“All the years of paradise, paradigms, paralyze us. You’re crazy. All the cards you’ve organized, shuffled twice in front of my eyes, Everyone has needs, wants, a cold gun. Lights low, go on baby go. It’s a bad time, I’m on a tightrope.”
-Young The Giant, It’s About Time
This is the first single off Young The Giant’s new album that just came out on January 21. I’m not completely sure what this song’s about… a revolt, a rebellion? A metaphor for a relationship? Maybe all three. But whatever the meaning, I love the lyrics quoted above. Who can’t relate to that at some point (well, minus the gun). This song is a little more rock than their previous stuff, which is probably why I was drawn to it. It really shines when it breaks down at the chorus and then ramps up again… Enjoy!
