What good am I some like all the rest
If I just turn away when I see how you're dressed
If I shut myself off so I can't hear you cry
What good am I?

    One of his best songs from the 80's.

    Hmm... is it just that Bob and I have very similar problems, or was his '80s writing acutely and exceptionally insightful about the moral side of human life? "I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame and every time I pass that way I always hear my name." "He worships at an altar of a stagnant pool and when he sees his reflection, he's fulfilled." "People don't do what they believe in. They just do what's most convenient, then they repent." "They tell me revenge is sweet, and from where they stand, I'm sure it is." And here, of course... "What good am I if I know and don't do?"
