The track encourages audiences to abandon materialistic and superficial mindsets, trading those lifestyles in for something deeper and more significant. We only get one life, so we might as well make the absolute most of it. Elaborating on the song's meaning, NLM states, "Sometimes, the most profound truths in life are easy to understand but difficult to follow through on. That's the meaning behind our new song, 'Isn't it Obvious?' Embedded in driving drums and soaring guitars are lyrics challenging the listener to abandon materialism and superficiality for the deeper truths in life. It's a call to reject half-living for something deeper and more meaningful."
