One leg missing and both hands free

Sadly... James hit the nail right on the head with this one...

Thoughtful and powerfully worded. Makes me feel guilty and victimized at the same time.

I may have already been here, even numerous times, but seems like a while since I've even heard this one… an, heck, it only gets better. This guy is a genius at putting the cards on the table. Damn, his lyrics should be worth more than a few academic degrees.

This is a must listen. Especially during these times when middle class is being dismantled bit by bit.

A great song, it really lays out the problems we face as a country right now. Both the lyrics and music are great too!

Beautiful lyrics. Listen and give your Senator a call about Nat'l healthcare. After all, they are some of the worst b@st@rds for laughing at our pain.

One of the most powerful songs I have ever heard, like a punch in the gut. You can sum up the times we live in with this song alone - a sad but true anthem of the era.
