TAIHOA (Dub-Mix) is track 10 and was originally written in response to a substance use campaign but the song itself is open to interpretation.
The overt message is for parents to think about the consequences of over indulgence with drugs and alcohol - the impact it has on our children and families and how this has affected our relationships and health.
No one is perfect but everything we do effects how our children see themselves and the narrative they carry into adulthood.
So TAIHOA, WAIT and THINK!
Taihoa could also be applied to taking it slow in relationships too.
