Have to reduce my rating to 6 - really over this song, and it's really just a sad commentary on her depression and low self-esteem ending in tragedy.

And before all the socially conservatives jump on my ass and accuse me of trying to give away their hard earned money to worthless people, I'm not advocating kicking you out of your house for them and giving the bum your job.  I just thing that if we funnelled the money wasted on drug enforcement and the cost of the imprisonment of addicts to a proven drug treatment system, everyone would be better off.  Less crime, less drugs on the street, less overcrowding in the prisons, less actually dangerous people getting let out of prison early due to overcrowding, and most importantly, less people dying due to lack of treatment and education.
Great song.

As long as prisons are big business -- and they are BIG business - this will never happen.  We WANT to throw people in jail - $$$$$

And to you Amy Thank you for sacrificing yourself so that others, more ignorant than yourself, could learn from the loosing hand you were dealt in life, for some of us our loss, your sacrifice is not in vain.

The same could be said of scores of writers and artists before her.  Of course, there have been many more drunks with very little insight.

I'm finding that as time separates the now from the insanity of hype surrounding AW during her career, I am learning to appreciate her music more and more.  Too bad her life was such a train wreck, but that's probably what made her music so great.  hell of a trade off.
