One of the more common themes in my music, when I'm doing what I like to think I do best, that is, is the elevation of the common or the mundane to an uncommon or slightly more revered state of being ("Shelly", "Coloring Monsters", "60 Ton Whale" -- though the last one does it kind of irreverently I guess). This song is one of those songs.
Is this song about your soul, or is it about the afterimage you see after looking at your computer monitor for a while then closing your eyes very tightly? Do the two have more in common than you think? Anyway, a few people like this song and I guess I'm one of them.
