« The album starts and ends with the beauty of the album's dedicated, book-ending the murkiness and darkness in my mind and my continuing realisation of this. The track "A Wish For Common Silence" was written back in 2013 and little did I know how much of a sense it would mean in 2014/2015 and therefore a self-fulfilling prophecy, a full circle towards "A Wish For Common Silence" in both a metaphorical and literal sense. ».
