#3 on SoundClick.com's Alternative Emo Charts. The original (slow version) has Dave's solo effort, using a keyboard guitar- check out the "plucking" sounds of "non-existent" strings. Same story as the "Hot Rock Version."

About the song
This is reeeaaally slow - so listen to this one with the lights "out!"
Lyrics
Verse 1:

As I walked down the rocky path, the old man did recall.
He'd left it there, the precious prize he'd hidden in the wall.

And on his bed, before he died; I promised with all my might, that I'd go there and claim the prize, to prove that he was right.


Verse 2

Well the gold it gleamed, the diamonds shined - just everything I need.
I've lived a life of selfishness; of blatant want and greed.

But had I seen the "note" he'd left, just lying on the floor:

"Take some time to know & care!"

I would have lived much more.
