Vocalist and guitarist Drew Pinto stated: “The song takes the listener on a tour of our different musical inspirations; it includes bits and pieces of genres we love, like punk, prog metal, post-hardcore, rock, and even ambient. I always try to imbue a story into the lyrics that I write, and this was no exception – this song is a story about a man’s decision to explore the ocean, having no desire to continue his boring, day-to-day life onshore. For me, this song narrates a metaphor for how we as people often bite off more than we can chew.”
