"The Outcast" as written by and Kenneth William Casey Alexander Martin Barr....
If they can make a law
Then I can break a law
If I can break a law
Will the law break me?
It comes tumbling down again
I can't comprehend
Is it destiny?

A nomadic state
Are you a refugee?
No place to call your home
Forever walk alone
As the world goes on
Forgotten by the ones you know

[Chorus]
And all the words you gave me
I lost on bended knee
But you can't stop these cravings just by praying they would cease

If I can make a life
Then I can take a life
If I can save a life
Will this life save me?
Time after time
I still seem to find
You're looking out for me
So wrap your arms around me
Hold me close and don't let go
Let me lean on you as I think things through
If I don't we'll never know

[Chorus: x2]

Will your faith save me?
Will I find this place where I belong? (Find this place where I belong)
Can you protect me from my troubles?
Keep me safe from harm?
Will you help me carry on?!

[Chorus: x2]

If they can make a law
Then they can break a law
If I can break a law
Will the law break me?
It comes tumbling down again
I can't comprehend

Is it destiny?
A nomadic state
Are you a refugee?
No place to call your home
Forever walk alone
As the world goes on
Forgotten by the ones you know

    General Comment"All the good advice in the world ain't gonna change a person gone bad, if you're unwilling to learn from past mistakes. It's also about fighting personal demons like maybe drug addiction for example"

    This is the first song on the album that grabbed me.

    Learning from mistakes is what allows us to progress as a society
