I have stayed away from politics relentlessly this year, until now...

This song reflects my feeling this week about the current political situation in my country, the United States, and the rise of the fascism of Donald Trump.


I cry
I cry for you
this is my lament

It's a cold heart,
It's a cold heart
I hear beating
It's greed incarnate,
greed incarnate
and hate overfilled.

I cry
I cry for you
this is my lament

We hold disaster
in our hands
We hold
disaster in our hands
We can melt this down
We can remake this town
With opinions
of hate and death
But what would we have done?

Now I'm living and recording in the hi-desert in Southern California, near Joshua Tree in Pioneertown.
