"Nothing Left To Lose" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
Nothing's good the news is bad
The heat goes on and it drives you mad
Scornful thoughts that fly your way

You should turn away cause there's nothing more to say
You gave the best you had to give
You only had one life to live
You fought so hard you were a slave

After all you gave there was nothing left to save
You've got nothing left to lose (you've got nothing left to lose)
No you've got nothing left to lose (who'd want to be standing in your shoes)
Nothing ventured nothing gained

No more lingering doubt remained
Nothing sacred or profane
Everything to gain
Cause you've nothing left

    General CommentThe missing middle stanza:

    You read the book you turn the page
    You change your life in a thousand ways
    The dawn of reason lights your eyes
    With the key you realise
    To the kingdom of the wise

    Ok, this song is off of one of the most tangibly conceptual APP albums - Turn of a Friendly Card. In short, it's an album about gambling - something Eric Woolfson (the main songwriter) detests.

    The only thing left to this gambler at this point is the relief of knowing the ultimate outcome of his gaming habit. He's lost everything, but in doing so he's realized the error of his ways and that he truly has 'everything to gain'.
