half•alive’s official music video for What’s Wrong
Theres a lot of pressure with this being our first new release since Now, Not Yet. People often make up their minds pretty quickly about an artist’s sophomore release solely based off the first single, so it feels like the stakes are higher now & the song’s message has to be that much clearer. 2020 was a big break for us, being home all year, we were thankful for a breath to think, reflect & process, as many had that year. In the midst of that reflection, we wrote this song with the production duo @OjiVolta . After searching for “the perfect song” for so long, this one finally felt like it was it. Not because it was perfect, but because it was honest. It felt like it confronted the stack of problems that is piling up faster than the stack of solutions. Over the last year that pile was overwhelming & debilitating because the problem in front of me always feels like a drop in the ocean. “Times right to fix what’s wrong” means that I have ability to transform my immediate & eventually global environment by looking inward first. Looking in the mirror & realizing the inward journey is likely where real change is going to begin. -josh

time is always right in past tense
avoiding is my newest obsession
started with the right intentions
but left ‘em on the shelf
so tell me how to live in tension
‘cause every could’ve been kills when
living here has been hell
& i can’t hold it myself
the whisper in my heart - it could never speak up
the message in my chest gathered too much dust
i can’t afford the truth even if it’s unjust
keep it top shelf, keep it all locked up
so yippee ki-yay it’s not my blood
but every single day it calls my bluff
it’s not ok then it ain't quite done
then it ain’t quite done
the time’s always right to fix what’s wrong
looking through a haze i'm basing
everything around me on traces
the criminal i’ve been chasing
is wearing my shoes
the whisper in my heart - it could never speak up
the message in my chest gathered too much dust
i can’t afford the truth even if it’s unjust
keep it top shelf, keep it all locked up
so yippee ki-yay it’s not my blood
but every single day it calls my bluff
it’s not ok then it ain't quite done
then it ain’t quite done
oh my God it ain't quite
why hold on, it ain't quite
love, hold on it ain't quite done
the time’s always right to fix what’s wrong

  • I can't stand the trendy 'lisp' singing flooding pop songs in the past few years. Such an unnatural way to pronounce "past tense" 0:13 and "obsession" 0:17. Just finish pronouncing your words and stop drifting off half way through, it's like a new wave of vocal fry or something

  • Does this remind anyone else of their "The Fall" music video? Both music videos begin and end at a bed, and both involve the lead singer (Josh) putting on jackets (a tuxedo jacket here, and a fish jacket in "The Fall"). In both, the lead singer is walking through a building. In both, there are flashing lights at around the 2:10 mark. At the end of both, Josh has lost his jacket. This might be a coincidence, or maybe it is because "The Fall" was their first ever video, and this one is their "first new release since Now, Not Yet" (according to the description). Comparing the two videos is interesting.

  • As someone who has been struggling with depression and anxiety for a very long time now, I want to say, thank you! Your music has helped me a lot in dark times and especially "still feel." and "arrow" have been holding a spot in my heart. "Still feel." lyrics always felt made for me in a sense that it gave me something to relate to and also has given me the courage to work on what I have been struggling with for so long. "Whats wrong" hits the same spot for me as arrow and still feel. Keep it up guys youre all amazing

  • The final choreography with the 3 of them is the final struggle that sets the spirits of the mind in alignment with the King. He was a puppet while the spirits watched him. He then wrestles one spirit before wrestling both spirits and untying the strings that had controlled him.

  • bruh the dance he does at the end is the opening dance in reverse. like he’s going back in the past to fix what’s wrong... while saying time’s always right to fix what’s wrong. these are also the same lyrics opening up the song, like a loop. also, interesting how with all this the first verse is “time is always right in past”.
