Live piano demo of a cautionary tale with still images;
Lyrics at www.MoonbirdMusic.us

A decade after I wrote this song "The Usual Suspects" came out, a great mystery whodunit. Kevin Spacey's character, Verbal Kint, had a great line: "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof, he's gone." The film ends with a repeat of those lines and, recognizing the gist of my song and the theme of the film are quite related, I closed this video with images of Kevin Spacey saying, "poof, he's gone" because I figure the folks who know the film will recognize it.
