Nostalgia can seem comforting, but I think it should be incredibly unsettling. I wrote the songs on "I Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow" around the idea that the best period in my generation’s lifespan was gone, but after a few nights on the road, looking people in the eye with that idea in mind, I saw how lazy I was being. It doesn’t feel good to be devoting so much time to counting the ways we’ve failed, and ignoring the hundreds of little ways I could be fixing this mess. Its time to stop drowning in nostalgia, and start finding ways to make our lives about repairing our broken systems. I think the first step is admitting that anyone's problem is all of our problem.
