Soon Enough

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of several tracks on Charmer inspired by watching trashy TV shows. "'Soon Enough,' is about an intervention," explained Mann. "Everybody's reading their letters and everybody's crying, while once again, the target of the intervention is like 'F--k all y'all.' It's so classic. So the narrator of the song is like, 'Yeah, I know, we're all a bunch of a--holes—we're all against you. Just sit and listen to the letters, and soon enough you can say what a bunch of jerks we are. We get it.'"
  • Mann wrote this song with US comic actor/musician Tim Heidecker of Tim & Eric fame, who also directed a video for the tune.
