      The only problem I have with this song is that it’s too slow. Otherwise great song 👍

            I feel like this song understands me on such a deep level. I feel the pain of being overwhelmed and trapped.

                I just listened to them at the Hollywood Bowl and when I heard 1:13 live for the first time I had goosebumps that never ended and teared up to a beautiful part of the music.

                            Some music enthusiasts suggested this track to me.

                            Not really sure why. Apparently it's about the vanity of defining people's "whiteness," leaving the indie rock scene to adapt to the times, a strained relationship, all three, or none of the above. I don't particularly care about racial definition or rifts, I'm not in a relationship, and I enjoy music from every genre, indie or otherwise, and I especially like cross genre experimental groups.

                            Unless you're Trans Siberian Orchestra.

                            Fuck Trans Siberian Orchestra. Fucking worst of all worlds, whitest band ever, albino pieces of shit.

                                                    Ok out there theory, but there are weird similarities between this song and the 2014 film force majeure. Probs just coincidence
