Here, Strokes lead vocalist Julian Casablancas reminisces on memories of his past; he calls out the '80s bands of his youth and remembers someone who wrongly thought he was his friend. Now he yearns for new relationships, which as a fortysomething father of two he finds difficult.
I want new friends, but they don't want me
They're making plans while I watch TV
On the bridge, Casablancas references his ex-wife, former Strokes assistant manager Juliet Joslin, whom he divorced in 2019 after 14 years of marriage.
The less that I know, the deeper I go
Juliet, I adore
The deeper I get, the less that I know
Diminishing returns, oh
The older he gets, the less Casablancas understands the younger generation.
