For many years Taylor Rice felt uncomfortable with the expectations of being a male; this song finds him examining his own sense of masculinity.Shy under the weight of design
Tame turning into the wild
I see but don't recognize
Afraid and able
However, by the end of the song Rice feels more at ease in his male skin.God, it's a perfect save
It took me thirty years and now I feel right
How did we get this way?
Rice explained in a Consequence of Sound track by track
: "I've never felt comfortable with many of the expectations put on boys at a young age. Those expectations are starting to change as culture more broadly starts to push back against a patriarchal establishment, and pushing for women to a claim a share of assertiveness and power."
