Songfacts®:

  • Here, Waterparks frontman Awsten Knight sings about his struggles with depression when touring:

    I go blonde when I'm sad
    Blew motivation I had
    To make my still-beating something
    Not hurt that bad


    The stereotypes of people with blonde hair having more fun is contrasted with the singer's sadness.
  • Knight told Kerrang: "Blonde is the fastest I've got to sing - I love singing fast, it's just fun because not everyone can do it. I can go really fast, even faster than in the song, I just didn't want to be annoying (laughs). But the vocal run is so sick! And there's programming in the pre chorus that you're gonna have to listen to on cool speakers to hear, and I love it so much."
