From Matt Mascarenas of Mansions:
I heard Mansions at the absolute right time. It was during a hung-over morning drive home from an [uneventful] party when the lines “I could go out every night or I could work that nine to five / Neither makes me more or less alive / I am more or less alive. At the time, all my efforts were spent in bands on tour and away from Salt Lake City as often as possible. When at home, I’d force myself through a miserable cycle to ensure that home wouldn’t become a comfortable place to be. School, work, relationships were to never take priority over traveling, basement shows, and credit card debt. That line - regardless of the context it was originally meant in - caused me to question my one-sided thought process. I needed to be able to consistently feel that whether I’m on tour or at home.
