"I woke up 2 weeks ago, and decided
to write a song concerning the impending war with Iraq, from the perspective of one Irish citizen. My
reason is very simple. Ireland has no quarrel with Iraq, yet the Irish government is allowing US military
planes to refuel in Shannon airport, on their way to wage war in Iraq. The US is a great friend to Ireland,
but it is not always appropriate to do exactly as your friends do. And sometimes it is difficult, but necessary,
to say to your friends; 'I love you, but I don't support what you are doing now'. So I have written a very
personal, non-political song, simply to express how I feel in this current crisis in the world."
