Wash Your Hands To This Townes Van Zandt Song That Is Still Far Less Depressing Than Reality

The late Texas country singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt knew how to write a depressing song. Few fit the bill better than his classic "Waitin' Round To Die", which despite laying bare a life of pain and suffering with no point or direction before "finding a friend at last" in Opioid dependence, is STILL heaps cheerier than the actual reality around you as major Western governments appear to happily sacrifice vulnerable sections of their populations instead of mobilising the huge resources required to confront an unprecedented crisis.

And that's just the climate situation.

So as you wash your hands in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus so we can enjoy the last handful of years left before climate change causing civioisation to collapse once and for all, why not cheer yourself up by humming this ditty that is `000 times happier than the real world. Oh to have an empty future of alienation and pain instad of... what is happening and will get worse.
