"People ask me if my life's changed/
Here's what I might say/
Not really. Not really.
...Same pants, different crease/
Same pan, different grease/
Same sand, different beach/
It's not often there's a piece of art that helps you through something traumatic that was way beyond the artist intention of the work. But that what makes it art. Interpretation by others through their personal experiences. It's even rarer that you get to share how that art helped you by sharing your story with its creator.
After I was hospitalized for burns from the fire I was in depression but was also determined to get back to my old sense of self again. @homeboysandman track "Not Really" became my rallying mantra on not getting bogged down and helped me out immensely. I got to share a quick but if that story last night with the cat. He was gracious and humble and I've got much respect for his dedication to his craft and his fans. Thanks for creating.
