“This is a song about a series of fires that happened in the small college town that I used to live in that claimed multiple lives. They weren’t arsons, just old buildings with old electrical work, gas systems, and faulty space heaters. Before that winter, my relationship with the idea of fire was based on sound advice–stay low to avoid smoke, tap door knobs to feel if there is a fire on the other side–but I didn’t really have any real fear that my home could be utterly destroyed out of nowhere, and I definitely never thought about how I might not be able to get out. Watching a fire where I learned that a couple, younger than I was at the time, hadn’t been able to escape instilled in me a pretty deep fear of fire and made me contemplate my own beliefs that I could escape catastrophe.”
