Dear listener: It was not my intention - but 5 out of 9 songs on this cd contain what sounds suspiciously like "advice"
(Take Franklin Avenue, Don't get your hopes up, Don't worry about God, Watch your back, Better sharpen your knife)
Having said that - Please consider these two Oscar Wilde quotes:                               
"I always pass on good advice. It is never of any use to oneself."
