I think this song came out at a perfect time. Everybody hurts right now in these days.
And I know I'm only 1 out of 7 billion who "hurt". I'm totally aware of that and accept it. I'm no one special. I'm just able to convey my
emotions through music that I can just happen to create.
I can't wait, however, to take the focus off of me in future songs and start singing about cool things, like conspiracies, space, philosophy, the
meaning of life, etc.
Damn - I'm so excited about that Mars rover (Curiosity) that I may make a song about that! Just kidding, but I do want to sing about other things
I think this song finally got out most of my turmoil, and I was able to turn that turmoil into an object of pride and ingenuity.
As my friend said to me about 10 years ago when he visited me for the first time in years and saw that I was recording music. He said, "Haha, Erik.
You're so depressed, but you take that depression and turn it into music that you can be proud of! How cool is that?!"
I never forgot those words.
