I can't bring about a cure to Ebola. I don't have much to offer. I'm not a doctor. I'm not a millionaire. But I don't have to just stand by and watch. I could give from what I have. I'd encourage you to think, what do you have to give?
I've always taken quite a personal approach when it comes to the subject matter of my lyrics. It's not something I remember making a conscious decision about. It just sort of happened.
