Pieces by Slow Sugar describes to us, the bits that need to be in place, in order to move forward, to move on. Then the song begs the question, “Does ALL the pieces need to be in place to fulfill that order”? If so, can that feeling of movement be satisfactory?
Simple questions, but certainly deep and wide.
Hard to say either way. For we’re such complicated creatures, with infinitely unsatisfactory emotions, will, and absolutions.
But songs are there for that purpose. And we listeners want and expect such daring.
We are fragile. We are breakable. We can and do tear into pieces. But those pieces can be put back together again-
maybe not to the original make-up, but something wholly different.
