Discuss the origin of the title.
We opted to call the record Drunkard's Prayer, which was the name of the first song we recorded for this project, a song that sort of set the tone for the record. Maybe that's why we need songwriters: when we run out of words to pray, sometimes a song will do the trick.
We decided to put a white horse on the cover, because that image has been associated with redemption. The songs on this record tell the story of two people finding their way back home after almost losing everything, each other included.
We also liked the fact that Drunkard's Prayer sounded like the name of a race horse, a long shot, a horse with little chance of winning, but the one you've got all your money on.
Drunkard's Prayer - Everybody wants to be drunk on the good stuff--drunk on life, love, music, the wine of God and what not. In the New Testament, when the believers were first filled with the Holy Spirit and started speaking in tongues, the onlookers thought they were drunk. It takes some of that same holy foolhardiness to attempt to be an artist, a lover, a true friend, an adopted child of God.
Anyway, this week is better. I have a little more breathing room.
P.S. Anyone else afraid for the end of the semester to be so close?
