I wrote this track for an online scholarship contest for a business class thing. Writing a song for the submission was my own idea. We were asked to answer: 'Who are you,' 'What do you do,' and 'Why do you do what you do.' The submission had to be under 90 seconds. Most of my songs are about twice that length, but I accepted the challenge.
*I used to call this website the Lightning Lucas Music Train. But I've shortened it to the easier to say, remember and google: LightningLucas.com
**I don't really believe that just because I survived being struck by lightning I therefore must have a purpose. What I believe is much more nuanced than that, and I'm not going to put words to it here. I couldn't fit it in the 90 seconds.
