"Unknown Road" as written by Fletcher Dragge, Jason M. Thirsk, Byron Mcmackin and Jim Lindberg....
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, and
That has made all the difference." r. frost

So you're currently content with your surroundings
You possess a vague sense of accomplishment
Did you give all you had to give or did you
Give conservative
Do you think that all the years that passed you
By we're all well spent
Pictures of everyday life spark memories
And certain things pull triggers in your mind
What would be different now if you were
There than here.
What passages, what fantasies lie just
Beyond the unknown road
Do you know, the miracles that could
Be found they're waiting down the
Unknown road, so it goes
A few more cornerstones that could be yours
Ever get the thought you were mistaken?
Ever think about the stones you've left
Un-turned? More chances slip away with
Every passing day, suffering with cold
You're so afraid you might get burned.
And wondering can take it's toll yeah
And wondering you can rack your skull
And wondering can send your
Imagination up a tree
Wondering what fantasies lie just
Beyond the unknown road
Time is right now of the essence
Time is right to learn your lessons
Time is all that you have left
Things you've contemplated
The unknown road is one

    General CommentThis song asks a lot of questions. Places them on the individual. Did you live your life to the fullest? Di you reach your full potential as human being? Did you give all you had to give?

    The answers to these questions lie down the "unknown road", in other roads, you haven't known that "road" unless you "walk it", meaning one should get out and go and the life thats best for you.

    "ever think about the stones you left unturned?" Ever think about the goals you set for yourself but never accomplished. One day you'll look back with regret for not conquering those goals. So what they are saying is, once again, be the best you can be.

    General CommentThis song draws many ideas from Emerson's. It's saying that the easiest, most traveled way of life isn't necessarily the best. Get out there, and try your hardest.

    General CommentThe unknown road is from the Robert Frost poem. It's about taking a chance, and how a little change can go a long way and really make difference.

    In the poem, he decides to take the road less taken, and it was worth it to him.
