Abstract

It's about living

It's about feeling incomplete

It's about nostalgia

It's about culture

It's about joy

It's about how life flashes before our lives

It's about sorrow

It's about what's hidden under the rug

It's about fitting in

It's about getting away

It's about a journey

It's about language

It's about class

It's about how something clean can leave a stain

It's about goodbyes

It's about fiction

It's about place

It's about blame

It's about obsession

It's about feeling stranded

It's about itching a scratch

It's about holding on

It's about being found

It's about how we all settle eventually

It's about desire

It's about conflict

It's about you

It's about me

It's about future

It's about community

It's about failure

It's about wondering which one of us is next

It's about the American dream

It's about right now

It's about the people we will become

It's about the search

It's about routine

It's about finding

It's about change

It's about living
