Behind The Music – Memories

‘Memories’ is where we find the wanderer in a moment of clarity. The menacing voice was clear in his warning: “you will never leave this place,” definitely talking about the way the beautiful world the wanderer had found turned dark and dangerous after he was lured in far enough.
