About “Ready To Die”:
“”Ready To Die” is a straightforward rocker about a spiritually broken individual who fantasizes about dying but is too noncommittal for suicide. It’s semiautobiographical in that it was written after my life had fallen apart and I was getting off drugs. Around this time scores of people were dying from Fentanyl overdoses and I found myself to be grief-stricken but also envious.” -Noah Adams
