Place Your Debts features Jim in various locations at various stages of the day, making and breaking eye contact and mouthing the lyrics to the song. It feels like he is trying to convey the thoughts of the song directly to you so you understand it isn’t just a song, but coming from a place in the heart and mind. It captures the surroundings of his environment in a spinning and breathtaking style. Then returns us to darkness, showing us that our inspirations and dreams come in a cycle of being alive and being in a state of rest.
Jim describes this song as dealing with trauma and how it can become so many things unplanned especially when left unaddressed. He also indicates that the “Debt” portion of the song is a reference to time lost because you didn’t work on yourself. The eerie hums that grow into orchestrated chords and rhythms seem to reflect the feeling in his lyrics.
