  • The lead single from Another Eternity, vocalist Megan James described the lyrical content to MTV News as a "sort of stream of consciousness." She added: "It was a time when I was moving from one side of Canada, the east side, and driving in four days all the way to Edmonton. It was kind of a big deal for me to move then, so I think it's a lot about linear emotions and driving through landscapes and relating that to an experience where I felt like I was… I was trying to put myself… be where I was, that turned into existing in that traverse."

    "The song travels a lot I think. But at the same I still don't really know what it's about."
  • The song's music video was crafted by Purity Ring in collaboration with photographer and videographer Renata Raksha. We see Megan James spinning and floating throughout the clip as if she's underwater. Asked where the treatment came from by MTV News, she replied: "I don't know where it came from but, like, there was haste to do it, so it had to be a simple concept. Sort of like those videos where the artist is, like, there's often one shot focused on them singing and minimal. We knew it had to be that because we were trying to do it in a short period of time, but we also tried to bring in really simple elements that would create a more intriguing or interesting appeal."

    "And yeah, the movement, we wanted something that would move and also bring an underwater element," James added. "Everything we do has kind of an otherworldly tinge, we're trying to create another, a different place to exist. It was an attempt to make it appear like I wasn't actually on the ground."
