The term 'cruise' is not the excursion of a nautical fashion, but one of the hunt for a sexual partner. Moving from body to body, the search for a bedmate may turn out to be a little frenzied and more than a little messy. After finishing the piece, I began to realize the commonalities between cruising and writing music: going through countless ideas, themes, or sounds and tossing them aside for better options. Who knows, maybe you'll pick up one of the old tricks another time.
