"I was playing this song in my head at the bus stop (you know how it is :) ) and I 'overheard' these 2 old ladies talking about the usual (kids today etc.). It came to me that this song is about how a lot of people complain about the problems that affect them, and they don't give a shit about anyone else's problems. They expect everyone to listen to them but they won't go out of their way for someone else."
"This is (I think) a song about how many people, myself included admittedly, don't do anything about the world because everyone else has it covered. We just 'waste another day getting overweight and grey in the head' with everyday that passes by our passivity."
