GRRR. I have never been able to get past that very obnoxious "brick" song. The selfishness of those lyrics have forever colored my views of this artist and it would take an appology song to make me give him another chance.
Interesting how judgemental we can be? Before asking for an apology perhaps one should really understand where, and in which context a writer is writing from? In his live album Ben explains that this song is about a very sad moment in his life, when he and his girlfriend had to decide upon having an abortion. ..... this song is not try to be a political statement...... he was just writing about how he felt at the time.
