The entire record is based on this song. I sought out four of my folksongs which might say about the same thing each of the melodies do. I ended up with a couple dozen. Could only part with a few without sniffling and tearing up. A very contemplative piece; no?

brand new. I wrote this thinking about wars that I didn't start. Oh, the Spanish is easy. Ready? We win. We're the new hands. A thousand hands. All the poetics might be harder to get though. You're on your own on that one.

First part of this was emailed to me. The rest was produced professionally by my friend Carl.
A Fred Small song. It's one of those Rise Up Singing songs I just can't put away. See if it sticks with you too.

Hear some samples here.
