Q: 'SIN AND STONE' Great song bro!....But,.... for you, personally, is this your desired final answer, or the only answer left in the pile, after you discarded all the ones that obviously, bullshit?
A: I'm not sure I'm clear on the question, but I'll take a shot at answering by saying, although many lines in the song come from things experienced in my life, I am not, in fact, the poor soul who cries" all hope is gone...never had a chance to fly". For although I may not have reached the financial success I'd hoped for, my musical journey has been fairly fantastic. I have gone many places, and made many friends, and had people tell me that my music touched them somewhere deep, and that is my first, best, destiny! So in that sense, I have had "a chance to fly". Hey, financial success would be great, but, like Captain Matthews, I keep my treasure chest of memories, and they are... more valuable than gold!
