About the artist

Have you seen the TED Talk: How to Make Something From Nothing?
All you need is a motive and a grain of sand.
Though that last part might be something, there is sand everywhere.
It’s the motive that’ll get you there!

And I said “Oh. Oh no, I did not know!”

You don’t have to tell them that you made something from nothing.
You can lie and tell them there was something all along.
And if you still got that feeling, and your brains ain’t on the ceiling,
You can put your pain to song.

You’re never more lonely than when your dealer won’t even call you back.
How are you supposed to cope with that?

There’s no point in looking backwards when your whole life’s moving forwards.
Let momentum take you with its awesome tide!
All the memories behind you have no right to stop or blind you
from all your present good times.

You’re so high and mighty.
Though you ain’t really, you’ve just been winning.
That doesn’t take away the sting of my own bottomless losing.

I wish you well, I do.
I wish you well, I do.
I hope you wish me well too.
I hope you wish me well.

To every new purpose given, there is hope that we’ll be making gains upon the purposes that folks bestow.

For the effort put into it must yield a gratuity, or else the endeavor’s a joke.

And I said “Oh. Oh no, I did not know!”
