With a title like “Hypocrisy” this post could be about a lot of different stuff. There is so much hypocrisy in our world that this could be about anything.

Hypocrisy met judgment 
Mistakes were made 

These are the first lines of my song called “Statue of Liberty.” I have no idea what this song is about. Apparently, it’s about hypocrisy or maybe judgement. When I wrote it, I might have known what it was about. I know it was inspired by politics and protests and the social response to the protests. It was also inspired by a poetic bible verse about snakes that I read in a book where the protagonist is an eleven year old British girl that solves murders. It’s also about how my wife hates it when I move a piece of furniture even a little bit. Change is hard. Change is also the only constant. The world shifts in tiny increments and soon it becomes unrecognizable. Maybe that is the hypocrisy. We can’t wait to put things back to the way they used to be but we complain that the old ways were unjust. It’s all bitter grapes.
