  • Lyrics
  • This song unexpectedly references Fred Flintstone. "That song gets at one of the points which, for me, was very important," Matisyahu explained to Billboard magazine. "For awhile everything was about this perfection I was striving for as a person and as a spiritual being and as a musician and an artist. But part of getting older and continuing to do this is acceptance of others and myself around me and celebrating the brokenness of it all. Somehow Fred Flintstone, with his feet going through the bottom of the car, was an image that popped into my head."
