This acoustic lament was written by vocalist Jeremy McKinnon on the tour bus during the band's 2009 tour with Bring Me the Horizon in the UK. It was demoed acoustically a couple of years later before being included on the Common Courtesy album.
The music video was shot in London. "The song was actually written in the UK, so it just seemed fitting to do a video that was based there for it," vocalist McKinnon told MTV News. "It was just cool to see the city like that. It was different for us, and that's why I liked it. It turned a rainy day into an experience I'll never forget."
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
