"You Can't Save Everybody" as written by and Sean Locke Kieran Kane....
Old dirty dog walking down the street
No shadow did he cast
Clock on the wall
No hands at all
No present, no future, no past

[Chorus]
You can't save everybody
No word, no deed, no praise
You can't save everybody
Everybody don't want to be saved

Old headstones, old buried bones
Just laying 'round cemetery deep
I'm burning matches
For the sake of making ashes
Just trying to get some sleep

[Chorus]

Poetry pages filled through the ages
With words that don't make no sense
Quart of beer in a brown paper sack
Two dollars away from the rent

[Chorus]
