In Their Words: "Those first lines of 'Patient, Patient Man' kept rumbling around in my head on a trail run. I'd been kicking around some religious themes in my songs around that time, and was considering the idea of how a person can seem like a hopeless case to many faith-based people, and a prime candidate for forgiveness (and ultimately saving) to others. In the eye of the beholder, I guess. I took the narrative on first-person, and the melody unraveled from there. When I got home from the run, I recorded it in the middle bathroom of our house." -- Will Johnson
