Vocalist Tyler "Telle" Smith explained to Noisecreep
how a 2009 Jamie Foxx-starring film inspired the song: "When we wrote '2012' I knew right away that I wanted the song to be very intense. I wanted it to be something that was straightforward, something where anyone could get a pretty clear meaning of what it's about. I had watched the movie Law Abiding Citizen
right before I wrote '2012' and it was fresh in my mind. I wanted to put into words the way that movie made me feel, from the main character's point of view."
