Singer Justin Pierre explained the song's meaning: "The song is about procrastination and sort of the idea of 'Yeah, I'm gonna do it. I'm totally gonna do it. I'm just going to sit here and take a nap and think of all the things I'm actually going to do one day but never actually do,'" he said. "The Coma Kid, somebody who's just unable to actually do. Someone who's thinking of doing but not actually doing."
