This track explores the struggle of wanting to be in a relationship but failing to put yourself out there. Swimming pools act as a metaphor for relationships -pools are enticing, yet the prospect of jumping into one can be daunting. This song aims to offer understanding, comfort, and a sense of shared experience.

“Prototype” encapsulates the universal experience of meeting someone at a formative age, where that individual gradually embodies an elusive ideal against which all future relationships are measured. A soul crushing realization unfolds at the climax of the chorus: "you're the one that I compare everyone to, but I'm not that for you."
