Keith Moody Singled Out Week: One Big Ending
The inspiration for this song is the idea that you have to fight for your soul. In a very apathetic world, you can easily just follow the "plan" and if you have a tangible view of what your dream is you can become an outcast, especially if the dream is simply to go for what you need to be happy. Those things are different for everyone, but I feel that most fear admitting to themselves what those things really are. The "heroine" of the story is told from the time she is small that "Look this is how life is…this is what you're supposed to do". She doesn't see it that way and refuses to succumb to the pressure of living the way everyone else seemingly expects and thinks she should. In my world you were expected to stay the course which was college, marriage and then kids. If you wanted something different, or even wanted these things in a different order, you are really somewhat tolerated by those around you and not truly accepted. I believe this is a microcosm of American society and one of its great flaws. I travel a lot and realize that the "plan" is different for the masses in different regions, but I feel the last barrier to personal freedom is just allowing everyone live their life their way, free of judgment and pressure. God only gives us one life and we aren't guaranteed how long we get, so it is very important to seek those things we need to be happy and let everyone else seek theirs. The song embodies in this woman's story a sort of victory anthem for doing your own thing, living your life your way and being victorious in finding those things that make you happy.
