This song finds a vulnerable Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker grappling with a stormy relationshipWe're on the borderline
Caught between the tides of pain and rapture
Possibly a sign
I'm gonna have the strangest night on Sunday
The relationship has bought to the surface feelings of self-doubt. Parker asks:Will I be known and loved?
Is there one that I trust?
Starting to sober up
Has it been long enough?
Parker told The New York Times
that he typically needs to feel down on himself before he's ready to come up with material for Tame Impala. "Part of the thing about me starting an album is that I have to feel kind of worthless again to want to make music. I started making music when I was a kid as a way of feeling better about myself," Parker said. "The ironic thing is, if I'm feeling on top of the world or feeling confident or like everything's good, I don't have the urge to make music."
