Y'know, I don't know, it just, it kinda sucks, y'know, having this story and not being sure whether or not to share it with other people or keep it all to myself. ''[{{beat}}]'' How's that car doing? She still running, even? ''[{{beat}}]'' I'm back in California. I haven't been able to save enough for a plain ticket, you know how much those things are. I miss you. I hope that's ok to say. Um. I have to work early in the morning, but if you get this, I'll be up for a couple hours, so gimme a call back. Tag, you're it.

Added DiffLines:

-> In the summer of 2016 we decided to take a little bit of money and go a long way to tell the story of a young couple on a road trip. The idea was to make a feature length film and then release the trailer for that film in the form of the music video "Sleep on the Floor".
