In an effort to maybe get this thread back on the topic of TWY and TGG (10 days or less y'all), what do you guys think the 5 recurring themes (ghosts, devils, birds, bombs, and pills) are supposed to represent? I saw a post on the video for The Bastards that hypothesized that the devil represents Soupy's depression and it seems to fit with what lyrics we have so far. Any thoughts on the rest?

The only other one i could begin to make a guess towards is that "bombs" represent the end; essentially the pinnacle of everything going wrong.

Almost positive that the pills are anti-depressants.

I'm gonna guess that the ghosts represent feeling misguided and lost. "I spent this year as a ghost and I'm not sure where home is anymore."

No clue what birds could mean.

Yeah, man. It's simultaneously atmospheric and claustrophobic. I've been very uncomfortable this entire time, but in an oddly enjoyable way. The record apparently explores the concept of death, and I fully see that.

Could also be receiving bad news.

Yeah I think the entire album, along with the album art, does a good job depicting the overall theme. It's overwhelming in such an interesting way. Like, I'm telling myself, "You really shouldn't be enjoying this," but I totally am. And holy shit, as I was typing this, the beginning of "Miste" scared the living hell out of me.

I really like NFG but I can understand people not liking them. They're not *that* special, but I do think they do (or at least did) pop punk very well.

I'd imagine birds represent freedom or love or something like that.
