album is very dark, with songs about being trapped in difficult situations. This song follows the travails of a sailor whose life on the sea has become mundane and depressing.
In our interview with The Devil Wears Prada lead singer Mike Hranica
, he called it, "A song loosely chronicling loneliness, and basically always missing love," adding that it relates to being on tour, where he is always missing his familiar friends and places.
The video, directed by Robert Sexton, presents the sailor as a puppet, counting the days before he can reunite with his wife. In the twist ending, we learn that the wife is dead, and he is visiting her grave.
