This song looks at the implications of an old Springsteen fragment of lyric. I use five tracks to record this. A Martin and a metal biscuit resonator slide guitar.

It's supposed to be hypnotic and show the dangers we face all around us if we aren't careful to keep within those shadowy ideas that keep us safe when walking in the rain by the river East from Locust Street.
