Here's some context from Andrew of Dog Chocolate too!
"The song's about that moment of coming to, 4 hours after getting in from work and you've still got your shoes on, you're sitting in the dark, there's no food in the house, you've got a headache and you're expertly holding the decrepit power cable to the laptop in just the right position to keep yourself in that same situation for another 4 hours. It's about non-specific bad vibes intrinsically linked to the inanimate objects we've surrounded ourselves with.
The video shows one character played by 15 people. It's an attempt at a personification of a true unwordable bent wire situation."
