James Morrison -- The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore

I can't explain why it's not enough
Cause I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Oh just leave me now
It's the better thing to do
It's time to surrender
It's been too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore

The talk is on the Super-committee this Sunday, with its recommendations due this Wednesday. Almost all the shows have booked a member to talk about those oh-so-necessary sacrifices that each American needs to make. Don't get me wrong...the country needs desperately to move to a different, more equitable track. I just don't see anyone on the Super-committee having the integrity or courage to really make the necessary changes. When one in three Americans are at or near the poverty level, giant corporation Verizon gets tax rebates, regular people are pepper sprayed for simply exercising their constitutional right to non-violent protests, and everything the Republicans do is to keep one percent of the population from paying just a few percentage points more in taxes, let's face it: the pieces don't fit anymore.
