The Songs

1. “Criminalized” tells how a lot of guys end up in prison.
2. “Thank You Karl Marx” is a sincere tribute to Karl
for explaining how the economy works.
3. “Green Party Blues” is written from personal
experience with well-intentioned politicos.
4. “Plantation Planet” contains the word “goddamit.”
5. “OppressRepressSuppressDepress” verses are
composed of verbatim lines from television commercials.
6. “All They Hear” is a good ole protest song reflecting on
the conditions in the Middle East.
7. “Isn’t She Coming” is a question old dads ask about
the daughter who grew up and moved away.
8. “Missing Mom” is from the point of view of a boy
with parent problems.
9. “Haywire Moon” was written 25 years ago about a girl
who couldn’t get over her troubled childhood.
10. “Why Wait” is about seizing the moment.
