Inspired by the Baudelaire orphans from 'a Series of Unfortunate Events'.
How do you cope with your reality when you've lost everything?
When things get rough, life can sometimes feel like you are drowning in a vast tumultuous sea, powerful waves crashing over you and out of your control, struggling to keep your head above water and stay afloat.
This song is an introduction to a story. The opening notes are reflective, like stones skipping over water. The interval of a major seventh is one that lacks resolution, like the weight of your past which hangs over you.
Some of us choose to face our problems head on, others choose to run.
The old saying, fight or flight.
Sometimes, it is okay to run. And like the unfolding soaring melodies in this piece, sometimes running away, is freedom.
