She had a normal life, up through her college education
But a stranger made sure one night she'd never be the same
Any amount of heart or determination
There was left behind, was soon to fade away
(It was) with breakdowns and bad luck
She wound up on the streets
Eventually a stranger to everyone she meets

Oh we all go down
That lonesome road
Where there ain't a sound
When you walk alone
It's a long way back

It's not the game it was back when we got started
And no one gave a damn how the job got done
I could have been a billionaire in the private sector
But still I chose to protect the rights of the innocent ones
There ain't a man alive who don't feel he's entitled
Still in the end, the only thing that he may come to know

Is that we all go down
That lonesome road
Where there ain't a sound
When you walk alone
You could cry out loud, but you walk alone
Lookin' far and wide, searching high and low
It's a long way back
Every single dream, every solemn hope run dry
For every man forsaken
There's still a reason left to try

There ain't a man alive who don't feel he's entitled
Still in the end, the only thing that he may come to know

Is that we all go down
That lonesome road
Where there ain't a sound
When you walk alone
You could cry out loud, but you walk alone
Lookin' far and wide, searching high and low
It's a long way back
