Mount Everest - Letters From The Apocalypse
This song is about a specific feeling that I’ve had that can only be described by attempting to imagine an impossibly strange scenario.
This is the scenario and the feeling:
You are so wrapped up in your unfulfilled goals that the only option seems to be to run away and become one of those crazy religious zealots outside of the baseball stadium who hands out apocalyptic literature about revelations and assures people that they are going to hell.
The hope is that somehow by doing this you will unlock the potential hidden within you to accept the life you have, rather than pining for one you haven’t made yet. Once you have done this you can then meet and fall in love with an equally lost and narcissistic soul who has also taken a chance on an insane lifestyle and thus found the hidden potential within to accept the world the way it is.
Are you still with me? It is a song about restlessness and it is my favorite song that I’ve written since the fall.
