In Their Words: “‘Everything’s Made Out of Sand’ was written to create a dialogue on the temporary nature of all things: one day everything here will to turn to dust. I was inspired in the writing process while struggling to feel like I was using my short time here wisely. Humans are connected by our perception of time and the understanding of our own mortality. Through this mutual connection that we share as neighbors, I feel that a certain amount of accountability exists between us to try and live our best life for each other. We captured this tune with the band belting and stomping into a single antique microphone. By recording the song in just one take, it is set aside from the rest of the album and meant to capture the idea behind the track itself in a sonic way: we have a short time to live the most impactful and fulfilling life we can, so let’s try our best.” – Collin Krauss, The Way Down Wanderers
