Who Wrote Holden Caulfield song meaning

"Its a song about forgetting what you're going to say...It's trying to get motivated to do something because your elders tell you, you have to get motivated. So then you get frustrated and you think that you should do something but you end up doing nothing. But then you enjoy it." - Armstrong.

Holden Caulfield is a character from a J. D. Salinger book Catcher in the Rye, which served as aninspiration for this song.

In this song the narrator is trying to recall what he was going to say, but realizes that he can't remember what it was. And just like his lazy mind, he himself can't get motivated and is becoming more and more idle and frustrated. He wants to do something big and meaningful, "make a stand" - but he doesn't have enough will or strength to fulfill that desire, and so he ends up almost forgetting what it was that he wanted to do.

As the author mentioned, the reason of the frustration might be the obligation to do what your parents tell you to - first you have no motivation for doing what they want you to do and you want to rebel, but then you realize that you have no motivation for rebelling either and you just might "end up quitting". As a result, you're doing nothing and drowning in your own apathy.
