About the song:
Sometimes a songwriter doesn’t write a song. Sometimes a song just goes ahead and writes itself. Sometimes I just go along for the ride.
“Taste An Escape” is one of those songs.
I was on the road listening to a typical regional news cast on the radio and I began to make up headlines of my own. I don’t know why. Maybe to break the boredom of driving.
“I actually ended up writing ‘Taste An Escape’ as an imagined “breaking news” story.”
For some reason, I imagined very clearly, the headline, “Teenagers of the World Became Self Aware at 2:10pm Today. More at 6.”

I liked that idea, so I began to expand on the idea implied in my mock headline. Again, at this point I was just messing around. I certainly didn’t think I was writing a song.
A surreal story unfolded and the narrative ended up sounding a lot like lyrics to me; lyrics to a song about escape.
