"Cursing Concrete" as written by and Charles Allen Ragan....
I broke in sight but made out alright
I jumped on my thought
I went off but i felt on
I cursed concrete
Felt fire in me
I tired my tongue
To lift my burden. It eats at me
Where's shame?
Shouting from a lot where the kids can't play
And I'll walk back again
Thinking of the ways that it could've been
And I hope that I make a mark
And stand strong even when I'm gone
Before I'm done
Before I lay down
I'll go off
But I'll be on
I cursed the streets
That run under my feet
I tired my tongue
To lift my burden. It eats at me
Where's shame?
Shouting from a lot where the kids can't play
And I'll walk back again
Thinking of the ways that it could've been
And I hope that I make a mark
And stand strong even when I'm gone

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Possibly Rumbleseat's best. Just makes me tingle everytime I hear it. I don't know what it's about, but the lyrics are beautiful.

    General CommentI think hes talking about regretting the way his life has been. "I cursed the streets that run under my feet.." suggests he was probably really poor and living on the streets. He has all these burdens but all he really wants is to be remembered "I hope that I make a mark and stand strong even when Im gone." I see it as kind of a bitter reminiscing of his life and what it could have been. Idk for sure though. But it is a really beautiful song.
