did they slam him to the ground on his elbow and then use that sore, open wound to control him from there on out? Or do they just to that to women calling for help?

Oh I'm on my way I know I am

But times there were when I thought not

Bleeding half my soul in bad company

I thank the moon I had the strength to stop
