about

In the ER beds, we dream of days devoid
Of iniquity and fate.

For Latamara, who left us too soon, I wish you were here to see this; and to Wayne, Mr. President, I don't expect you to be around for this either. You are both in my thoughts every day.

This album is dedicated to my wife, my muse, my Victoria. Without you, this never would have happened. Words are inadequate to describe my love for you.

To the old pals, our days of drinking and debauchery may have come to an end, but time has not tarnished my love for you and the times we had. I know, to this day, any of you would help me in a time of need. Know that I will do the same for you.

To my family, I hope that nothing in this album causes you offense. I was in a dark time with dark thoughts: nobody likes you when you're 23. Thank you all for being there for me any time I was weak and afraid. I love you all.

To my coworkers, I want to emphasize that I Want a Real Job is in no way a reflection of my feelings toward any of you; I wrote it long before I knew you guys. You're all cool dudes, and you make the 9-5 or whatever we do bearable. Thank you for coming to my shows and supporting me.

Special thanks to Joe Bryant and the i'm fine, thanks! team for supporting me through this release and believing in me. You guys are the best. I fully believe and support what you guys are doing as well.

Another special thanks to Liz McCollum, who created the wonderful art that decorates this album. You get it. I look forward to repaying you in whatever way I can.
