This line, which captures the cabin fever many of us have experienced, was actually inspired by a TikTok user I follow. He performs duets where he does film acting and chose a 1950s romance movie theme. One of his lines was, “I don’t know what they’re called but the brief intervals between the seconds…I always think of you during those.”

Usually I would write down things heard from friends or strangers in public for inspiration, but I ended up taking this line and twisting it into the making of “Go O.U.T.”
