Songfacts®:

  • Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) (from The View Are On Fire): "It's about just sorta sitting having a good time. I'll be at the bottom having fun, you might make it to the top. It's just don't waste your time, pretty much. It's a good thing to write about."
  • Kieren Webster (vocals/bass) originally wrote this as a slow song on acoustic guitar. He and Falconer scrapped the instrumentation and just kept the lyric.
