First off, you may need to turn this up a good deal to acheive full quality from the recording. This EP was recorded by me on my iPhone voice memos, impromptu, stream-of-consciousness, on a late night in my apartment. The title refers to my never-ending quest to find a sense of flourishing within my life, and it tackles a lot of issues I've been wrestling with. Basically, it's about me wrestling my way out of depression, hence, "getting back" would be me finally getting out of it. Interpret the songs how you wish though, that's the point of music/writing/any art form. Although the songs are inherently personal, honest, and true in nature, they are not necessarily true to my own experience. The songs are for myself first and foremost, as well as anyone I've ever loved. Dayshun Jeter played all the instrumentals on a Casio keyboard, while I sang the words and came up with melodies. None of it was planned, written down, etc. so what's here is raw. You can hear the fan running in the apartment, turning off at times, there are accidental throat-clearings, shuffling of what sounds like paper (no clue what it is) etc. Hopefully some of these songs will be rearranged into what I truly want them to be one day.

I'd like to thank God, my Mom for being my Mom, Dayshun Jeter, and anyone whom I've ever loved. Again, thank you.
