Today's Front Bottoms song of the day is brought to you by Serta. Just kidding, that was a terrible joke. But the song is titled Twin Size Mattress so I figured I should try to make a joke 'cause maybe then you'll listen to the song or something. You know what, forget it. Let me just get into it.
This song resonates with me because there's something about the lyrics that remind me of the times I used to play in a band (we were never that good but we had so much energy and no where to put it). After one of our first shows on a stage, we had a conversation by his van. And he said he was leaving for a while for personal reasons. And I just wanted to pull him out of it and keep doing what we were doing. I know the lyrics don't directly match up with what happened to me, but I'll think of him every time I hear this song.
This is for the lions living in the wiry broke down frames of my friends bodies. When the flood water comes, it ain't gonna be clear. It’s gonna look like mud. But I will help you swim. I will help you swim. I'm gonna help you swim.
