Dawson’s signature raw honesty and visceral emotion can be found within those questioning lyrics, “why are you so unenthusiastic, huh? / Why you always gotta be so drastic?”, mimicking the internal voices of the narrator. The whole track bounces and reverberates with fuzzy guitars and paradoxically upbeat percussion, while the genuine sentiments of Dawnson’s feeling are further highlighted by the lo-fi production.
“This song, like the whole ep, is very introspective. it revolves around the feeling of not being in a healthy state. it switches back and forth between singing to myself in the third person, and from myself in the first person – which symbolizes a certain duality and disorientation. self-love and self-criticism.”
