"Two Steps Back" as written by Joseph Scott Sappington, Paul Allen Crosby, Christopher Jon Dabaldo, David A. Novotny and Wayne A. Swinny....
I see the end of every book I've ever read,
I see the price of everything I ever said,
I feel the break in every rule I've ever bent,
And I hear the sound of all the voices in my head,

[Chorus: x2]
Fallin' away, takin' the fall,
Can't even find no peace at all,
Will we ever change, no taking it back,
One Step forward, Two steps back

I've seen the falling buildings on the TV hotel bed,
I've seen mother's babies risk their lives for a waving flag,
And I heard the Dixie Chickens run their mouths in a foreign land,
And then try to take back everything they ever said,

[Chorus: x2]

Will somebody please take this away,
You better watch everything that you say,
Because it's gonna come back to you

I see the end of every book I've ever read,
I see the price of everything I ever said,
I feel the break in every rule I've ever bent,
And I hear the sound of all the voices in my head,


[Chorus: x2]

[Repeat: x4]
Fallin' 2 steps back

    General CommentGood song. I think the artitst is talking about how sometimes we think we are going forward with our lives, but as we reflect we are only going backwards.

    General CommentThis is a really good song. The whole album is really good. I agree with Sting06. I cant wait until Saliva comes out with a new album.

    General Commentthis isnt my fav i'll say that..but its a good idea for a song. i think its about watching what you do and say and that is what alot of people need to start doing..but we dont stop and we keep taking the fall and stirring up the piece and we need to change.
