This is more straightforward than his other songs--which shows that the emotion alone is powerful enough to carry it through. Yet I can still see that unique imagery and irony in the lyrics that only Eric Stuart can do. The music is also well done, with parts slowly added verse by verse to emphasize the emotion.
With this song, I see that his struggle to be recognized for who he is applies to his life as well as his music. He had to forge his own path, and realize on his own that his differences are more important than his similarities.
