"Spoke In The Wheel" as written by and Zachary P Wylde....
Lord, I question whether I've had my fill
Lord, I question whether I can take much more
You may laugh as I lay here bleeding
No more afters or befores

Some day you'll know just how I feel
You left me there twice before
Some day you'll know just how it feels
Shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride
Like you were never nothing special
Made you feel like another spoke in the wheel

So you say I'm just another dollar
So you say I'm just another day yeah
Once my blood was strong but now its jaded and its thin
Unlike you I can still tell right from wrong

Some day you'll know just how it feels
While you left me there twice before
Some day you'll know just how it feels
Shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride
Like you were never nothing special
Made you feel like another spoke in the wheel

Some day you'll know just how it feels
While you left me there twice before
Some day you'll know just how it feels
Shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride
Like you were never nothing special
Made you feel like another spoke in the wheel

    General Commentthis is by far one of Zakk Wyldes most meaningfull, artistic songs ever. its obviously about a girl he loved. she left him and it hurt him everyday to live without her. but as he goes on he sounds like hes ok and hes just reminding her about how she was and that all bad things will come back to kick your ass. just like he says..."someday you'll know just how it feels"

    General CommentTo me it's about anything bad that someone has done to you. Stripped of pride, outcasted, etc. None of it matters, because it just makes you stronger. Spokes, afterall, support the wheel and the more there are, the stronger the circle. Summary: "What does not kill you, makes you stronger".

    General CommentActually, this song is about Zakk back when he was just starting Black Label Society. He went on tour with Guns n' Roses and they made him feel like shit. They said he was nothing special. It's not about a girl at all. zakk gave the meaning of the song before he played at the Mafia tour last year.

    General CommentI agree with rainman824, you can apply it to a girl if you want to but I remember hearing about that somewhere before and I know he went on tour with GNR.

    General CommentFuck GnR, Fuck Slash cause BLS and Zakk is better. Speaking of it, Slash is one of those highly praised piece of shits whose (un)talented skill is exploited by millions just to create a trend/fashion statement. I mean, really, what the fuck is the difference between Sweet Child O' Mine and Welcome to the Jungle? Having said that, all of the songs from them sound the same. This is why I hate Slash and hope he chokes on his own pride.

    Well I love this song and now that I've figured it out here that one of the most overrated piece of shit bands made him look like a loser, this song means much more. SDMF MOTHERFUCKER! And don't you ever forget it you fucking jokes, GnR. See you in hell you two-faced pricks.
