In an interview with Coup de Main
, Tyler Joseph said that during this song he's addressing a younger version of himself and what he wishes he'd heard. In particular he's talking about maintaining hope and pushing through difficult times, and the difference between internal and external pressure.Nice to know my kind will be on my side
I don't believe the hype
And you know you're a terrible sight
But you'll be just fine
Just don't believe the hype
Tyler explained: "A lot of the things that I write about come from wrestling with an internal pressure, but there are those external pressures of the world around us that can be addressed as well, and that song particularly addresses those in a way that - Just an encouragement to keep going, to let things roll off your back that deserve to be put aside."
