Story Behind The Song:

Why did you chose to close the album with "Crumble Away?"

I had carried the idea for this song for a while. I heard a woman on the radio speak of a piano that was in her backyard as a piece of lawn art. I became fascinated with the idea of composing on a decomposing piano. The song was fleshed out towards the end of Kim's illness. The piano ended up on the porch.  It speaks of losing Kim incrementally as well as from Kim's perspective, of me not taking care of myself. Again, Larry beautifully set the lyrics to song. It seemed to be the natural end to the record.
