  • Lyrics
  • Over acoustic guitar and fuzzy synth bass, this song finds Mark Foster posing the question, "Is this the life you've been waiting for?"

    It was a query that was very much been playing on the frontman's mind after a whirlwind couple of years following the band's breakthrough. "When we stopped touring and I stopped charging forward, I was able to process everything," he explained to The Independent. "I was able to feel things. I just had a lot of questions… I was not at ease with myself, even though, in a sense, I was where I'd wanted to be after so many years of trying."
