A note from Lucas:
This record is for all the people that contributed towards keeping me alive long enough to create it. I will never fully be able to express the depths of my gratitude and the extent to which I have been humbled and changed by everything that I survived because of you.
May these songs carry you through your darkest days like they did for me.
