“We all as human beings are going through struggles on this beautiful blue ball,” says Roman. “Our differences don’t separate us as greatly as we think. We must remember to ‘lay down’ our aggressions toward so many things in the 21st-century. We must remember that we are all human beings, going through this life together…Not the struggles that the media keeps forcing down our throats, but in fact, in the hearts of minds, of every living thing on this planet.”
“Lay One Down” was written and recorded by Ed Roman at Area 51 studios in Ontario, Canada. The track was produced by Michael Jack, during Ed’s sessions for his upcoming 2016 album release, Red Omen.
