I was reading articles , watching documentaries, and listening to friends talk about the American healthcare system.

Album art: Pregnant woman and fountain (New York City, New York) by Sean Kua


There once was a man who lived in a shoe.
He had a wife and she was dying.
He had a daughter, she was dying, too.
I saw him at the bank one golden afternoon.
He pulled out a gun.
He robbed the whole place with our faces pressed against the cold marble.


He couldn't pay for the hospital bills or for the medicinal marijuana.
His wife and daughter died the second he stepped out of the bank.
Though he hurried on home hoping he'd get there in time to pay the last bill... to spend the last few moments.
But the ambulance was there before he had a chance to turn the knob.


His face is on the news.
His faith is on the loose.
He's got six hours before they catch him.
So he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked and he smoked.
He cursed the damn hospital.
He cursed his damn job.
He cursed his damn life.
And he cursed the God above.
And he smoked himself to death.

I like to listen to music and make music, hey, what a coinkydink!

I'm inspired by many artists both living and dead, and by non-artists also living and dead. I like to write songs about people I encounter, or things that I like, sometimes things that I hate, or how I feel. I really hope you enjoy what you hear and you help feed me! ... more
