Background

In this article by Loudwire, Johnny 3 Tears talks about the track:

"It is about that precarious place we sometimes find ourselves, the brink between salvation and sanity and our desperate plea to ourselves that everything will be alright."

Official Lyrics

Johnny 3 Tears: Introspection, yeah
Is the mother of invention and not to mention, yeah
Here's your lesson, time to pay attention
I'm on one side, you're on the other
Everybody in the middle gonna suffer
I refuse to get too used to
Living a life that does not move you

Charlie Scene: I'm gonna be okay
I'm gonna be okay

Danny: When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless
I like to sit alone with my brain and provoke it
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless
I like to sit alone with my brain and provoke it
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay

J-Dog: They say I live in the slums
They say I live by the gun
I love the smoke as it's filling my lungs
I may be lost but I follow the drums
'Cause everybody's got something to say
They don't care if you're going the wrong way
Will I be saved if I preach or I pray?
If the smile ain't real, then I'll put on a fake

Charlie Scene: I'm gonna be okay
I'm gonna be okay

Danny: When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless
I like to sit alone with my brain and provoke it
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless
I like to sit alone with my brain and provoke it
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay

Charlie Scene: I'm gonna be okay
I'm gonna be okay
J-Dog: I'm gonna be okay
I'm gonna be okay
I'm gonna be o-fucking-kay

Danny: When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless
I like to sit alone with my brain and provoke it
Danny and J-Dog: I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
Danny: When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless
I like to sit alone with my brain and provoke it
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay

I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
(When the world's out of focus and looking kinda hopeless)
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
I'm gonna be o-o-okay
