“That’s where ‘Desperate Man’ kind of came from,” he continues. “I wrote that in the studio. I got a little bit desperate in there to just find an album, because it was not fucking happening.”
About the Song
The song is about a man who tried all he can in life, but despite everything, it seems that nothing is working out. However, the narrator of the song is a positive man and he will do anything and not give up. He seems to have hope despite someone told him that he is only going to fail. This song has a deeper meaning when you listen to it. It gives a glimmer of hope as the character doesn’t want to give up in whatever he is going through. It gives people a good lesson in life, which is to keep moving forward.
