  1. Pretty empty head

From the recording Edge of Oblivion

Story behind the song:  
Like most of us, 9/11 really had an impact on me and forever changed the way I see the world.  I was single when it happened and in my dating over the years, I have met a number of women who knew 9/11 happened, but had no thoughts, opinions or emotions about it or what has happened in the world since.  This song is a fictional story based on my own real-life interactions with some women who have chosen to ignor what's going on in our country and the world while pursuing a life of superficial mindlessness.   This mindset is by no means limited to the female species. 

Lyrics

I remember that day
was sky filled with hate
all the thousands inside
tried but could not escape
you said what a shame
as you finished your hair
I just don’t understand
is there anyone there
don’t you wanna know don’t you even care
don’t you ever think about it
are you ever real don’t you ever feel
even just for a minute
you’re so beautiful and so wasted
are you dead
or just another pretty empty head
with the world on its heels
and death at our door
you couldn’t care less and I
couldn’t care more
you’re so into you and
we’re all so impressed
with your mannequin mind
and your Armani dress
where’s your head
you’re so beautiful and so wasted
are you dead or
just another pretty empty head
