got a sunset in my veins / and i need to take a pill to make this town feel okay & and i want i so bad / i'd shoot the sunshine into my veins / i can't remember the good old days -- thoughts?
these lyrics also i think are (thematically) linked to sunshine riptide and tbh the most interesting part of all of them is that all three instances are in relation to drug use, in some way? taking a pill, 'shooting' the sunshine in your veins (obvi drug reference), and in sunshine riptide 'the pills are kicking in'. I think that is Very interesting and sad that when the sun/sunset/sunshine is mentioned, its linked to happiness/good things/the illusion of happiness (bc sunshine riptide is kinda a song abt having a manic episode, i do believe). I think sunset being used in the first one is Super intriguing bc that, in my mind at least, is as if to say the sunshine (happiness) is fading from his veins so he needs to take a pill to make everything feel bright and sunny again
