In “Searchlights,” Rorie sings about being on the lookout for a future partner, and in “The Weather” she alludes to disquieting aspects of life in New York City and keeping a steady job for the paycheck and security it provides while being numb to the passion that is lurking within and wants to be expressed.
“If You Teach a Bird to Sing” involves an innovative use of metaphors to convey the notion that the pathway to full self-expression is through the development of skills that can be acquired to be liberated from suppression and subservience.
“Coyote” was inspired by a short story by renowned urban fantasy author, Charles de Lint, and is a reminder that no label can alter your true essence or rob you of your power.
In “Don’t Give In,” Rorie shines a light on societal forces that sometimes unwittingly create social pressure to influence behavior to the detriment of those being influenced, and “Eyes of Gray” is a reminder that we can be our best friend and summon the fortitude to overcome any challenge we face.
As mentioned during the 2nd Show, “I Got This” echoes the sentiment expressed in the statement often attributed to Gandhi, “be the change you wish to see,” and if you watch the 2nd Show you’ll discover the longer more insightful quote from which that statement emanates.
