According to Hatchie on Stereogum, Quicksand” is about dealing with the realisation that you’ll never be satisfied. I started writing it when I was home between tours in 2019 before finishing it with Joe Agius and Dan Nigro the next year. I was feeling guilty and ungrateful for not being happy about a few different things in my life that were technically going well. I had to work through some tough learned thought processes and emotions that had been working away for years to try to understand how to be happy with my present, and stop fixating on my past and future. The video digs deeper into showing this juxtaposition of such sadness and anger despite being surrounded by glamour and grandeur.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I feel myself take it for granted
I know I should be happy here
Everything that I wished would happen
Is staring back at me crystal clear

[Pre-Chorus 1]
That’s when the pattern takes control
Playing the game over and over
Letting me know it’s never gonna let me go
I know

[Chorus]
If I had everything I wanted would I want more?
Would I keep fighting if there’s nothing left to fight for?
Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand, quicksand
I used to think that this was something I could die for
I hate admitting to myself that I was never sure
Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand, quicksand

[Verse 2]
One thing I never thought I’d be
Chasing my tail just for the feeling
Lying in bed, stare at the ceiling
And farewell the light, the dark is stealing

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It’s all I know and I’m taking it back, taking it back
It’s all I know and I’m taking it back, taking it back

[Chorus]
If I had everything I wanted would I want more?
Would I keep fighting if there’s nothing left to fight for?
Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand, quicksand
I used to think that this was something I could die for
I hate admitting to myself that I was never sure
Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand, quicksand

[Bridge]
I’m waiting, anticipating, breath bated
Thinking about everything I never did
I’m trying but what’s the use in trying
When all I’m left with is disillusionment

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It’s all I know and I’m taking it back, taking it back
It’s all I know and I’m taking it back, taking it back

[Chorus]
If I had everything I wanted would I want more?
Would I keep fighting if there’s nothing left to fight for?
Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand, quicksand
I used to think that this was something I could die for
I hate admitting to myself that I was never sure
Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand, quicksand
