…And Still I Wander South

Album: A Different Shade of Blue (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Knocked Loose vocalist Bryan Garris opening up about himself and his innermost thoughts. He talks about being unable to escape both geographically his home state of Kentucky, and internally his negative thought patterns.

    I've spent so much of my life
    Trying to get out
    And still I wander south


    Garris explained to Kerrang the song is "about wanting to move on, or better yourself for whatever reason, but you keep going back to the same old thing. Whether that be depression or whatever you may be going through. You always wander back to the same mindset."
