lead singer Kip Darby described this song to us as "A young man looking through the eyes of an older man and his addictions," adding, "The first line is, 'Old man, did you ever think of flying? You said the needle had led you to a fool.' Well, that's drug addiction. The same kind of thing, but at the same time, it's not really… But I don't want you to think it's heroin addiction. I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's not my
father, but I've got friends whose fathers have addictions, and they've seen their fathers who didn't do the right thing."
Confused? That might be the point. Darby says, "There's people who write and when they write, there it is, clear as a bell. We don't really do that. We kind of lay it out there to where you may take it and apply it to what you think."
