Story Behind the Song

"I'll make this world a better place" - this one came from a dream. We recorded it at Mike West's Ninth Ward Pickin Parlour in Kansas with a gorgeous New Orleans band.

Lyrics

first was rain
then there was snow
there was a wind
see how it blows
if you can see
then you will see:
there's profit where my finger is

sun, deep in the sky
burning the ground
steady and high
here is the sun
burning the sky:
there's profit where my finger lies

i'll make this world a better place

here is a war
they fight about me
they fight about bombs
they're crossing the sea
the sea is a toy
the land is all gone:
there's profit where my finger is

see, if you can see
where the world shakes
it's shaking for me
you do it yourselves
and nearly as well
to make this world a better place

and if you doubt
reason it out
famine and flames
hunger and drought
if you can see
then you will see:
there's profit where my finger is

lord, if you could allow
one month or two for now
without your fatal blow
we'll make this world a better place
oil under the sea
coal in the pits, profits for free
over the rise, up in the skies:
we'll fly from where your profit is

there's profit where your finger is
