That's not to say Perkins doesn't regard himself as a man of the present — "I intend to make music that aims at truth and reality and not escaping from that." His distant, mythical wordplay grows out of the simplicity of daily life. "Anything is fair game, and anything can be worth the sacred space a song takes up. Where your head or heart's at can make a song float or sink."
