Songfacts®:

  • Co-lead vocalist and songwriter Andrew Savage explained the song's meaning: "'Berlin Got Blurry' is a song about saying goodbye to someone from the other side of the world and about feeling completely foreign to your environment; knowing you can't go home, but not knowing where you belong."
  • The video shows Andrew Savage staggering around Berlin after a heavy night out in the German capital.
    Regarding the clip, he said, "I wrote the song in Berlin, so it made sense to try to recreate my experience for the video. It was shot on 16mm by the wonderful, talented and patient Claes Nordwall, who was able to take my very loose concept and make it into something really beautiful."
