“This song is a concept I’ve been wanting to write about for some time but couldn’t find the words before. Most of us, at some point or another, slip into a routine of daily life that blurs days and months and sucks the meat out of our time and makes everything wispy and too fast. Constant messages, beeps, buzzes, clicks, leading to predictable patterns and then memories of patterns replace memories of moments. Time seems to slip by and life starts feeling shorter. Expectation to be somewhere and do something is always around. In that mess of “normal” life the “open road” or a “trip to nowhere”, becomes a drug to break the cycle. The narrator is on the brink of leaving on such a trip where nothing is expected and therefore nothing can bother him. Over time the wilderness allows him to face himself and come to terms with his limitations. Then, like the life left behind, the road also becomes cyclical and weary.” – Chris Haw
