Prologue - by Dave Friend This song was inspired by an encounter that I had along with Shael (lead singer for Sun Tower) where we ran into a street kid in downtown Vancouver one evening when we were heading to the studio. We talked to him for a while and asked him why he was living on the street and he said that was the only option. We asked him about his parents and why he wouldn't just go home and he told us he just couldn't do that. It was so sad - there was really nothing we could do for him except give him some change and wish him well. The street is no place for anyone, let alone a kid. This song is dedicated to all kids who have no choice but to live on the street and I hope this raises awareness to the reality of this tragic circumstance. Thanks for listening!
