John Mayer recently released a new album. Whether or not you like him as a musician or as a person is irrelevant. There is no denying the man is a genius with lyrics. I listen to his music when I’m working. I listen to his stories, I listen to his intonation, I listen to his lyrics.
The new album contains a song unlike any others he’s written called “Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967.” There is a line in it that inspired my latest piece. “The sky was a flare, when he came up for air.”
