Singled Out: Sarantos's Surgery
This is a powerful rock song about someone having surgery. Surgery is what they need, even though they are scared and terrified inside their own mind. Until you are in these shoes, it is hard to imagine what patients go thru. There is a sense of fear that is real despite what people portray on the outside. I really felt that I had to write a song about surgery and what is going on in the depths of a patient's mind before a procedure. I searched and searched and although I found a few songs about surgery, nothing specific stood out and certainly nothing that made it to the top of the charts. I know it's probably not a subject that is appealing to the radio charts, but I felt the need to do it anyway. I truly feel patients will find this relatable and find a sense of calm in listening to this before any procedure and admitting to themselves that it's ok to accept this fear as a normal part of the process. Acceptance can be therapeutic. They can then deal with this event and move on with their lives.
There is a sense of anxiety and frustration being put in a helpless situation. We are used to being in control. The song is about putting life in the hands of someone else which is both humbling and terrifying. I thought it would also be fun to put some clues and subtle hints in the music video that might one day mean something significant to the diehard fan! My journey continues.
