Live By The Gun – Single
Like many songs on this album, Live By The Gun is another extension into the exploration of good vs. evil. Not every song telling a story is about a hero in white. Reality is dirty. Gritty. But there is still a tale to be told there, and empathy and compassion play important roles in understanding our own humanity. The challenge with this song was pushing John initially in the direction of examining the path of a “bad man”, and the choices he made, and still leaving spaces for the listener to use their imagination.
