"Misunderstood" as written by Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, John Corabi and Mick Mars....
Little old man contemplates
Suicide twice a day
Life's passed him by
Little old woman scared and blind
Left alone in desperate times
Life's passed her by

(Chorus)
Oh life it's misunderstood them
So they close their eyes
And dream of better days
Oh life it's misunderstood yeah
Life's not always fair or so they say

Little boy with vacant eyes
Daddy won't be home tonight
And he don't know why
His mother she sits alone
Tangled in the web she's sewn
She lives lie to lie

(Chorus)
Strangled, caged, left alone
Doin' time in a broken home
Feelin' left to die
I'm a product of your troubled ways
You made me what I am today
Now you're askin' why

Oh, life it's misunderstood me
So I close my eyes
And dream of better days
Oh, life it's misunderstood me
Life's not always fair or so they say

Restless soul deep inside
Searches for some piece of mind
Livin' just to die
I'm an angry man I always have
Had to fight to survive my past
Sign of these times

Life, it's misunderstood me
And I know, know you've been there too
Time lets a restless soul fade away
Life's not always fair
Life's not always fair
Or so they say

Yeah, life it's misunderstood me
So I close my eyes
And dream of a better day
Oh, life it's misunderstood me
Life's not always fair
Life's not always fair
Or so they say

Little boy with hopeful eyes
Daddy's comin' home tonight
So don't you cry

    General CommentThe Crue was batshit insane to let Corabi go after this.

    Crue fans, enjoy your washed up singer who runs out of breath and has to sing every other word in order to try and keep up with the rest of the band.

    General CommentI am gonna start by saying that Corabi is/was a great singer, but he just didn't fit with Motley Crue...but this song really is a good one. People gave the Crue a lot of shit for firing Vince in 1992, and the fans let the band know it. Don't get me wrong, Corabi has a great vocal, and during his time in the band...he and the guys did write a good album, but being that it came out in the midst of the grunge heyday...the album bombed.
