About "Watching the tide"

The idea of this was to combine Otis Redding’s Sitting on the Dock of Bay with the perspective of a refugee (or of myself as a refugee) sitting in some port trying to flee to a better life. Though not all lines are perfect I’m quite happy with how this turned out and it ties the record nicely together thematically and musically. The strings and tubular bells are from Garritan’s Personal Orchestra.
