"The Path" as written by and Philip Hansen/brown Anselmo....
Crawling, to the path of the righteous
Crawling, to you again, to you again
Crawling, up and down a mountain
Crawling, then up again, then up again

Could you ever admit to yourself
That you must walk in the light of the past?

Not invited, to cry out loud
I'm a brother, stone cold true
Love and suffer, Siamese gold
Left divided, so I trudge on out

Could you ever admit to yourself
That you must walk in the light of the past?

Not invited, to cry out loud
I'm a brother, stone cold true
Love and suffer, Siamese gold
Half divided, so I trudge on

Eyes wide to reality
Crawling, up and down a mountain
Crawling, to you again

Eyes wide to reality
Crawling, up and down a mountain
Then up again

Eyes wide to reality
Crawling, I'm
Crawling, I'm
Crawling, I'm
Crawling

I'm crawling to you

    General CommentI think Phil wrote this song to tell what it means to him to be part of the underground scene:

    "Could you ever admit to yourselves
    That you must walk in the light
    of the blessed?
    not invited
    to cry out loud
    I'm a brother
    stone cold truth
    love and suffer
    (the) siamese-cult"

    He also seems to possibly be writing about his sobriety and abstinence from hard drugs, and his continuing journey to stay that way:

    "eyes wide to reality
    crawling... the the path of the righteous
    crawling... to you again"

    General CommentI think that this song is about Phil being unable to go to Dimebag's funeral.
    "Not invited
    To cry out loud
    I'm a brother..."
    He was unable to mourn in the right way, and "cry out loud" for his brother.
    That's just me though.
