"Treading and Trodden" as written by Eugene Gill, Andrew Workman, David Gunn and Andrew Beal....
And I’m walking round town again
And I’m looking for a best friend
One that I can build a nest in
One that I could leave some sex in
If you could feel how this hurts
You would kill yourself first
Hacked my skin all up again
And I’m hanging out with dead men
I’m haunted by a memory or a dream about a better me
Before I had an enemy
Before they wanted my neck from me
Bow down pray to your god and
Kneel down don’t pick from the garden again
I’ve been treading and trodden
Trying not to try and kill myself over again
And I’m walking round town again
And I’m looking for a fortune
One that I could buy the world with
I would trade it for my woman
If you could feel how this hurts
You would kill yourself first
And if I’m shot down in the street again
Let me bleed till death if you’re a friend
Bow down pray to your god and
Kneel down don’t pick from the garden again
I’ve been treading and trodden
Trying not to try and kill myself over again
Bow down pray to your god and
My girl don’t eat from the garden again
I’ve been treading and trodden
Trying not to try and kill myself over again

    General CommentThis theme starts to get a little old a little quick. I also get the impression from this song especially that he feels that he is "better" than us because he has had such a hard life. Sure he's had a hard life, but there are many struggles that many individuals face throughout their life ... he is not unique in that manner.

    For me he needs to start using his experiences to act as a catalyst for change or at least providing an avenue for others to share his life. Instead of the ego that he is better and we can't understand him ... these themes are usually more linked with gangsta rap. Maybe this is gangsta rock?
