Not a moment of the song is wasted, for it begins almost immediately. Upon the drums coming into the mix it all rocks back and forth with such care. Layer upon layer of sound comes into the fray, from the glistening glow of the organ swells to the expressive guitar work. Indeed, the guitars have a classic rock sort of fervor to them, possessing just the right level of edge to them. The lyrics focus on the desire to break free from the mundane, to embrace the wonderful uncertainty that the world can bring. For the last stretch of the work Kristin Rebecca becomes particularly playful, allowing only vocals to remain standing proud.
