My entire 2010 RPM Album had songs along the same line as your lyrics. I agree completely with what you're saying. ER

I like the overall idea but I have a couple suggestions for the lyrics. First, it's a little clumsy; I've never heard "401k" sound poetic. Second, you sing about a character who's lost his future, but you don't show how this happened. Especially in light of the "401k" and "faceless concerns" lines, the picture that I'm getting is of a guy who's been trapped by his own choices, both productive (career) and consumptive -- while this absolutely can be a compelling story, it has to told, and with some introspection. Jess used to tell me, "Show it, don't say it". I think the key album to listen to for songs of this sort is Bruce Springsteen's The River, especially the title track. For all his characters that have lost there futures, there's a story. Sorry if I'm being a lyrics snob, it's just what I am. Thanks for writing about these ideas, it needs to be done.

Very poignant - a 21st century parallel to Phil Ochs.
