"Rottin' Apple" as written by and Michael J. Clervoix Christopher Charles Lloyd....
Hey tired man I see you walk alone.The wrinkles on you face, a map of all your pain. Your expression becomes an open book of time, filled with pages of forgotten hopes. Good intentions, regret, disillusion with Life, animosity, unbridled purity. All these things I swear I see and your eyes tell me all you could never be. So many times I've stared into the eyes of the young, the old, the lonely and the wise. Just to find a glimpse of all I have not seen just to find some peace for my jaded mind. Don't wanna live my life by the second hand of a clock that's long since past me by You say I've got to stay in line we'll your line is going nowhere and so are you. Choices decisions made smokin' away the pain inside, Sit back and watch it all go by We could never find the peace of mind we need, We hid it all away for another day Sit back everything's gonna be alright. Rivers of pain map your agin' skin your expression a journal of where you've been. All your dreams and your chances lost You walk along that dotted line do you remember a time when you used to dream? Do you remember a time when you used to live? All your dreams and chances they're all gone. So you gave it all away unable to say all you wanna say Look at you now - turned our to be face of misery Look at you now a rottin apple's all I see.

    General CommentMay be about what rxbrother is talking about, but since he never elaborated, I'll add that it sounds like he's singing about an old friend or something that used to have life in him, but is now just rotting away..
