Concrete Blonde - Tomorrow Wendy
About a young lady whose life fell apart after the manufacturing jobs left her town. Turned to drugs and prostitution as a life style choice. She got
AIDS. Despondent and depressed, she pens a letter to God expressing her doubts and pains. The next day she stands up for herself and lives the life
she wants to live by committing suicide. That is the true story of events behind the lyrics.
For years after, people would still get upset because, "it is anti-Christian and glorifies suicide," according to them. I see it as empowerment and a
warning sign to live your life because you never know what is going to happen.
New Model Army - Ballad of Bodmin Pill
A nice upbeat song about being scared and afraid to live life.
We are lost, we are freaks,
we are crippled, we are weak...
we are the heirs, we are the true heirs to all the world.
We are all damaged in some way (some more than others) but we are here. Now. You are not alone. It is "we".
Plus others, I'm sure, but those two stand out right at this moment.
