5. Something Happened

I don't remember what vague emotional connection I felt to the character in the book by Joseph Heller with the same name. I'm sure there must have been some. But what I do remember is that the last line should be ”When I look into your eyes, you just smile and you show me scars on your arms”. However, I don't think anyone ever knew or heard that, and when Tina was about to record backing vocals for this, I told her to sing ”ART on your arms”. It may seem like an insignificant detail, but for me it represented the first conflict between my writing and my immediate social surroundings. The thing was, when I sung "scars on your arms", I was referring to someone close, and I didn't know whether it'd be okay to sing it, whether I would expose something that I didn't have the right to expose. I think I wrote something else in the lyrics sheet for the vinyl EP as well. I was that insecure about it - and I didn't want to discuss it with the person whom it concerned. What strange corners you paint yourself into from time to time.

6. On His Right Side

Not old enough to be relaxed about. Time is a great friend in that sense.
