"The Man Who Loved Beer" as written by and Kurt Wagner Donald Book....
To whom can I speak today
The brothers they are equal
But the old friends of today
They have become unlovable

To whom can I speak today
The gentleness has perished
And the violent man has come down on everyone

To whom can I speak today
The wrong which roams the earth
There can be no end to it
It is just unstoppable

Death is in my sights today
As when a man desires
To see home after many years in jail

February through December
We have such a tragic year
As separate as the fingers
Suddenly, as one, as the hand

And the violent man has come down on everyone
And the violent man has come down on everyone

    General CommentThis is a cover of a song by the band Lambchop, who if you haven't heard, you should really check out. They do a kind of gentle, country soul.

    General Commentthis song seems to be about a man who loses his friends and family because of his addiction to the beer... maybe...

    General CommentThis song is loosely based off an old anonymous Egytian poem disputing suicide.


    To Whom Shall I Speak Today?'

    To whom shall I speak today?
    I am laden with misery
    Through lack of an intimate ...
    Death is in my sight today
    Like the clearing of the sky,
    Like a man attracted thereby to
    What he knows not.

    Death is in my sight today,
    Like the longing of a man to see home
    When he has spent many years held in
    captivity.
