Helps if you listen to some older Metallica, to get into the flow I think. Particularly off Reload or The Black Album. "Mama Said" would be a good analog, but definitely not quite right. I don't think they (Metallica) have a single song that would fit to this one, but I definitely would sing this in a voice similar to James Hetfield. Aaaanyway... here's the show, kids. As usual with my writing, there's mention of alcohol. Mature content warning included for that reason.

"Worn" - 12/26/09
NOTE: Slightly mature content hereafter, be advised.

And everything I've made
I've thrown it all away
These hands broken and stained
For every gift I gave
No remedy to what I see
I've nothing left to pay

Every road I used to tread
Grown cold from dreams left for dead
And every bottle on the shelf
I can no longer help myself

These ghosts will not remain memories
Invade my waking thoughts with ease
Whisper my every failed attempt
Laugh with such cruel contempt
[Rising intensity]
I can't forgive the man I've been
Can't forget the things I did
Can't drink away this broken home
Can't sleep until I'm left alone

And everything I've made
I've thrown it all away
These hands broken and stained
For every gift I gave
No remedy to what I see
I've nothing left to be

So heavy now the weight I wear
For every promise I did swear
For every word I meant to say
Grows heavier on me each day
[Rising intensity]
With this last bottle I tie the noose
Finally let these demons loose
Grown tired of what I cannot repair
Grown sick of suffering my fair share

I'll take everything I've made
I'll thrown it all away
These hands broken and torn
For every burden I have borne
No paradise do I see
There'll be no forgiveness for a man like me
