There's a lot more to this song than, um, would make for a short, pithy description. It's one o' those songs, where I thought it was about one thing, but it has layers upon layers of meaning that my unconscious cooked up, unbeknownst to the rest of me, when I was writing this song.
It's about bein' a blade of grass growing through a crack in the road.
It's about how people sometimes cruise for disaster and then don't even realize it until the disaster is well-under-way.
It's about the dude sayin' "yeah us grassroots people" in the movie.
And there're more layers to it, too, but as I said, it wouldn't be pithy enuff if I tried to describe 'em.
