Misc. Comments

The bare bones of the first piece (i.e.the initial 5 measures) were drafted at an uncertain date and expanded for this project. The lyrics to this and the other projected pieces are centered around the notion of how our actions run contrary to our thoughts. The title was coined spontaneously with no extraneous reference in mind. The second piece refers to a childhood experience. The others are of a speculative nature.
