Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he hath not another to help him up. Ecclesiastes:4:9-10

Story behind the song
As a young man I believed in God but didn't have His Spirit enthroned in my heart yet so it was a very lonely feeling... perhaps you can relate?
Lyrics
I’ve been walking down some lonesome streets yeah Aint no talking weren’t no people there to meet And it was only yesterday I heard me say that I could hear myself thinking Well I know it can’t be so but it’s so awful long ago I started shrinking You’re like a clown and when you’re down about to drown you can’t see yourself sinking Well all right, all right Daring danger I was wasted to the core yeah A total stranger I was paced dead to the floor But I was rough and I was tough it seems I couldn’t get enough of isolation Got out of school and being cool was such a fool I nearly died from frustration Yes my failure wasn't sure until I heard about the word humiliation Well all right, all right I need a friend I can’t pretend no longer I’ve reached the end my weakness just gets stronger every day I’m so alone I’ve turned to stone and fire I’m on my own with only this desire to be free Somebody help me ‘Cause I’ve been walking down some lonesome streets yeah Aint no talking weren’t no people there to meet And it was only yesterday I heard me say that I could hear myself thinking Well I know it can’t be so but it’s so awful long ago I started shrinking You’re like a clown and when you’re down about to drown you can’t see yourself sinking Well all right, all right
