Lyrics below:

By your bedside I cried as I wondered
Is there really any hope?
For the suffering, the pain
The condition is the same
It's out of my control
But I'll be here
Hoping for you
I care enough to stay
Faithful everyday
Bold enough to say, "Don't be afraid!"
'Cause I believe a price was paid
And there is a medicine
(There is a medicine)
A "priceless for the worthless" trade
Trade for the medicine
Nothing is stronger, no greater the need
The only way to take this sickness away
(Take this sickness away)
'Cause I can't take it away
And I'm forced here to stare on the outside
Where nothin' e…

Jason Matthew talks about how the song was released in late 1987 but peaked in early 1988. So it has been over 30 years.

Spiral Dynamics Stage Yellow Border Wall Commentary

In this episode of Culture Stroke, Host Jason Matthews gives his take on the US - Mexico Border Wall dilemma.

Jason Matthews says we cannot look at this issue with a black and white solution. He gives his take from a Spiral Dynamics Stage Yellow perceptive.

Matthews says the border wall will not work for a variety of reasons including corrupt Border Patrol Agents, tunneling under the wall, and the money behind the cartels. He also acknowledges we cannot let everyone in or continue on the course we are on.

Matthews throws out the idea of talking directly to the migrants and asking them what their exact motivation is for coming to the United States. Once he has that information, a course of action could be formalized. However, he says it make take a multi stage approach.

Matthews says the only way a solution will work is if we tackle the issue from many angles and with accurate information.

Spiral Dynamics Stage Orange Border Wall Commentary

In this episode of Culture Stroke, Rossi Ricco comes on and has a very detailed solution to the border wall controversy.

Rossi Ricco says President Donald Trump's math on the cost of a wall is off. He says we are going to need a lot more money than that to build the wall. He also says Trump said Mexico was going to pay for the wall.

Ricco says he has a better solution and he has done extensive research into the matter. He stated we can make Mexico pay for the wall. According to Ricco, the solution is to invade Mexico, specifically, Michoacan because most of the needed materials for the wall are there. However, we would only strategically invade that area.

Ricco then gives details on how the construction of the wall will work. He gives details about making illegal aliens pay their crimes through work labor. However, he said we would have to encroach 5 feet into Mexico to build the wall to avoid United States labor laws.

Ricco gives further details including a path to citizenship fo…
