“25, does this mean I’m a man? / 25, living my quarter life crisis”
The artist highlights the anxiety and uncertainty commonly experienced by those going through a quarter life crisis. Erik’s track is a sort of tribute to these people and he reminds them that all your need is courage to survive, coming out stronger on the other side.
“You look at this as career / I”m looking at this as life / 25 years baby / What I see with my eyes / I’m tryna look for a spark / To connect with your soul / Ask your family, you’re valued even more than their gold”
Erik sure knows how to keep his listeners reeled in with his intricate lyricism and flow. Moreover, his verses stand out and are accompanied well by the simple yet effective instrumentation on this one; a masterful composition and a solid mix!
