This song was written about a dream I had involving a plane crash in the Detroit River. The first two verses were written right away. The final verse was written months later after a good friend sent me a text message about the Snowbirds flying overhead.
In the dream the Snowbirds caused a jet wake that plunged a jetliner into the river. All lyrics are as the dream happened, but the dream got too crazy to continue writing the lyrics and still have it seem real. Thus, the final verse is inspired, not dreamt.
