ABOUT THE SINGLE:
Two things. skinsNbones songs rarely have 1 storyline.
1. skinsNbones feel strongly about reducing stigma associated to mental dis-ease, or what Bones the lyricist calls “mental difference” and asks: “What would the world be like without mental difference?”
Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Beethoven, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, we could go “Forever On”, all had mental dis-ease/difference. Without them thinking and seeing the world so differently where would we be? No E=mc^2! No understanding of electrical energy that we're now only just using! and the art! Where would we be without such beauty?! Such inspiration! The world's greatest minds had mental dis-ease/difference which is why they thought DIFFERENTLY, in ways others couldn't even dream. The world would be very bland and backwards without mental dis-ease/difference. Plus, mental dis-ease/difference is linked to higher IQ and also helps develops a higher EQ, an ability to empathise & care. So, “What would the world be like without mental difference?” Without seeing “new views” from being “around the bend”? This song is an Ode to Mental Difference, to help change perception, to learn it has all-ways added beauty and greatness to the world, been a huge part of the progression of the world. Learning about, and embracing your difference, makes a difference.
2. Keeping it short, the 2nd story is finding the inner light within Self, or from a higher Source, from tough experiences and using them to become more enlightened, a better person, fully accepting that mis-takes will be made, “wrongs”, that will be used to grow and not to put one’s Self down but help lift them up. Use “the rocks that tripped (you) up” as stepping stones for others. Use all ways to learn, grow and burn brighter and brighter in Spirit “Forever On”. skinsNbones promotes how beneficial Self growth is, especially from hard times. That becoming a better being, not a bitter being, is healthy for not just your Self but also the world around you.
