Title: Free as in Freedom

Description: "And if it comes back to being all alone at the starting gate, so be it. We hadn't wanted this fuss, these extras. We were calm under an appearance of turmoil, and so we remain even today, an unwanted inspiration to those who come immediately after as well as those who came before, lots of them, stretching back into times of discussion. I told you so, we can handle it, hand on the stick shift headed into the billboard labeled Tomorrow, the adventures of new music, melismas shrouding the past and the passing days."
