Songfacts®:

  • This pop-punk track finds singer and bassist Mark Hoppus begging for some peace from the thoughts that occupy his mind and keep him awake at night.

    I won't fall down that f---ing rabbit hole
    I'm barely standing on the ground
    All the hints that you leave are too hard to believe at all
    I won't fall down that f---ing rabbit hole


    Producer John Feldmann told Fuse: "Mark and I were talking about depression and negative thinking, how one thought can spiral into thousands of thoughts of 'What's the point of anything?' and 'F--k it all.' As an adult, to go backwards and ask, 'What was that first thought that caused me to go through this spiral of nothingness?' The idea of the song is 'I'm not going to go down this rabbit hole of negative thinking.' That's where the song started. Where it ended [feels] more playful, the logo, and we're talking about the O.G. skankin' rabbit legacy."
