This record documents almost seven months of me climbing out of a hole that I dug for myself.
A glimpse into the thoughts and honest emotions found in their struggle.
It's not all of them by a long shot but every one is true.
part exercise in creativity.
Part killing "Uncle Buzzy" & part finding me again.
These 10 songs are done, I am not.
