Remnants from dreams! Gambino talked about writing this song in the morning and what “3005” is actually about. “All the good songs where I’m like, ‘How did I even come up with that?’ were probably remnants from dreams. I feel like when you first wake up, you’re still close to who you really are.” Gambino told the story of th song in an interview with Fuse TV: “Everybody’s like, ‘It’s a love song’. It’s kind of an existential thing. I’m just really scared of being alone. When I was little, there was a big dog down the street. I was really scared of it. But when I was with my sister, when I knew I had to protect her, I wasn’t afraid of the dog as much because somebody was there. I had a purpose… I kind of feel lost. I kind of lost that, I feel.”
