Background: "Hospice"

Wrote this while fumbling around on the bass yesterday and added it to the album. For whatever reason it triggered a few memories long stored way. Nearly eighteen years ago I was a sophomore at Southwest High School, taking horticulture as an elective. Along with a few others in the class I volunteered to landscape and maintain the grounds at the newly built AIDS hospice center in Fort Worth, which I continued to do for about a year. During that time I also made friends with some of the residents but continually watching people that I cared about die got the best of me. Taking the coward's route I stopped going, which I am ashamed of doing.

Two bass parts, three chords, one vocal, mono.
