showmewhatworks.org is a collection of songs. Mostly by Lloyd Ferris.

Songs about…

  • history
  • economics, and…
  • how we can all get along

Oh, and spirituality. We mustn’t forget spirituality.

So who is Lloyd Ferris?

I’m someone who came of age at the height of the cold war, when the choices given me by the media, academia, and other members of that poor scapegoat I used to call “society”, were mostly…

  • Live in a dog eat dog world — or — have an economy micromanaged by some despot who will send me to rot in a Gulag if I don’t tow his line.
  • Believe I go to oblivion when I die — or — be a fuzzy brain who just doesn’t get “science”.
  • Bomb the heck out of our enemies — or — just roll over and surrender.

I didn’t like any of those choices. So, in my twenties, I quit the music business for good for the first time, and set out to discover if, in truth, those were really the only choices.

My song collection is a result of that journey. I will be adding new ones as I record them.
