Lyrically, this song is about how people say they change, but in reality we’re all probably more static than we hope to be. We think we grow and change, but we’re still the same, messed up people in the end, hence the “Now, i’m guilty by association.” In the end you have this nostalgic picture of your childhood and the people in it, but it wasn’t the place you thought it was, and you can never really get “home.” Instrumentally, this track was inspired by various dreampop elements. The song crescendos following a slowly building structure.
