Rather than tell you what it is about here are some lyrics:

“People matter more than laws, more than the borders.

No nation first!
We all are people first.


we won't last.”

One benefit to being an unknown artist (my last IMA award winning album sold less than 20 copies, and a year after release none of the songs had more than 20 plays on Soundcloud) is that I can speak my truth to the wind - what no one hears, offends no one.
"People matter more than places, more than religion, and God, and faith, and bible."


PEOPLE FIRST - from "Truth and Fun" by Eight Two

We can’t last
We won’t last
We can’t last long
If we don’t get along


[first voice]
We need you all
To right the wrong
We need everyone
[second voice]
We need everyone,
To right the wrong,
We need everyone,
We can’t wrong if we have everyone
We can’t go on ‘til we have everyone


People matter
More than places
More than things

We matter
More than money
More than our ideas

We matter more
Than religion

And God
And faith
And Bible

And our stories
And our worries
And status quo
And I don’t know
Why making good
And surviving should
Be at odds
With being good


People matter more than laws
More than the borders
No nation first
We all are people first
Disconnected we won’t last

We can’t last
We won’t last
We can’t last long
If we don’t get along


Everyone, we need everyone
To right the wrong, we need everyone
We can’t go on, without everyone
We can’t go wrong, if we have everyone
