"Sorrow" as written by and John Aka Johne Battle/lary Battle....
I'm the only one
That sings the same old song.
I know my destiny was made long ago,
I've yet to make a change.
Its time to rearrange.

I understand, it seems
I'm the last to notice,
How anybody feels.
Is it really 'cause I feel
I'm the one thats owed it.
Am I wrong? Am I wrong?

You look at me the same,
Still I feel the blame.
I was shifting my self,
Removing all the punishment
For never being wrong.
I feel life is too long.


All my pride leaves me vacant
For the sorrow I'm to blame.
But I know if I could just let go,
I could find a better way.
Only, Am I the only one?
Who thinks and breathes,
What no-one sees.
I'm the only one.


Give me just a chance,
I notice what I've done...
What I've done.

    General CommentThe lyrics look good except it's "the punishment for never being wrong." It actually says it in the pamphlet.

    Anyway this is easily my favorite song on the album. It's an epic power ballad (you can tell with the violins). Myles and Lajon's voices sound great together.

    The part to pay attention to is:
    All my pride leaves me vacant
    For the sorrow I'm to blame
    But I know if I could just let go
    I could find a better way

    It's about overcoming the sorrow you've been making yourself feel.

    General CommentI think the song is about having too much pride. Always thinking you're right, and failing to realize that you aren't the only person alive. It seems like it's about letting go after being hurt and realizing that their are billions of people with problems, most of which are probably worse than yours. I read this the most in "Am I the only one, who thinks and breathes, when no one sees..."

    Basically saying that the singer realizes that the world is bigger than him and he needs to get over what happened and move on.
