"The Wheel,” the first track on her upcoming album The Hope Six Demolition Project.

"The Wheel" is most likely based on past events in Kosovo, as it makes references to a poem she wrote in her book The Hollow of the Hand. As well as the fact that 28,000 international troops were sent to invade Kosovo in 1990. The song features a call-and-response lyric about the disappearance of 28,000 people “lost upon a revolving wheel… of metal chairs”.

A revolving wheel of metal chairs
Hung on chains, squealing
Four little children flying out
A blind man sings in Arabic

Hey little children don't…
