This is a cool song about a perspective of life we all frequenty need to tend to, that of just living it and care to neglect the detaisl surrounding us, makin things more and more grey....On the other hand I reckon this song is one of those, the a group releases after their breakthrough, criticizing themselves before anyone else, judging what success may have done to them....
Now who on earth can forgot the tone deaf acoustic guitar riff, in the first minute of the extended version of the song? IF you were born 1995 you certainly don't count. Now this massive hit, it's about a guy who apparently "rocks the mirophone" and is a "freestyler" !
