If you have "no place to go," come here!

Levon Helm's death -- I won't use that loathesome euphemism, "passing" -- seems to have made a lot of people stop, think, and listen. Not sure why. The fucking Beach Boys they're not. Here's a bonus track:

"Made in Canada!"

* * *

When obstruction blocks my way
I walk down that narrow way
till I can see the light of day
shining at the world
and I realise that something here sure is wrong

The stones I throw will free all men
Make him walk proud through this righteous land
He will know which way to go
I will show him by the stones that I throw

Don't build walls and barricades
So a man can't have his say
And barking dogs can't block my way
From taking my brothers hand
and something makes me want to stand up and do what's right

The stones I throw will free all men
Make him walk proud through this righteous land
He will know which way to go
I will show him by the stones that I throw

It doesn't feel so "loathesome" when it's some you love. It's hard to come to terms -- whether it's sudden OR expected. Sometimes that process needs to happen in stages. I haven't used that particular "loathesome euphemism", but I've used plenty of others.
