‘Thank You Matey’ – Length 5:37
Kevin was homeless at age 14. He ran drugs. He robbed a bank. He was a heroin addict for 20 years. He’s lost many street friends to drugs. He stopped when his best mate overdosed. He is now clean, married and works to help the homeless.

– Cathryn Kemp, Painkiller Addict: From Wreckage to Redemption – My True Story
