This is the only composition by Tore Johansen on the CD. It was recorded live in studio, while some instruments were added afterwards. At first I didn’t quite see the connection between this song and the Initiator. The song stops all the time and never gets going. I believed that the Initiator started things off and then they went on forever.
But then it struck me: That’s not what initiators do. When things stop, which they do all the time in real life, the initiator gets things going again and then he wanders off to other tasks. When he comes back, everything has stopped again, and he has to do it all over again.
This is exactly how the song goes. It starts and stops.
