"Well Worn Hand" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
Wake up, my love
Today I heard some bad news
Just what are we all supposed to do?
I won't let them get to you

I don't want to go out on my own anymore
I can't face the night like I used to before

Take my well worn hand
Let's lock ourselves away
We'll never, ever step outside
We'll curl up in a ball and hide

I don't want to go out on my own anymore
I can't face the night like I used to before

I don't want to go out on my own anymore
I can't face the night like I used to before
I'm so sorry for the things that they've done
I'm so sorry about what we've all become

    General CommentI found this interview with Tom about the song:

    "I wrote the words to that song when I found out that someone I went to school with was killed on their way home from work, for no reason. It's not about that event itself, it's about how I felt hearing the news. I can't even begin to imagine the kind of person that would do that to another human being, so when I heard I thought, 'Well, what's the point? What's the point in going outside? What's the point in having any hope at all?' That's all the song is really, just those thoughts....It's a lock the door, stay inside and throw away the key kind of song."

    it's sort of like a no-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel sort of song... but I love the lyrics in spite of their bleakness... "I'm so sorry for the things that they've done/ I'm so sorry about what we've all become"

    General CommentI read somewhere that a friend of Tom from school was killed and that he couldn't believe people could be so cruel. This song is about that, how after that event it felt unsafe to go outside. Not sure how much truth was in the article.

    Obviously this song is about a vampire who dosn't want to be a monster anymore. I'm really starting to belive Tom truly thinks he's some sort of night creature, every single song of this album talks about vampires or similars. It's clear as crystal.
