In Their Words: "I wrote 'Hard on Things' with Winnipeg songwriter Rob Vaarmeyer, and we had a lot of fun doing it … which is funny because, on the surface of it, it's a bleak message, but it brings a lot of joy to those who recognize themselves in it — me included. To varying degrees, I think we all have these destructive impulses and patterns in our lives that we're trying to figure out. Songs are this very joyful, playful way of making friends with those truths. I mean, 'Hard on Things' is like a children's rhyme for grown-ups. Where else but in songs can ruination be so much fun?" — Corin Raymond
