The band on “Gonna Lose Your Mind”;
“A lot of people have commented on this tune that they love the lyric “take me to the wall” which is actually “take me to the ward.” They thought it was about Trump. It kind of is. Whether it’s ward, wall, war, etc… it’s all tied into a feeling of having no control and anticipating madness. My favorite part is Overhand Sam’s hysterical laughter after the first chorus. I remember giving it a few takes in the studio while Sam was engineering and he was like “I think I know what you’re going for, can I try?” and he just nailed it first take. The craziness is legit. ”
