"The Damage Done" as written by Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy....
I won't waste away
I won't let this take me down
I can't survive
As long as I keep it around

I wish it would fade
But it will just sell me out
Over and over and over
I cried out loud

Somebody save me
Somebody save me

The race I run
I keeps me farther on
The man I could become

The damage done
I want to wash the filth away
Till there is none

I run till I break
From the way it was killing me
Profuse to the day
I'll suffer afraid to speak

I carry the shame
And beg for a remedy
How long must I live
With the damage of my disease

Somebody save me
Somebody save me

The race I run
I keeps me farther on
The man I could become

The damage done
I want to wash the filth away
Till there is none

The race I run
I keeps me farther on
The man I could become

The damage done
I want to wash the filth away
Till there is none

    General Commentwell! maybe this song is appeared on the album as a bonus track, but it's better than almost all of the songs we hear on the radio nowadays.
    does anyone else think the solo is a bit like metallica's Fade to Black?

    General CommentThe chorus is wrong. It's supposed to say:

    The race I run
    It keeps me farther from the man I could become

    General CommentI won't waste away, I won't let this take me down
    I can't survive as long as I keep it around
    I wish it would fade, but it will just sell me out

    Over and over and over, I cry out loud - "somebody save me... somebody save me..."

    The race I run, it keeps me farther from the man I could become
    The damage done, I want to wash the filth away 'til there is none

    I run 'til I break from the weight of what's killing me
    Profuse to the day, I suffer, afraid to speak
    I carry the shame and beg for the remedy
    How long must I live with the damage of my disease?

    My OpinionAn anthem to all of us who struggle after the damage done has destroyed everything.
    I did not make any big mistakes. Just many tiny harmless mistakes honestly trying to help. Now the damage done is too big.
    Heavy lyrics for heavy hearts. It hurts like hell but relax, listen to
    Alter Bridge and get up.
    Thank you AB for this music that inspires me to fight another day.
