"Mood Ring" is a song about struggling with mental health, a feeling of disconnect from the world, and the yearning for peace and understanding. The narrator attempts to cope by engaging in spiritual activities such as sun salutations, burning sage, and cleansing crystals, as well as consuming celebrity news and vitamins. Despite the physical changes and activities, the narrator still cannot comprehend their feelings and thus relies on a mood ring to quantify their emotional state and provide clarity. Ultimately, the narrator expresses a desire to find peace and understanding, with the song ending on a hopeful note, as they ask if things will be alright.
