Album: Songs For Imaginative People (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the closing track of American indie band, Darwin Deez's sophomore album, Songs For Imaginative People. Darwin Deez leader Darwin Smith explained to NME that "an old friend who suddenly seemed like more inspired this song."

    He added that upping sticks and leaving New York for Asheville in his home state of North Carolina was the catalyst for Songs For Imaginative People. Subconsciously he "felt like a carpetbagger," he said "taking advantage of its "awesomeness, not needing a job outside of music, hanging with young adults and relaxing in the mountainous beauty."
