Story behind the song
It is becoming increasingly hard to understand, and to get behind, todays concerns and so-called movements.
Lyrics
"That Empathetic Man" Words & Music by Tom Tognaci Could I walk a hundred miles, on the soles of broken shoes? Could I lose everything I ever had to lose? Could I sleep aside a road? Could I dream shivering cold? Could I be that homeless face, wrung out and old? I once was known as a man who gave a damn The kind of guy who would strive to understand But as this Country now bemoans White guilt and comfort zones It’s getting hard to be that empathetic man ~ Instrumental~ Yea, I once was known as a man who gave a damn The kind of guy who would strive to understand But using kids to lite the fuse On the bombs thrown by fake news Yea, it’s getting hard to be that empathetic man Would I stand, could I face, those hateful hearts of stone? Could I practice what I preach when I stand alone? Could I kick the man that’s down? Or, would I help him off the ground? Would I show mercy when the tables turn around? Yea, I once was known as a man who gave a damn The kind of guy who would strive to understand But, berate this great Country, With a finger and a knee You aren’t going to find that empathetic man
