about

Co-Written with Ball Park Music’s lead man Sam Cromack and sees Maclean exploring his huge vocal range and trademark lyrical witticism paired up with thrashing indie-pop production.

It about doin' drugs and stuff.

lyrics

I look myself in the eye and wonder when,
I look myself in the eye and wonder when
Am I getting it together, lord it’s been forever since it felt right.

I look myself in the eye and wonder when,
I called my mother, my father and a friend,
Cause they got it all together, lord it’s been forever since it felt right.

We want hugs not drugs or both if it’s available,
I’ll take two and you under the table,
And forget the rest yeah.

I looked myself in the eye and wonder when,
I look myself up online and I pretend,
That my thoughts are pretty clever, photos looking better in red light.

Pre-meditated debated bitter ends.
I get distracted and start it all again,
Am I getting it together, lord it’s been forever since I felt right.

We want hugs not drugs or both if it’s available,
I’ll take two and you under the table,
Let’s both get drunk and forget the rest yeah.

We want hugs not drugs or both if it’s available,
I’ll take two and you under the table,
Let’s both get drunk and text all of our exes.

These hugs and drugs don’t make it better.

Down, I really got my shit down!
I really got my shit down!
I really got my shit down, down, down!

I went down!
I really got my shit down!
I really got my shit down, down, down!

We want hugs not drugs or both if it’s available,
I’ll take two and you under the table,
Let’s both get drunk and forget the rest yeah.

We want hugs not drugs or both if it’s available,
I’ll take two and you under the table,
Let’s both get drunk and text all of our exes.
