I wrote this song during a time when I was feeling extremely isolated from everyone and stuck in my own head. I was't acting like myself or being very social because I was so caught up in writing music and dealing with my anxiety. I disconnected myself from so many people I cared about. I couldn't break out of my self-enforced detachment but didn't know how to ask for help.
It is about feeling helpless and unable to make changes. It could be seen as a personal feeling of stagnancy or a commentary on the flawed system in America that keeps everyone sort of stuck on a conveyor belt.
