"Lyrically, it’s about addiction," shared bandleader Richard Jankovich, "The desire to get as far as you can be from this world even if you’re in a room surrounded by people." Jankovich continued, "I chased rocket ships - now, I stay grounded and find fulfillment in the here and now."
The musical arrangement was originally a demo for Aloe Blacc whom Jankovich befriended when their daughters bonded at school. Aloe suggested they write together and this was an early attempt. "We made a different song but I saved this, it felt like it had potential", says Jankovich.
