This brooding alt-rock anthem is a song about disconnection and being on the fringe of change. Although it was written and recorded when the world was a completely different place, the lyrics are eerily on point for the COVID-19 era.You need to wake up
I can't have you disappear
Just like my parents' house
I've become a visitor
Co-lead vocalist and guitarist Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir explained to American Songwriter
that as everything you once knew disappears, you find yourself in the role of the visitor. "It's about how we all 'change rooms' in our lives," she said. "There's the part in the chorus about becoming a visitor at your parents' house, which is something that most of us, we have that transition. The overall feeling of the song is just this new role that you have to kind of come to terms with it, but also just this disconnection that you feel to people or circumstances; this isolation."
