32 Songs - Track 18

Burn One Down - Ben Harper

If you don't like my fire
then don't come around
cos I'm gonna burn one down

A song about smoking marijuana is the inital impression. And for many it is the lasting impression as well. But I like to take it one step further as this song encapsulates my entire world view in three short lines.

your choice is who you choose to be
and if you're causin' no harm
then you're alright with me

Wouldn't the world be a much nicer place if we all thought like this?

It might also be a nicer place if we all took Ben's advice to burn one down.

It would certainly increase Tim Tam sales.
