Black Day

Click: Black Day


On a day when I would rather be talking about the Packers advancing in the playoffs, I can’t get the events in Arizona off my mind. Do we need to keep arming crazy people? I’m not even sure I want sane people to have handguns, because I think owning one starts to make you a little nutty. The very act of buying one of these things defines you as a fearful person or a criminal. Do we have to be one or the other? This song was written a month after 9/11 when the kind of hatred that seems so resurgent now laid this country low. I did a demo of it on my old Roland VS 1880 and although I don’t much care for the sound, the feel is right. Say a prayer for the victims in Tuscon and our country, we don’t need to be this way.
