If your friend is passionate about something, then it’s important to you too: because this is important to your friend. You don’t have to get it, but don’t be the one who rags on it. Why would you even do that? Why strangle a voice? Why dampen passion when there is so little of it in the world? Rejoice with those rejoice, mourn with those who mourn, and maybe you should join your friend on that adventure.

"The Unwinding Cable Car" was a song that I wrote in Seattle, Washington. And the message behind it was that there was somebody in my life that had it so very well, so well. But they they couldn’t see it. They were basically in such a turmoil to get to the future that they didn’t realize what they had in the present. So instead of focusing on that, they focused on this internal self absorbed place that, instead of saying, ‘Wow, I live in Seattle, Washington, I have this incredible job, I have these beautiful friends around me,’ instead we’re saying, ‘I’m so scared of the future, I don’t know what’s going to happen, my life is horrible, I’m in such a dark place.’

And it was just one of those moments where you just need to stop. Just stop everything, take a giant step back and reevaluate your life and what you have now and stop focusing on a future that no one can ever predict. No one can tell you what tomorrow brings, so why worry? Don’t worry about tomorrow, you did that yesterday. That’s the whole basis of the song.
