"Over the years, more than a few Christian artists and bands have devoted the occasional tune to what some might consider slightly offbeat subject matter. The members of the power pop trio, PFR, penned the wistful "Goldie's Last Day" for a faithful canine companion who passed away under what some considered slightly mysterious circumstances. The Newsboys' Top 5 1996 single, "Breakfast," was a similarly-themed ode to a departed member of a group of school-aged kids who convened each morning to share the first meal of the day. And Toby McKeehan and his fellow dc Talksters dedicated tracks on not one, but two of their records to the endearingly salty Mrs. Morgan, an elderly woman who continually reprimanded the group for the raucous volume levels emanating from their studio, which just happened to be situated in the house next door to her own.
While the abovementioned set only touches the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential songwriting themes, it's still a fairly safe bet that Josh Wilson is probably one of the first, if not the very first, artist to craft a composition around the unlikely subject of regular late-night panic attacks. As improbable as it sounds, though, that's exactly what the intrepid El Dorado, Arkansas, native has done on the title cut of his latest release. Indeed, while a fair portion of "Carry Me" is worded generally enough to ensure a certain universal appeal, lyrics like "I'm wide awake in the middle of the night/ Scared to death/ I try to catch my breath/ It hasn't happened yet" point specifically to the mysterious ailment which eventually brought Wilson to the local emergency room and forced him to cancel several shows on his current tour."
