  • Lyrics: I've been dating myself. I'm up to my neck in ceremony. I've been searching myself, but I don't know how to look into my eyes. What will I find? with the curtains drawn and no light left inside. I've been taking my time, hoping to find a line. But there's no more time. I will break out of this place. I will give myself a taste. I'll climb back on this self-destructive track. I will rise up from my tomb. And I’ll undress every wound. I'll take the chance that you might send me back, please don't do that. I've been fooling myself. I could close the door and you won't find me. I constructed my cell. I let no one in and no one could get out. What's it about? Maybe it is time to let the daylight in. I denied myself. Tried to stay safe and warm. But I can't be alone anymore. I will break out of this place. I will give myself a taste. I'll climb back on this self-destructive track. I will rise up from my tomb. And I’ll undress every wound. I'll take the chance that you might send me back, please don't do that. I remember the day she left, swore I'd never let another do me like that. Maybe I’ve lost my mind, but I think I'll take my chance with you. I will break out of this place. I will give myself a taste. I'll climb back on this self-destructive track. I will rise up from my tomb. And I’ll undress every wound. I'll take the chance that you might send me back, please don't do that.

Upon the release of his 2009 debut Postscript, critics clearly agreed, comparing its jolts of gritty, melodic Americana to the likes of Pete Yorn, Michael Penn, and Elvis Costello.
