Intuneition is a state of consciousness reached during the creative process. All artists are writers. All writers are messengers. There is an intuitive aspect to life, whereby a being may divine truth without prerequisite knowledge. The search for and procurement of knowledge is not just a foolish manmade quest, it is the instinctual function of consciousness. A mind is a receptor for truth, just like the chemical receptors in the brain. Intuneition refers to the act of speaking universal truth without prerequisite knowledge, arriving at conclusions for which no known path exists. It's as if there is a current of truth moving through all things, like radio waves, that can be tuned into in moments of reflection or seeking; a person who has escaped himself can be a vessel for a message that, perhaps, the Universe desires to deliver.
I find my work to be most instructive to myself. Many things I have written in this state are things I did not know beforehand, and did not realize or understand until afterward, if at all. Other artists have referred to this phenomenon as well, describing themselves as being possessed - as losing track of time, space, their surroundings and themselves, as the words, sounds, pictures, or movements pour from them from some higher source. I feel very fortunate to be a participant in these events and for me it underscores the importance of listening to those who feel compelled to speak - for the message they are delivering may not be their own, and it may be specifically for you to hear. There is plenty in this life that indicates we are lost and alone, without this intuitive connection to the system that created us. We are the fingers of God, the mirror through which all things may know themselves. Please, Listen and Share if it means something to you.

This record belongs to Zack Flower, the Awkward Gangster, who taught me everything a man should know about life, and an artist. I miss you so much man. I'm sorry we didn't speak for months before, and I'm so sorry I wasn't there. But I hope you can hear me - and I hope I can make you proud.
Thank you for everyone that was there for the things that these songs are about. You know who you are, and you are all so special - I can't believe I've been allowed to know you.
Thank you to the artists who donated their work to make these songs as well, knowing or unknowingly. I've done my best to give credit where it's due, if I missed anything let me know.
