"Byron Black" as written by and Christopher C./johnson Hughes....
I met a man named Byron Black
And he carried his life strapped to his back
On a sidewalk in Houston he called home
Crying "Don't you forget me" he said
Don't you forget me
You don't know
What it's like to walk alone
You don't know
And I hope you never will

Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
And what can I do now

Faces of people he would see
They were colder than any city street
And the days go on and on
And they just walk by
I'm disappearing he said
I'm disappearing
You don't know
What it's like
To walk alone
You don't know
And I hope you never will

Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
And what can I do now

Every hour gave that mames
But our hearts don't work the same
By products of an evolution
Lost always looking for a lost solution
Now

Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
Every stride
Wears the soul more thin
Until it's slowly worn down to nothing
No

    General Commentpretty self explanatory song, about a homeless guy whose just worn down by the life he has to live.
    i really do liek the line "faces of people he would see, they were colder than any city street"---its so true, people look at homeless people as disgraces and dont even consider taht they are a real person
