about

This song is about your internal dialogue telling you that you’re crazy and asking yourself why do the people in your life bother to put up with you?

Basically, it's us realizing that material things don’t equal happiness and getting fucked up all the time and self-medicating won’t make you happy either.

It's about learning to be yourself and accepting that the people in your life can love you in spite of your craziness

We really love the more laid back feel of this song and the addition of the offbeat drum fills. We had a blast writing this song and hope it shows.

lyrics

Waking up alone in this giant fucking bed
Wishing to god that I was already dead
Don't you feel? Oh yeah, I feel it!
I'm finally starting to feel something
Don't you feel? Oh yeah, I feel it!
I'm finally starting to feel something

Walking down the street with my eyes on the prize
Looking to score and I won't be denied
Oh, when I get it... Oh, once I get it...
I finally scratch the itch that's been killing me
Oh, when I get it... Oh, once I get it...
I finally scratch the itch that's been killing me

My head is stuck in the clouds
My heart is pounding through my chest
I swear I'm doing in my best
Why bother? Why do you bother?
Why bother? Why do you bother?

My head is stuck in the clouds
My heart is pounding through my chest
I swear I'm doing in my best
Why bother? Why do you bother?
Why bother? Why do you bother?
Why bother? Why do you bother?
