Ball And Chain

Lyrics

Well it's been ten years, and a thousand tears
And look at the mess I'm in
A broken nose and a broken heart,
An empty bottle of gin

I don't think I need anything taken away, I like my life just the way it is! I am strong and I'm weak for a reason. I love myself for Who I am! Even though I could use some improvement. :/
This song was my introduction to Social D I saw the video waaaay back in the day on MTV on 120 minutes...I' v e been a fan ever since...fina l l y got to see them live a few years ago with Lucero as the opener..2 of my favorite bands, great show
I know the lyrics! I know it's about addiction, he's speaking specifically about addiction to alcohol. I was speaking metaphorical l y about people being Balls in Chains.

Nice to play the bass with this one.
@Pale Rider: The song is about drug addiction, not carrying anyone's load

Haha take away this ball and chain <3
I don't need any ball and chains.. Life provides us with enough of those doesn't it? The people that we invited into our lives and become friends with are not supposed to add to the weight of the pressures if anything...h e l p carry those Balls n Chains.
I don't need any help carrying my load..just don't add to it. I'll help you carry yours though. ;)
