The Dear Hunter Story: Act I

This is the story from Act I of the Dear Hunter's three Act albums.

City Escape: Ms. Terri (the first revealed character) is escaping from the city (which is only ever referred to as The City) and is running from an unknown enemy. She goes through countless uncomfortable circumstances (bleeding feet, tearing of her skin, being clawed at her throat). This song sets the stage for the rest of the story as stated in the song. By the end of the song, she reaches the Delphi Express, which is taking her to The Lake and The River, the town south of The City.

The Inquiry of Ms. Terri: While on the train Ms. Terri reveals that she is pregnant and questions her decision to keep the baby and escape her job. It is stated that Ms. Terri is a prostitute and could not keep her baby if she decided to stay in The City (keep in mind the father is no where to be found). She foreshadows Act II ?My love, I'll carry you, And I'll teach you how to treat that Leading lady that you'll meet.? (The leading lady being Ms. Leading who comes later on.) The end of the song she gives birth to a son who?s name is not revealed.

1878: I personally think that this is the time period this story is set in. The boy has grown old enough to question his mothers past and wonder where they came from (in an attempt to discover what?s behind). This is the boy growing up and being raised in The Lake and The River by Ms. Terri.

The Pimp and The Priest: Here the antagonist of the first two acts is unmasked. The priest in The City works in the church during the day however, when night rolls around, he runs a brothel for men to ?suffocate stress? called ?The Dime?. Ms. Terri used to work for the Pimp and The Priest who does not allow his prostitutes to quit their work at the dime (I since remained hostage) and was forced to runaway (sing softly bring me to the lake).

His Hands Matched His Tongue: Back at The Lake and The River, Ms. Terri raises the boy to his teenage years. She has taught him everything except for her experiences back in The City, of which he seems curious. The boy seems to worry about his mother?s death ?oh, someday she?ll be gone? and that there is more to her story that he will never know.

The River North: This is the years passing for the boy and Ms. Terri between Acts I and II.
