Story Behind The Song = "Texan's Gun"

This week's Perennial was inspired by one of the best and most engaging books I (Jonny) have read over the past few years: Drew Magary's "The Postmortal." It's set in a not-too-distant future in which scientists have developed a "cure" for aging. The book explores the ensuing fallout.

Instead of trying to pack the whole book into a song, I zeroed in on a detail, one that I think is at the heart of the story as a whole. In this case, it's a gun given to the main character by a random Texan that he meets. It's a small part of the story but John wrestles with the gun and the responsibility it represents through the rest of the book, as his memories begin slipping away into infinite age.
