I guess I could have left the meaning of this song a little ambiguous and titled it something else, but I liked this title too much even though it stretches the meaning of "ballad" well beyond the breaking point. It's an unruly mess of a song, but Mr. Phelps has had an unruly life. For myself, I'm pleased I managed to pull it together into something song-like at all.
