First up - great review
The second is that I have NO IDEA what the lyrics "Only a stone from King's Canyon..." mean and Chris sings it over and over again on track 4. For me, it makes it really hard to relate to the song. If you get a chance to do an interview with these guys, please ask the inspiration behind that line and don't let them give you a Jason Vena answer of "the lyrics are what you make of them."
The meaning of that song as I see it is that the character is only a stone from King's Canyon - one stone among many stones. Like feeling like a drop in the ocean.
"Only a stone, so I make my way my own."
"Only a stone, I will make my way my own."
"Just a stone, who could notice, here in the bones and the locusts, just a stone."
The "tell me who will ever know" bit doesn't make sense with that meaning, but yeah.
