Kamikaze

Album: What If Nothing (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Nick Petricca explained to Billboard how this track has two different meanings for him.

    "The two sides of that song that come up for me: one is being in love with someone and having to leave them behind, but on the other side there's this full ownership of self. Being all-in," he said. "And that belief in yourself and that belief in something greater than yourself as well is un-f--k-with-able."
