"It would be wrong for me to say 'Yes, we can change the world with a song' -but every time I try writing, that's where I'm at. I'm not stupid. I'm aware of the futility of rock 'n' roll music. But I'm also aware of it's power."
The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
