*******

Hard to believe, but it's 2017 in America and white supremacy, Neo-Nazism and other racist and hateful ideologies need to be once again clearly renounced.

I'm sick at heart over the hatred and violence this past weekend in Charlottesville. Like so many of us, I wanted to find a way to offer my voice and my trade to help those who are on the ground providing ongoing advocacy and seeking justice for the most vulnerable people in society.

Peace,
Stephen Claybrook

lyrics

********

Crazy, but that's how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Life's a bitter shame

I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

I've listened to preachers
I've listened to fools
I've watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned
To rule and control
The media sells it
And you live the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane

I'm going off the rail on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You've got to listen to my words

Heirs of a cold war
That's what we've become
Inheriting troubles
I'm mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I'm living with something that just isn't fair

Mental wounds not healing
Who and what's to blame?

I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
