Someone Right Now

There's this song by Fort Minor titled Right Now. It tells a tale about many different possible events happening concurrently as we are living our lives right now.

I find it a really cool idea of selecting such topic to convey via a song.

I've put pictures to represent different parts of the song they've mentioned in it.

Just remember as all of these are happening, we are lucky to be here not in any trouble of that sort.

Someone right now is walking out of the apartment and look across the streets and wondering where his car went.

Someone right now with his finger in his teeth could use a little floss.

Someone right now has stayed up all night looking at the laptop trying to get inspired.

Someone right now is coughing out blood on the sink..

..knowing it looks bad but there's nothing she can do about it.

Someone right now is stuck in Iraq and trying to get shipped back breathing

while the press back home mislead us.

Someone right now is having 25 to life.

Someone right now is standing with the corner of their thumbs up hopeful hitchhiking.

Someone right now is scratching the lottery hoping for a real winner.

Someone right now would kill for the shit that we throw away in the street.
One man's trash is the next man's treasure

Someone right now is sneaking through the border

just to eat real dinner.

Someone right now is trying to dump that rock they run around the block with

at the same time the cops is raising the glock with aim.

Someone right now is taking his first breath.

I don't think he knows what it means yet.

Right now someone's wife is robbed blind when she coming from the market.

Someone right now is guessing freedom thoughts by suicide.

Someone right now is appreciating they got a blanket in a house with no heater

because someone else right now is sleeping at the park bench with no jacket.

But no,

I'm just taking it in
From the second story hotel window again,
The TV's on, and my bags are packed,
But in this world everything can change just like that,

Just like that
