a note about this track

After breaking up with his girlfriend, moving out of his house, and joining a 12-step program for addiction, Alex Ebert began work on a story about a messianic figure named Edward Sharpe. According to Ebert, Sharpe "was sent down to Earth to kinda heal and save mankind...but he kept getting distracted by girls and falling in love."
