Synopsis: An introduction to Orville Wyatt (John's mentor) - Orville is somewhat of a wise man, he's one of the few citizens that has no fear of sticking out from the crowd. He acts as caregiver to John while his parents are out, stiving to teach John the basic yet ignored lesson that money isn't always the key to success. Warns him to stay on track, drawing comparisons to people of the city as "swallows" (small birds picking up what little seeds they can from the top of the chain.)

lyrics

We've got a lot of trouble, lot of trouble from those who can't turn back
Yes, a lot of trouble, from those who lost the track, lost the track

Time don't decide the fate of the swallows
But rather shortening up their pace to save wallows face here

Memorizing page for page can't follow
Fair, virtuous success, no only sorrow (and fear)

We've got a lot of trouble, a lot of trouble from those who can't turn back
Oh yes, a lot of trouble from those who lost the track
Ahh, a lot of trouble from those who can't turn back
