Was watching Waking Life then I logged on Twitter and I saw man talking
People bad minding stuff and I swear it bugged me ’til the following morning

Blizzard - Testing the Water lyrics meaning


Blizzard's official lyric explanation

So, with Waking Life that's like one of my favourite films and it's like a film where somebody talks about all... talks to all the elders of the universe and speaks to, like, major psychologists, major philosophers and it's all a bit of a lucid dream, you know.

I feel like my career's almost a lucid dream because it's pretty surreal that I can control every single aspect of it. But, I think that track was more a reference to just being awake at stupid times and just getting wound up at how people were talking about me.

I remember one exact moment I was with my girlfriend at the time where we was watching Waking Life at, like, 3 o'clock in the morning and I was just getting wound up just because I'd seen loads of hate from my Mark Grist battle, just piling up on my Twitter.

So, I just, like, threw my phone to the other side of the room and just, like, was in a bit of a mood and went to sleep on a bad note. I remember waking up and it was still, like, playing on my mind because it appeared in my dream.

So, that lyric always stayed true to me because I wrote it down on a piece of paper so I remembered that exact mind state I was in.
