When it’s suggested to him that the track ‘You Don’t Tell Me What To Do’ sounds like an anthem for a rebel who’s not quite sure of his cause anymore, Kristofferson laughs, ‘Yeah! It is.’ However, he shrugs off the idea of the rebel in him having died with age or adult responsibilities. ‘Well, you’ll always be the same person you are. It just depends on what you’re a rebel about. I believe in the same things today that I believed in then, which is in freedom and equality and the business of creation. William Blake said: “Let others reason and compare. My business is to create,” and I feel that’s true.’

‘Castaway’ is an allegorical song in the tradition of haunting Kristofferson creations like ‘Darby‘s Castle’ and ‘Duvalier‘s Dream’. In this one, the narrator climbs aboard a fishing vessel and is struck with the eerie feeling that the lonely, rudderless craft is “the sister of my soul.”

‘The song was inspired by me just flying over this little thing and it stimulated something in my mind that turned into that song,’ says Kristofferson. ‘I never did find out what that boat was doing out there with nobody on it.’
