“Stop It (Stripped)” is a somber, melancholic anthem and ode to the end of a relationship, whether it be a romantic companionship or friendship.

Then you reach towards the blackness and it lifts your body up, up, up, until you can practically touch the flickering lights! And then your fingers brush something in the blackness. You look at your hands and they are covered in grains and powders. An investigative flick of the tongue reveals sugar, cinnamon, and a bit of salt. Hmmm…. space is weird….
