And now I know you’re dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don’t you understand
It’s not my problem
I wish that for just one time

You could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is
To see you

Fascinating the amount of issues that two people - or governments- can fight over. Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, every contintent on the planet, every human religion, a collection of a few billions lacking the common sense and pragmatic outlook to resolve their disputes. Make the jump»
