Is this song offensive or enlightening?

    I adore this song, and I think that more people should hear it. I've heard him talk about why he wrote it, and I wonder if it actually has the effect that I think he intended.

    If you listen to the whole song, I'd like to know what you think of it:
    Don't Drink the Water by Dave Matthews

    (He starts the wrong verse at around 2:41, if you notice something odd there. I think he handles it super as always. Here is another performance with the whole band from Chicago '98, one of the best IMO. They let fans tape the shows, by the bye, and this concert is available on CD.)

    I just happened to see this American Baby recording at Abbey Road today. It's sweet. I wonder if the whole thing is available somewhere.

    What do you think of Don't Drink the Water, especially the above version (he mixes in another song with it)?
