On the surface, this is one of Brian’s “live healthy” songs, but it is also clearly autobiographical with the references to Brian crying “a million tears” and wasting “a lot of years.” The mentions of not being lazy and destroying rather creating also hint at salvation that Brian found through the creating process and taking in what life has to offer, rather than retreating from it. A jaunty and melodic arrangement add to track and make it one of the centrepieces of Brian’s journey through the ups and downs of Southern California.
