"This album is an actual physical landscape. There are places & details & fragments of a real life rather than an imaginary life."

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
