Just A Phase

Album: Morning View (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Brandon Boyd: "Documents how fickle the world can be and how the only certainty that exists is that everything eventually runs it's course. Keeping this in mind and trying not to get too cynical, it points out the blessing in disguise that is 'Temporaryism' and how it can be a door that swings both ways." >>
