Song Description

Top Ten - Rock: Psychedelic Top Ten - Folk: Rock Top Ten - Folk #1 Rock - Psychedelic #1 Folk - Rock #1 Folk

Story Behind the Song

This was inspired by the sad fates of people like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heath Ledger. Others, like Prince, Amy Winehouse, Hendrix, Morrison, Elvis and so many other artists have been taken from us because of drugs and addiction. This is their song. At the same time, so many forgotten people have succumbed to life from drugs.... it is more than sad.

What a wonderful song! Beautiful voice - easy, plummy, I could hear it and hear it again without getting sick of it. The music is also wonderful and fits the words to perfection. I will go back and listen to the song again - not a chore, I'm putting it on my playlist, - to fully get the meaning of the lyrics. There is much meaning there, but for now I have just wallowed in the beautiful sounds.

VERSE 1
He went from earned abundance to the depths of total waste
Pushed away all he had worked for, just to have a little taste
Perhaps he never planned how he would celebrate success
So when that day arrived, he chose to feed his joy distress
CHORUS
Why was he thinking, he wasn't doing any harm?
While his soul was crying, crying, crying from the needle I his arm

VERSE 2
Now, all of the accolades and all the awards
From the movers and the shakers, now only sound like empty chords
And all of the flicker shows will be playing back his past
But, all we'll see is an empty space at the a reunion of the cast
CHORUS
Why was he thinking, he wasn't doing any harm?
Till he woke up dreaming, dreaming, dreaming with a needle in his arm

BRIDGE
Now, what about the children that this evil leaves behind
As it steals away the most precious gift, the choice to give our time
Push back all these demons who lust to steal our precious love
Poisoning sweet futures with the back-side of a glove

VERSE 3
Friends and family they gather to cry and shake their heads
As they pay their last respects to him reclining on his final bed
Then they drift in single file out to a field that's filled with stones
Touch his box with one last wish then turn away and he's finally alone
CHORUS
Why was he thinking, he wasn't doing any harm
Till he woke up dying, dying, dying with a needle in his arm
Why was he thinking, he wasn't doing any harm?
Till he woke up dreaming, dreaming, dreaming with a needle in his arm
