zolop I like the orchestration in this song. The singer sings in a calm clear The writing in the song reflects the nature of our society. "We all need to be head, there are some that will need to be found, but we don't always know how". People fall through the cracks within society ironic tendencies/indifference/Pride, arrogance. Favorite track: Mute With A Bullhorn.


"When I look around I see a lot of things that are worth keeping: the mountain tops of Appalachia, family and community farms, art and music in schools, and, most of all, a government by the people and for the people. But how? The challenge that our leaders and us face is that we don’t know how to accomplish these goals. There are many eloquent ideas out there about renewable energy, educational systems, and governing, but realizing them means trying new things; which is daunting at least, and terrifying at most. As my generation takes the reins we should not sacrifice some qualities of this nation and the land in its boundaries to the wayfaring spirit of economy. They are important for Americans, our children, and the rest of the world. These thoughts inspired these two new songs. But they are only songs…" - Ben Sollee
