“South Side Suicide I get asked a lot about the lyrics to South Side Suicide. Often times I look back on some songs and realize they're not stories as much as they are raw emotion. How are you feeling at that moment? There are times when different circumstances converge at once and create a feeling...an emotion....South Side is one of those songs. A good friend of mine had just died in a motorcycle accident. Another friend of a friend had just died and it was later found to be a suicide. All of this brought up emotions (and sometimes selfish ones) of a feeling that time isn't on our side. And WTF!!!! What about all of us you left behind? I've been questioning life, death & time since I was about 6. Morbid little bastard I was. When I read the lyrics without music I think, well...do they even make sense? But with the music I think the raw feeling & pissed of emotion comes through. I'm a songwriter after all. Not a Poet.....so I hope it works. You can judge. http://www.youtube.com/wa”
