lifeblood: songs: background: measure of me

amy ray quote from 1999-10-01: indigo girl, the duke chronicle:

can you explain the title of your new album, come on now social? it was somewhat obscure to me...

"that's because we don't really know what it means! we got it out of a song that i wrote that's not on the record."

what song is that?

"a song called 'measure of me.' we're not really sure what it means because it's supposed to evoke this idea of finding your place in the world and asking the world to accept you in that place. so there's a little bit of activism involved in it but there's also a little bit of society-there's really completely opposite meanings in it. that's why we can't really explain it. we want people to take what they want from it."
