My story is one of permutations. Every so often I find myself with any different number of people or places or things, and I also find that at the end of the day, it's just me again. So, in creating this album I had this very lonely sense that most other people feel the same way. We all have felt the burden of existence at one point or another at some point in our lives, and this album shoulders that burden and attempts to reconcile it through stark honesty. I can say that I will forever be grateful to the people who inspired the lyrics to these songs. Though it wasn't always pretty, I am a stronger person because of the situations which I've gone through. All we need to do in this life is put our heads down and charge.
