about

I am posting this one track, "Heroes & Criminals" in order to donate money to help refugees. ALL proceeds that I receive from the sale of this song will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) starting today (1/29/2017) and will end on 2/28/2017 unless I extend this effort further.

lyrics

Heroes & Criminals

Who’s holding us down, turning us back
Our bloodstained bodies, fall in their tracks
All we need is help, someone to care
All we need is a reason, a reason to care

Heroes and criminals fighting it out
Heroes and criminals, I don’t know which
Heroes and criminals, the meaning’s all wrong
Because in this life, all heroes are gone

Push our people back, back into the sea
Treat us like dogs, for all eternity
Threaten us, bomb us, and lead us to slaughter
Feed us shelter us, it doesn’t really matter

Heroes and criminals fighting it out
Heroes and criminals, I don’t know which
Heroes and criminals, the meaning’s all wrong
Because in this life, all heroes are gone

Use your weapons wisely, go for the kill
If you don’t get us now, you never will
Revolution is coming, can’t you can feel it near
Behold the uprising, can you feel the fear
Can you feel the fear
Can you feel the fear
Can you feel the fear
Can you feel the fear

Scott Leslie Vero Beach, Florida

In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences. ... more
