I started listening to dumbfounded again. This man is pure genius... I have friends who are off to university, and I should be too, but for reasons I couldn't. I'm afraid to grow up and I always listened to his song "Peter Pan Complex" and because of this, I feel even motivated to continue on marching forward through my school work and be successful. Love dumbfounded. Thank you.

Parker idk if you read these man but I'm just becoming a man and this song really helped me to stop being a kid and grow up. It's still a learning process, but still Thanks man
