At the root of a flood all there is are tiny drops of water. When you tear it apart that's all it is. And when all those little, harmless drops of water come together there is a devastating effect.
At the root of The Flood all there is are tiny little emotions. That's all there ever was. You may focus on the bad, but the good is there too. And when all those little tiny emotions come together a person is living a life.
In this most recent Flood I have had two haircuts. I decided to do some things I regret. I also did some wonderful things that I don't want to forget. I made some close friends. I looked at beautiful paintings and listened to heavenly music. Three people ran away, but they promised me that they would be back. I swear I believe them.
I wrote this album for that most recent Flood of mine and for all the other Floods I've seen. Some of those are mine and some are others.
Don't get comfortable or you'll drown and it will be hard to rescue you.
I love you.
