Wife on Mars... Could Spit in the Eyes of Fools

As someone who spent the better part of the early 90s with a horrendous heroin addiction (lost our family, friends, and spent couple years living on the LA streets until we got our lives together- thanks to the magic of a pregnant street cat who gave us 6 lives to live for), I am sending this young lady all my love and positive thoughts. Not familiar with her music, but she seems like someone trying to make her corner of the world a better place. 💜
