This prolific narrative song by Turm follows the stories of three people, experiencing different hardships in life and explores how they may be victims of circumstances.
Turm sums up everything by connecting these people through hook. The hook expresses the idea of being stagnant (a lack of progress, motion). This song is a metaphor that opens up interesting topics through characters who see life differently, according to how reality presents itself to them. Following the story of a woman who is a single parent, and a young man trapped in a cycle of drug use and criminal activity.
In this song Turm expresses a pain in having to watch people around his neighbourhood get caught in a vicious cycle and that for him sparks the hunger for a better future.
