This album is derived from a concept developed entirely around the song "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the musical Carousel and also used as a monologue by Jessica Lange in American Horror Story. It is meant to be an exploration into the times where life gets in the way of itself in the hopeful attempt to let those know that feel like they can't go on that there is always something on the other side of struggle to live for. Always.
