about

As with many of my songs, I wrote this while riding my bike. It's a pretty sad song. It's about living in poverty and also my song for the missing women from the downtown east side in Vancouver.
I feel guilty sometimes when I say that I am poor, but I do very seldom see a hundred dollar bill.

lyrics

There are hundred dollar bills that we never see
there are hysterical people on TV
I wonder where my money went, wonder about next month
Living ain’t exactly free

And I for one can’t wait to get out of this race
I for one can’t wait to get back in that river again

There are corpses in the fields found buried
a couple of hours from here
I can hear them crying from heaven
their songs live everywhere

And I for one believe we can make a better place
I for one can’t wait to get back in that river again
Can’t wait to get back……

I light a candle for the dreamers and for the restless with no going back
I sing my songs for the believers, who aren’t buckled down and strapped…..

There are hundred dollar bills that we never see
there are hysterical people on TV
