Album: Stomping Ground (2000)

  • Lyrics
  • This song filled the need for a "fast, jumpy pop songs" as lead singer John Feldmann puts it, who apparently wrote the song in 6 minutes. This is a song about his anxiety as his wife was about to move in with him and not being sure what's going to happen. The band almost always plays this song second in their live sets and as they put it: "This is probably going to be the second song forever." >>
