On this release, Zack comments:
“White Bucket is a song about the need to feel like you belong somewhere, specifically in the context of your family. I was raised in a very conservative working class American family and our identity was very tied up in certain political and practical beliefs that made it very hard to express yourself in a lot of ways, especially as a male. When I went to college and studied sociology (among other things) I found out a lot of things that radically changed what I knew to be true about the world, and unfortunately this made me feel very alienated from my family and even like I had betrayed them, despite knowing that that wasn’t true.
White Bucket is a song about reclaiming my childhood to overcome that feeling of betrayal. In a lot of ways it’s very sentimental, just remembering times and places and how important my family was and still is to me. The song’s conclusion is kind of two-fold, it’s about learning to accept love and how to love people even when things change in big ways between you, but the ending, which is meant to be a bit sarcastic, takes a firm stand to say that I do not need to suppress my emotions or what I now believe in order to belong in the family.”
