Coast (It's Gonna Get Better)

Album: Soul Punk (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • During an interview with Broward Palm Beach New Times, Stump was asked what is the favorite lyric is on Soul Punk? He replied: "There's a lyric on a song called 'Coast' where I say 'Pointing out trivia nearly broke me with tragedy, so you need to put me back together.' It's kind of wordy and it's not really that poignant, but it's nice to have some kind of catharsis for once. I was being the voice for someone else's for a long time and I don't really get to say these kind of things, so that was nice. That's a lyric that sticks with me."
