www.michaeltomlinson.com My girlfriend, Patricia, taped me at home in Seattle,singing by the fire in February '08. Living Things is one of those songs that I've played at nearly every concert since the early 90s. The meaning of the lyrics seems to deepen as time goes on and I find myself singing it like I just wrote it. There are lines about paying attention to our precious planet and about loving each other and the animals we share this world with more compassionately. But ultimately, I've always thought of it as a song about being more gentle with ourselves, less judgmental and more accepting. It's a message I need to be reminded of myself, now and then." ~ MT
