“This is by far the most liberating song I’ve ever written! It’s a big fuck you anthem to anxiety! Like many others, I’ve been struggling with it for a long time… hopefully, this can lift people’s spirit and I hope people will connect with it and scream out the lyrics!! I really want it to reach as many as possible and help create a big “fuck you” wave towards anxiety!! I know it won’t solve any deep issues people might have, but hopefully, it can make someone feel less lonely.” – Ruben Dawnson
