Decisions are made in a brief moment, but like the ripples from a stone thrown into a pond, a decision can affect our lives over time, in ways we can’t predict. Each moment of decision holds endless possibility.


Music and Lyrics by Alan Babbitt

In the early 1900’s
My grandparents lived in Russia
There was strife - a dangerous life -
Under a badass czar

Then there finally came a moment
A moment of decision
They said "We"re goin" to America
it"s only 5,000 miles away
If not for that moment
I wouldn't be here today

Now those moments of decision
Come with lasting effects
As our lives unfold in a linear way
As one thing leads to the next

But If you change your perspective
To an historical view
remove one link from the chain of events
And whatever comes after is new
Without all those moments
You'd be a different you.


Sometimes those moments
are subtle and small
They're of such a size - you don't realize
they've happened at all.
And they can come and go
without leaving a clue.
But when you look back
you can see the track
Leading to the current you.


So if you're facing tough decisions
And they're driving you nuts
Could be you're thinkin' when 1 door opens
another one shuts.

But if you go through that new door
And you let yourself see.
There'll be door after door after door after door
Of possibility
Each a moment of decision
That could set you free.
