Someday Soon

Album: Ozone Park (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • There's a fine line between laziness and patience. In this song, Hollis Brown frontman Mike Montali sings:

    Some will say I'm just lazy
    But I'm happy wasting time


    "This is an indie rock banger," he explained in a Songfacts track by track. "Playful riffs and simple structure with a bridge that breaks up the driving nature of the tune. The lyrics express the sentiment that even if things aren't great now, in the future they will be better. Keep working. Keep striving. Someday soon you will have everything you want."
