Well I think it all happened, when I was three years old
The running man showed me a step, that made me loose control
So I used it as a boy... and when I grew up...
I never thought this running motion would bring me such luck
So I skanked it in the morning and I skanked it in the night
It was then I decided that SKA would be my life
It cheered me up and it made me feel good
When it comes to skankin' I think that everyone should.
I recall this girl I knew, she always seemed so sad and blue
She never ever skanked this was and look at where she is today
She would say I was retarded and that would leave me brokenhearted
'Til I faced reality and I realized this girl was not for me!
So I skanked it in the mornin'... I skanked it in the night...
And when I was done I was feeling alright
You say I have to change, well what's with that?
You say to come inside but there's no welcome mat
Will this game we're always playin' ever end
But would you want it, if in the end we'd just be freinds
Lookin' through the mirror

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
