"Road Salt" as written by and Pain Of Salvation Daniel Gildenloew....
This time I'll try not to get hurt
This time I'll stay untouched with pain and dirt
This time I'll stick to what I've learned
This time I'll fly so low I won't get burned

Maybe it's not enough
Maybe this time it's just too much
Maybe I'm not that tough
Maybe this time the road is just too rough
to walk down, so I sit down.

I've walked this road so many years
I've worn down all my boots, I've cried all tears
So many crossroads left behind
So many choices burned into my mind

Maybe it's not enough
Maybe this time it's just too much
Maybe I'm not that tough
Maybe this time the road is just too rough
to walk down, so I sit down.

Maybe it's not enough
Maybe this time it's just too much
Maybe I'm not that tough
Maybe this time the road is just too rough
To take me home

To take me home
To take me home
To take me home
But I walk on

    General CommentMost of it sounds like a honest confession on the difficulties of life and what he has experienced. Asking himself if he has gone over his head with everything and debating giving up or maybe just slowing down. At the end tho I feel he accepts that he can't give in 100 percent but just to keep going and learn from the past.

    My InterpretationI agree with Fadefury. However I feel that importantly, although he thinks of giving in, he thinks it is too much, too tough this time (to deal with life/issues) in the end he decides though to "walk on".

    That's he will persist, he will not give up, he will fight on ... we all doubt ourselves during our life, but we need to walk on and challenge those obstacles in life.
