Freedom


Freedom is a just a pretty way of saying you’ve gone off the grid…For better or for worst —-you’re out of options. But we call it freedom; write songs about it, you probably crank them in your car, never thought about it much. Some people think it’s exhilarating not having your future mapped out; others start to drown in all that nothing. Maybe you will enjoy it for a moment, the purity of doing what you want, when you want; beer for breakfast, sex in the afternoon, but obligations sneak up, duty, moral code. Some of us are wired to put ourselves back into cages. Freedom is the moment of calm before the dread sets in. Because no matter what you freed yourself from you only get down so far down the open road, car windows down, music blasting before you are force to make a turn, make a choice, sentence yourself to the next adventure…
