"Blackened Waters" as written by and Zachary P Wylde....
And here I stand
I find myself alone again
The miles I've walked
Loss of hope and loss of friends
Yet I keep on running
And I won't look back
The waters rise
You never know just where they're at
The waters turn
Yeah, yeah
The hardships we endure
Yeah, yeah
You ain't the only son
Or forgotten daughter
We have drowned in blackened waters

The sun has set
The endless stream where nothing lasts
Forever damned
Today, tomorrow, and all the past
Yet I keep on running
And I won't look back
The waters rise
You never know just where they're at
The waters turn
Yeah, yeah
The hardships we endure
Yeah, yeah
You ain't the only son
Or forgotten daughter
We have drowned in blackened waters

The waters turn
Yeah yeah
The hardships we endure
Yeah, yeah
You ain't the only son
Or forgotten daughter
We are drowned

    General CommentI'm the first? This is an amazing song! Fucking rocks! As far as I can figure, it's quite simply about all the bullshit life throws at you, and sucking it up and taking it all.

    General CommentI think he got the idea from the black water that collects in a rain filled ashtray. Its so discusting to see whats going into your body but u keep smoking anyways. Therefore its almost like your drowning in the "blackened water"

    Song MeaningYou start out with family supporting you and then some of them get caught up in the blackened waters. They change, lose their way or support, become damned, or die. You continue on with a strong desire to move foreward. You keep on going with a bit of a guard not sure who the people you can trust are. People will come and go and people will try to fuck you over along the way, even your family- forgotten son or daughter. Eventually the filth of the earth will drown us all. I do think this song has a huge feeling that parents give up on their kids and don't support them. That relationship is tainted/blackened forever. Very powerful song even without lyrics
