In Their Words: “The lyrics of this song have to do with that moment in the middle of the night where you’re briefly awake, but trying to bat conscious thoughts away in the hopes of getting back to sleep. In my case, these thoughts can usually be collected under the heading ‘What should I be worried about right now?’ Some of these concerns are real, some are imagined, and some are a combination of the two. I accidentally sang the wrong backing vocals on the second chorus and it’s one of my favorite parts of the whole record.” — James Elkington
