"Counting The Days" as written by and Ed Roland....
Hey baby are you listening,
I'll battened all the hatches down.
I've taken all your prescriptions,
With no remedy I've found

Counting the days.
Until some freedom can scream my name.
Counting the days.
Until the Gods break these chains.

Hey baby are you watching,
I'm saddled in for your side show.
I never want to become prescious
This life is so touch-and-go

Counting the days.
Until some freedom can scream my name.
Counting the days.
Until the Gods break these chains.

Dig it, get it, dig it whatcha lookin' for.
Dig it, get it, dig it whatcha searchin' for.
Dig it, get it, dig it, yeah dig!
Yeah dig

Counting the days.
Until some freedom can scream my name.
Counting the days.
Until the Gods break these chains.
Until the Gods break these chains.

Break these chains
Break these chains
Break these chains

    General CommentIt is a decent song...not one of my faves although I do not like how this song is basically Metallica's "King Nothing" with different words and it is a little bit faster. Metallica has much more of a heavy tone to their song. If you listen, you will understand what I am talking about.

    General Commentstixx n strings is right on with this one, especially with the ADHD concept from the line "I've taken all your prescriptions...."

    General CommentAs a huge Metallica and Collective Soul fan...I agree. The song is pretty much the same riff as King Nothing. But that's cool, it's still a decent song.

    General CommentThe feeling during the bridge is like struggling against heavy chains, slowly breaking free.
    It's an interesting song and stirs me up for work most mornings.
