This was the last song Marconi tackled. We only played it live once and never recorded it, so I've retooled it here as a sort of remix. It took a long time for Marconi to get to more collaborative arrangement and this was the most democratic attempt. It was, fittingly, a song about the uncertainty and prospect of such a new balance of creative guidance and took inspiration from the concurrent uncertainty and prospect of the then unfolding Arab Spring. Against all best intentions—in Egypt, as well—it appears tyranny has triumphed: Now it's a solo release.
Much credit is nevertheless due to Robert, Jason, and Jeff for their work on the song. And many thanks to James Towlson for contributing his typically excellent harmonies.
