I respect the artistic direction, and I can see a lot of thoughts were put into the lyrics and meaning of the song. It's not really my style though. I don't like the... the drop? I'm not sure what it's called but for me it feels a bit noisy. The MV is beautifully filmed though, as expected for Stray Kids. They are really talented, but I kinda wish they can go back to District 9 style more? That was fire. Again, nothing bad about Stray Kids, just this title song isn't my taste. Maybe the b-sides will be good.

Well. I didn't like the song, but I get what they're going for. This is an artistic song meant to express a particular mood / feeling, rather than a straight-up pop hit. The theme of this song (relating uncertainty and doubt as similar to the bad side effects of drugs) is kinda bad timing with the ongoing scandals over at YG though, but that's not really Stray Kids' fault their comeback happen to overlap with these events. They did some interesting things with the music, sound and visual effects to simulate different altered states (paranoia, hallucinations, stress, hyperstimulation, etc.) so it was artistically quite intriguing. But I just didn't like the song. Though I did like the contrast with the peaceful calm music at the end.
