This is the 3rd of 8 songs on my upcoming album, Galvanic Samurai. Though I love covering the Grateful Dead, in my songwriting, as did the Dead themselves, I go my own way. In this cut, though, there are lyrical references Deadheads may recognize which is why I thought it might be fun to share here. Titled Halcyon Days, the song's actually about fundamentalism. Fundamentalism may be defined as strict literalism regarding dogmas or ideologies. Fundamentalists emphasize purity and ingroup/outgroup distinctions while rejecting diversity (Wikipedia). But with kindness and acceptance come Halcyon Days. The electric sitar on the verses, BTW, is my nod to Tom Petty.
