    "Stream" follows in the tradition of fine Minnesota bands like The Replacements.

Q: "smiling in a hole" sounds like a pretty eloquent and intense track about waste and grief...what inspired the song to be written? The imagery in it is so potent!
A: Thanks for asking. The song is actually inspired by a quote from Gandhi that went "They can break my bones, torture my body, and yes even kill me, but then they will have my dead body and not my obedience" So it's about defiance in the face of horrible suppression. The second half is a bit of a theatrical curve ball where I recast the same theme in a gangsta rap scenario.
