Did you ever feel yourself sinking and not realizing why?? It's fear …. Fear I tell you ….people!… 'Free Wind' talks about going down the road less travelled due to fear of change. As one of the line states in the song, "Head first I've heard is the best way. I'm not getting any younger, makes no sense to hold on longer."
