My friend’s little sister started a game of hangman with me, and it immediately sparked an analogy to writing/composing in my head. I often have one word or phrase that I start with as inspiration and after that, it becomes a bit of a crossword puzzle or guessing game in order to finish it. This one took a long time, two years to finish! I have four versions of this song recorded, and the one above is the one that made the album.

    That was awesome. Really creative new thoughts on an old game. I extremely appreciate how this song can portray a relation to many aspects in life. Thanks for making it.


    This guy looks for inspiration everywhere, all the time. If I did that, I would be a better songwriter.

    Formally, a little like George Harrison’s Think For Yourself with a little touch of paranoia.
