about

There is pain all around us, so close we should feel it when we breathe. Sometimes there's nothing we can do, and sometimes the best we can do is just not be a part of the problem

lyrics

He is in pain, right next door
Addiction is life, when life isn’t living anymore
She has no value, can’t buy a dime
And isn’t worth measured, these days, by the bottom line

He has no roof, or doors, and a heart of disdain
And only running water on days when it rains
She hates her life, and cries all the time
when there’s no room left to keep it bottled up inside

When we can love each other
Each and every other other
When people trump profit
When that’s what we’re taught
Then we will know each other
Then we will see each other
When we can hear each other
Only then can we talk

I don’t understand us, what happened to compassion
Should we by now not have opened our eyes?
Then why are we still so unwise?
Still so blind

He sits alone, with a bottle of gin
And keeps another close, in case he wakes up again
She’s growing tired, fading fast
But poverty wins, and in the end, all she wants is half a chance

They just don’t get it, none truly care
They’re in their own world, that no one can share
I’m not on your path, you’re not on mine
But we should remember that our roads will meet at the end of time

When we can love each other
Each and every other other
When people trump profit
When that’s what we’re taught
Then we will know each other
Then we will see each other
When we can hear each other
Only then can we talk
Then we can talk

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
