It's about the law of unintended consequences. A father turns his child away from a career in music to protect her, only to regret it forever. The world, in 1914, immersed itself in carnage that would last generations. The law of unintended consequences at work again, as its antagonists intended exactly the opposite. It is the second track on Beautiful Accident and so takes its rightful chronological place in the story of the century. Probably the most jazz influenced of all the cuts on "Accident", its quality owes much to the interplay of Nick DiFrisco's brushes, Bill Foster's arpeggiated bass, and Ian McDonald's haunting flute which is reminiscent of early King Crimson.
