In October of 2014, things were getting incredibly stressful in our lives. Joe’s brain cancer was back with a vengence and so was his head pain. We made the decision to put him on steroids in September and the drugs exaggerated and complicated reality. As caregiver and wife, it was becoming increasingly difficult to maintain any assemblance of normalcy and it was becoming increasingly more important for me to hold true to my center and to myself, no matter what.
I was angry; I was angry at the disease, at the drugs, and what they had both done to my husband. I wrote this song in response to those emotions. It came out like a hymn. When Mike Tittel, Jon and I were in the studio the very first day, Mike used the term “biblical”. I really liked that. It has a slow processional feel with an ethereal vibe delivered by Mike Landis’ mix.
