Stereo Stickman:
Marking the final moments is a song called While You Wait. The beat feels right at home now, the delicacy alongside of it is soothing. The simple intermittent strum of an acoustic instrument accompanies a gradually rising melody – delivered by a pair of beautifully interconnected voices – and as you witness it all unfolding, your mood is highly likely to follow the changing levels of intensity and passion provided within. It feels like you’re riding the waves – flying right up over the top, and then back down; ready to do it all again.

This last song is blissfully organic and captivating, the sort that you can escape entirely into – letting your mind wander somewhat but also being lightly guided by the ascending melody-line and the mesmerizing rhythm of the music. This is a definite highlight but it really makes the most sense as the final song of the collection. At just five tracks long this is an easy way to spend a half hour. Patrick Ames is no stranger to songwriting and this latest EP offers some of his most beautiful and interesting works to date".

While you wait
For your life to abate
do you ever wonder why
you were made to wait
Help Fix this world
Help Remove the hate
Ohhh, While you wait

While you age
don’t be afraid
one morning you’ll wake up
and you’ll not be awake
Fix this world
Remove the hate
That’s why you were made
You were made to wait
And Work while you wait

While you rest
on your climb to be famous
only to realize
you don’t have those kind of jets
Help Fix this world
Help Remove the hate
While you wait
