I developed the song around a buddhist prayer recital recorded in Myanmar.

The rhythmic flow of the music was inspired by the swing-like clattering train sound heard at the beginning of the track.


I sit inside to rest my weary knees
The staring begins; I feel a grin
Cutting through my cheeks

And I know I can’t change you
But I know I’ll remember how pure

You are and how vain it makes me feel
To wish the world and resent a place
You would like to proudly call your


And I know I can’t change you
But I know I’ll remember the smiles

And cries that made me who I am
The beauty and the sympathy that shook my prudent hand

And I’ll try to remember
