The lyrics tell a tale of hope at the highest levels.
“The Absence of Angels” is a love note of sorts to our country. I wrote it with my friend Daniel Neihoff in April of 2020. I get worried that we can’t talk with each other anymore, and that when we try, it ends up in a lot of yelling. The song is a reflection on where we’ve been, and hopes for the future. — Scott Martin
