“’Race To The Bottom’ is a song in which various types of people have a slice of the story, but nobody has the whole story,” says Mangan. “It’s about us grasping for a better or simpler time, but it never existed. Either we’re bummed that we missed out on it, or we’re anxious that we’ll miss the moment when it does come. I’ve always been fascinated by nostalgia. I think it’s dangerous. Putting a halo on the past takes you out of the present, and it’s just not realistic. It’s fantasy.”
