Pick Wayne's Brain

Another Takes It Apart

I recently came across a very interesting article in the Boston Globe. Titled “How Facts Backfire”, it was about how the introduction of facts into a discussion not only fails to change the mind of the person who was wrong, but it actually makes them dig in and believe what they erroneously believe even more. Which would explain why I’ve had some difficulty getting through to people with whom I disagree politically. Anyway, to give you an idea of what it’s like, I wrote this. I hope you enjoy it. You should definitely enjoy the video, because the tune is quite catchy.

Another Takes It Apart
Original words and music “Another Nail For My Heart” by Chris Difford and Glenn Tillbrook
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider

The case was made from out of his end
He did it all with a symptomatic trend
That was derangement

His mind was closed, he did not vote
He couldn’t be bothered, maybe this spoke
Of his estrangement

With folks chimin’ in
From faraway towns
Tryin’ to feel good
While not feelin’ proud

The fear in my heart
Though the argument’s sound
Another takes it apart

The fear in my heart
Though the argument’s sound
Another takes it apart

(guitar solo)

I worked like a bug
No skills from above
My hope that it’s good
Is not quite enough

When right from the start
A solution is found
Another takes it apart

Yes right from the start
A solution is found
Another takes it apart

No more excuses, those little white lies
That we imputed from watching their guys
Just go all squirmy

I couldn’t stand it, it’s bad on my heart
I stopped to wake up and I found it hard
Now it concerns me

I’ve had a hard time
My anger confined
He’s been such a fool
So long and goodbye

The fear in my heart
Though the argument’s sound
Another takes it apart
(repeat four times)
