Itchin' On A Photograph Lyrics

I’m itchin’ on a photograph
Yeah I’m scratching on a thermostat
I’m giving up on looking back
I’m letting go of what I had

I’m itchin’ on a photograph
Yeah I’m scratching on a thermostat
I’m letting go all of that I had
I’m itchin’ on a...

    I think this song is talking about seeing an old photograph and feeling sad that those times are over but you get over it. For instance, you're married and have a couple kids. You find an old picture of you with a group of your childhood friends and you guys look happy as you can be. You feel sadness rush over you a you wonder "where are they all now?" And, as depressing as it may be, you know you'll never see them again. But, you snap out of it and are thankful for your life you have now with your spouse and your kids.

    I think this song means that he's letting go of everything he used to treasure and thought that was his reality he says that's he feels uncomfortable about the photo "itchin" and scratching on a thermostat he's finally letting go of he says feel the rain come now he means reality and "ever wonder how you can see now" he means that ever wonder how you could see things clearly that nothing is ever stable

    When you scratch it turns up the heat. When you itch you want something badly. He saw something on a photograph that he really wants badly. Catchy tune. Can't get it out of my head. The video has some progressive elements, but who knows what the actual meaning of the song is. It's an artform that is purposely ambiguous.

    It means,(video explains it). He didn't like who he was before.But now he is happy. The guy at the end of the video is gay and putting on make up.saying now in your ungodly generation,he can be gay,trans LGBT etc.. so he says he can de who he wants to be. Ungodly,sick freak. But he's happy. Libtard lyrics.

    I think it means that the good memories of his past are "itchin'" on him. That he is constantly bothered by the past and is trying to except his new life.

    I assumed it was something about liking photography. I mean its hipster type of band and nothing but hipsters own cameras now... Hes itching on a photograph which to me is like excited to capture that awesome shot! Just a rush or addicted to photographing. Which i think alot of people can relate if your a photographer.
