The tools are immaterial, the resulting piece is what's most important.

What A Shame

Two packs of cigarettes a day and the strongest whiskey,
That's the recipe to put him down on his hands and knees.
I watched it all up close, I saw a side of him he never showed.
Full of sympathy for a world that wouldn't let him be.
That's the man he was, have you heard enough?

What a shame, what a shame,
To judge a life that you can't change.
The choir sings, the church bells ring. So, won't you give this man his wings?
What a shame to have to beg you to see we're not all the same.
What a shame..

There's a hard life for every silver spoon, there's a touch of grey for every shade of blue.
That's the way that I see life.
If there was nothing wrong then there'd be nothing right.
And for this working man they say could barely stand, there's gotta be a better place to land.
Some kind of remedy for a world that wouldn't let him be.

God forgive the hands that laid you down.
They never knew how much a broken heart can break the sound and change the season.
Now the leaves are falling faster, happily ever after.
You gave me hope through your endeavors and now you will live forever.
