Blizzard's official lyric explanation


With that track, in particular, I wanted it to be almost bipolar, quite mercurial if you will. So, like, I wanted it to be like... go from one extreme to another just because... yeah, like, with an unsigned artist it is very hard to get money off this, you know, and I'm still struggling myself but I can make... I can see a positive from it, you know what I mean, because I've got no restrictions in my career, thus far, and I can just do what I want and enjoy it for that.

But, a lot of people - even people that are signed - they struggle to make a, like a good income from music. So they have to find, like, alternative mediums of work.
