“‘Sanctified’ is a personal, poetic exploration into my mind when riddled with a conflict in ideology denoting the paradoxes in self as a mirror reflecting the paradoxes of people. I let the pen bleed over Elijah Bane’s mellow though intensifying instrumentation with a heart to ease existential quarrel within; therapy.”
