bottom

    General Commentthis song to me is about watching loved ones sinking to the despicable level of the addict who leeches and uses everyone around them to get what they desire, and wanting to help them but knowing you can't unless they recognize what it is they are really doing. great song, great message.
