Shelter

Songfacts®:

  • When Green Vinyl Dream were formed in the 1990s, they looked like a band to watch, but sadly this is about as good as it ever got for them. Running to 4 minutes 4 seconds, this uptempo group composition is the first track on their 2003 Babylon album. It was also used on the soundtrack of the 2006 film Big Bad Wolf, for which it is fairly thematic. >>

  • With no shelter for protection, the skies can come down upon you. This song touches on themes of survival and insanity, with a storyline about running away, but being unable to escape all that noise inside your head.
