"Loaded And Alone" as written by Brian Howes, Austin Winkler and Ross Hanson....
Just a kid, just a fool
Always trying to play it so cool
So he did what he knew
He left home and he dropped out of school

He wanted fame, fame, fame
Even just a little bit of shame, shame, shame
He would sell his soul over in
Changed his name, never going to get it back, no

He's got money, but he's way off track
So lonely that it makes him think back
To his family and his friends and the lady he left back home
He's loaded and alone
He's loaded and alone

Still a kid, still a fool
Still trying to break all the rules
A big house, with too many rooms
An ego, to go with it too

He got his fame, fame, fame
More than just a little bit of shame, shame, shame
That he sold his soul over in
Changed his name, never going to get it back, no

He's got money, but he's way off track
So lonely that it makes him think back
To his family and his friends and the lady he left back home
He's loaded and alone
He's loaded and alone

He got his fame, fame, fame
Such a shame, shame, shame

He's got money, but he's way off track
So lonely that it makes him think back
To his family and his friends and the lady he left back home

He's got money, but he's way off track
So lonely that it makes him think back
To his family and his friends and the lady he left back home
He's loaded and alone
He's loaded and alone

He wanted fame, fame, fame
And such a shame, shame, shame
He got his fame, fame, fame
Such a shame, shame, shame

Yeah,
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lone
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lone
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentHow can there be no comments?! This is one of the best songs on the album!! Well in my opinion anyway.

    The lyrics are pretty obvious, a guy that wanted fame would do anything to get it and left all his family and friends back home. Im assuming he cant leave the life hes in for whatever moral or practical reasoning and yeah thats all there is to it really, lyrically its kinda similar to fallen angel by poison, i mean in the sense of what the song is trying to say not actual lyrics by the way.

    Hope this song gets some more comments!!

    General CommentGreat song. I can't believe this is only the second comment. Anyways, it's pretty self-explanatory.

    And I'm thinking that this song and Homecoming Queen are connected, because they have similar meanings, and both songs used the line "Such a shame, shame, shame."

    General CommentHeard it today, and loved it right off. Pretty obvious, fame comes with a price and money isn't everything in life. One of the better singles. :)

    General CommentYeah, this is one of the best songs on the new album. Great stuff.

    It's really about getting caught up in the idea that you have to have money and fame to be somebody worthwhile, only to find that the things you really wanted you left behind. It's quite similar to Homecoming Queen, like the last guy said. It's like the male version of that story.

    My Opinionfirst of all this song rocks! definitely one of their best...

    Loaded and alone = with "cash" or material goods but no one to share with

    Just a kid, just a fool
    Always trying to play it so cool
    So he did what he knew
    He left home and he dropped out of school
    = (this "kid" abandoned his roots to pursue a dream)

    He wanted fame, fame, fame
    Even just a little bit of shame, shame, shame
    He would sell his soul over in
    Changed his name, never going to get it back, no
    =(wanted this dream so bad he even changed his name, what a shame...)

    He`s got money, but he`s way off track
    So lonely that it makes him think back
    To his family and his friends and the lady he left back home
    He`s loaded and alone
    He`s loaded and alone
    =(once again he made it on the outside world but has no one to share with, regrets leaving home)

    Still a kid, still a fool
    Still trying to break all the rules
    A big house, with too many rooms
    An ego, to go with it too
    =(even though he misses the old days, wont change a thing for his ego has grown to big)

    and that's all i wanted to say, again just an opinion. think i can relate to the song, there have been many similarities, away from home i am loaded and alone.

    (or else why would i be commenting on this song right?)

    General CommentThis is a great song. One of my favorites from them and definitely from this album. As a musician with dreams of going big this is how I always feel that I am going to end up in life but I can't pull myself away from the music. I may die alone, but I'll have my music.

    I do believe that there are a couple very slight errors in these lyrics, though:
    "He wanted fame, fame, fame
    Even just a little bit of shame, shame, shame
    He would sell his soul for it
    Changed his name, never gonna get it back, no"

    Should be
    "He wanted fame, fame, fame
    Even just a little bit
    A shame, shame, shame
    He would sell his soul for it
    He changed his name
    Never gonna get it back now"

    And then the second pre-chorus should be:
    "He got his fame, fame, fame
    More than just a little bit
    A shame, shame, shame
    That he sold his soul for it
    He changed his name
    Never gonna get it back now"

    At least that's what I hear and have been singing for a while.

    General CommentI am a musician, and I have a band that I cofounded back in 2010, and right now...we just enjoy playing together, and we are working on a demo, but we suffered a setback this summer...our lead guitarist tore his ACL...so he was sidelined. We are just getting back to the point that we want to hit a studio.
