This song features a piano part, which is unusual for AFI but not unique (The Sing The Sorrow
track, "Silver And Cold" also includes some tinkering of the ivories). Guitarist Jade Puget explained to Noisecreep
: "On the verse of that song which is a big part of the song there's no guitar at all, it's just piano and the sound in the background is actually a distorted brass, like a brass section. I was trying to create some layers that are a little different, left of center from what we're doing and take my guitar completely out it. It lends to spaciousness and really creates a bed for his vocal to sit where it's not like, cause guitars can take up a lot of space, so he has a lot of space to do that dynamic vocal."
