"My Lack Of Skill" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders William J Lugg....
All my life, I waited for something great,
Here I am with nothing showing.
And all I want, yes it is all I wanted- it's us
I lost my chance maybe a month ago.
I waited long but I got to thinking
I waste my time because I'm always thinking I'm wrong.

And it's tough being alone when you're naive
And you just want to believe everything everyone says.
Oh, it would be great if I could just deal with it.

I'm packing up almost everything,
I'm moving out and starting over.
And all I want, maybe it's all I want, is love.
If that was it, then it would all be great,
But I can't walk without feeling lost.
And I don't know, I'm thinking it's all I know is us.

And it's tough being alone when you're naive.
And you just want to believe everything everyone says.
Oh, it would be great if I could just deal...

And it's tough being alone when you're naive.
And you just want to believe everything and everyone.

    General Commentthis song is pretty self explanitory: lost a chance, looking for what everyone needs deep down inside, starting over, hoping to find love, and struggling to make it on your own.

    I absolutely adore The Mechanic and The Mother. The Path I haven't really given a chance yet.

    General CommentHonestly, this is one of the three best songs on the album. Ace sounds so awesome through the whole song it just makes you feel the whole song. And I agree with Missleene, he lost his chance with someone that he had some huge feeligns for and is hoping to find some type of love in the future. Huge song.

    General CommentProbably the best song off of the entire triple disc. Though the album in its entirety is fairly good. Definitely one of the better releases of 06.

    General Commentthis song needs more at the end, i know people will say the simple piano is great throughout the song but i think it needs something at the end when he is singing the ahh's. or maybe they could end the cd with this song too and change the lyrics to make sense with the ending. be cool.
