Naked Human Shields

Yes, I realize it's Tuesday and I'm a day late posting the first song of this week. But, sometimes, when you try to do art, things go horribly wrong. This week, then, honors those rare moments when despite my best efforts things don't go exactly as planned, the train jumps the tracks, and what you're left with is a catastrophic trainwreck. Yes it's "Unmitigated Disaster" week.

First up is song number 2 of 2 of my doomed "Interactive Songwriting Song" project ("Urine Stains on the Carpet" being song number 1 of 2). The idea was the first reply to a 'blog post would dictate the topic of the song I'd write that week. Someone suggested I write a song about those naked war protesters who were hanging out in Iraq before the war. For some incredibly stupid reason I did the song and didn't end up cancelling the project until the following week.

Anyway, the good news is this is pretty much as bad as it gets. The bad news is that it's pretty darn bad.
