What does that song mean to you?
I talked to a lot of people who said that 2010 [the Year of the Tiger] was the worst year of their lives. I remember talking to a friend who was telling me in early 2010 that it was supposed to be really turbulent and traumatic. “The highs are supposed to be really high and the lows are supposed to be really low.” I thought, Okay, yeah, yeah, whatever — and it turned out to be possibly the worst year in life. So I was trying to make something productive and useful out of it, making it into a song.
