Ramsey Elkholy comments on the song by saying:
It’s a song that reflects more on the journey than the destination. We often miss out on the best parts of life when we put too much focus on material goals. That’s the basic gist of the song.

“Buy Yourself A Dream” is the follow-up to the chase your dreams positive vibes of “Kids of Summer.” On the track, a hypnotic beat gives way to swirling ambient pulse as thought-provoking lyrics percolate to the forefront.
A danceable groove hinges on glaring riffs and a chantable refrain. “It’s got an upbeat vibe that feels right for summer, but also speaks to the times, in terms of all the youth energy we are seeing out in the streets, which I think is leading to real change” explains Elkholy.
