Also produced by MCCRD, this tends to be the most popular track on the album. I really like the way it flows together after the last track, which was the exact order they were in on MCCRD's stellar instrumental album, Listening for Hope When Looking Yields Nothing. I'm really blessed that he's let me use so many beats from that album over the years.

NOTES FOR PARENTS: This one and the one before it are both completely clean, plus there's a Barney sample in between the two, so definitely play those two back-to-back for all ages.
