As a young feminist, she left Texas to travel, Kerouac-style, and was caught up in Reagan-era grassroots politics. Released in England as ‘The Texas Campfire Tapes’ without Shocked’s authority, its success abroad enticed Mercury Records to offer the newcomer a recording contract.

The meaning is pretty obvious; she mailed a letter to an old friend in Texas but found out she'd moved to Alaska. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'.
