Album Notes
The Story behind "Ozone Therapy"

Every song has a story behind its writing. For "Ozone Therapy" (Chey's Song) it is a very personal story. Last year my wife was admitted to the hospital with what was diagnosed as Pneumonia. After a weeks stay, she was sent home on anti-biotic and steroids. The problem was the medicine ran out and she did not get better. After a trip to an Urgicare and more anti-biotic and steroids, she kept getting worse. Not being able to breathe is a terrible way to try and get through a day of work.
It got so bad that she went back to the Emergency Room of the same hospital and was again admitted. She could not walk 10 steps without being totally breathless and exhausted. She ended up needing oxygen supplementation 24 hours a day, even when she was just laying in the bed. The Doctors ran test after test and came up with the diagnosis of Unspecified Instersticial Lung Disease. Unspecified because they had no idea what was causing it. When we were given this diagnosis I went on the internet to find out as much as I could about the diagnosis. The first Google search I did, on the very first page, I saw that a Drug that was being prescribed to my wife called Macrobid could cause this exact problem. When we questioned the Doctors about this they denied and denied that it could be the cause. Telling us that it was very very rare side effect. They sent my wife home basically with no hope, expecting that she would die from this disease.
I am not sure you can imagine what it would be like to be tethered to an Oxygen tube 24 hours a day in order to get enough air to survive. We lived with a long plastic tube that she dragged from room to room when she could muster enough energy to move. I would not accept the notion that some unknown cause was killing her when I had read this is exactly a side effect of the Macrobid medication. We stopped her taking this medication and sought a second opinion at the world famous Cleveland Clinic. Sure enough it was as obvious to them as it was to me as to the cause of her problem. They diagnosed her with Macrobid lung.
There is no treatment for this problem but by stopping the medication a patient will sometimes slowly over the course of a year or more slowly recover lung function as long as the scarring in the lungs is not too advanced. Thankfully my wife has made quite a bit of a recovery and no longer needs the oxygen supplementation to get around in this world.
When I was writing the Rock Opera "The Ballad of Ronald Rump" I was thinking about this experience which we went through and it dawned on me that what our planet is going through is a very similar experience. We have a President who is denying Climate Change like the Doctors were denying the pharmaceutical side effects. The solution to the problem is exactly the same. Stop doing the thing that is killing the planet and it will regain it's balance on its own. Unfortunately this President through Executive Orders is rolling back environmental protections in every way he can to feed the greed of the corporate kings who control our government. As with the Macrobid there is a point of no return if these actions are not discontinued.
So here we are. I would not except watching my wife die at the hands of the arrogant elite. I hope you will join me in not excepting this planet we live on is being destroyed by the greed of the arrogant and corrupt elite. We have reached the point that the scars will be so deep that we will not be able to enact the cure. We must come together and demand action now.
It is not just one man. It is an entire political party that is denying climate change. To start the solution we need to remove this political party from any power in this country. We can do that by voting them out of power. From the level of Councilman and Mayor to our Senators and Congressman. These people must be voted out now. THE SANDMAN SAYS "TIME IS RUNNING OUT!"
Replace this corrupt corporate controlled political system with people who actually have the good of the individual at heart. By changing from a oil based economy we will see an economic revolution the the world has never seen before. We will find an equality between man as each and every one of us can contribute to the greater good of all. We can reach the promised land of prosperity that is not just for the elite few, but will be shared with all mankind. It can be shared with every living thing on this planet that we are currently destroying without any care for it's individual life force. This is the time that we need to make this happen. The alternative is we will be washed away and in thousands of years the Earth will have a rebirth where it will try to let the great creation of life be reborn to try again.

This is my song. This is our hope. This can be your song too. Sing with me and bring the change that is our Salvation. This is "Ozone Therapy" (Chey's Song)..........................
