In the bridge, Benni passionately belts out, "Family Ties...realize I don’t mess with you guys, I don’t mess with you guys / Ain’t gonna lie... if we had to stand our ground, no, I don't mess with you guys, I just stand by my side, my side." His lyrics delve into themes of loyalty, energy, and power, themes that resonate deeply with the LGBTQIA+ community and the connections formed within it.
As Daktyl and Benni Ola put it, "This song is like a beautiful chaos, the aftermath of an explosion, and the genuine connections that remain. That's the essence of family ties—the things you'd wholeheartedly embrace."
