Housing (in)

Album: Pedestrian Verse (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one half of a pair of songs, along with "Housing (out)." Frontman Scott Hutchison told The Skinny magazine: "I was trying to reflect the joys of being in a touring band. Getting to go home for one night, and just as you are settling, being ripped away from all comforts and thrown into the rammy again. I've learned to relish most of those minutes of home time for this reason."
