  • Darwin Deez leader Darwin Smith explained to NME that this song "extols the virtues of slackerdom." He explained that in the year he took to compose Songs For Imaginative People he "also did some spectacular slacking off."

    Smith added that he wrote the song both for himself and his neighbor Breigh who with her husband did the layout for Songs For Imaginative People. He explained that "she was only working part-time at the time and feeling creatively stifled. Now she's full-time and fully stressed."
