Album Notes
When we realize that some of the values and choices of our family are not our own, its not that they did something wrong — its that we’re growing up. The woman in this song has been longing for freedom and now that she’s an independent adult, she realizes that her parents’ house has been haunting her. She laments, “I visit claustrophobic rooms whispering, “Do you recall the wishes and wanderlust within these walls?” The strong, rock drums punctuate the discordant guitar chords that resolve into the bridges, declaring, “My true self…” and “My new life…” and arriving at “I’m flying on my own!”
