Singer Chrissy Costanza told Kerrang! that this track contains her favorite lyrics on In Our Bones. She explained, "For me, it was related to anxiety, but it's kind of open-ended in a way because it can be about depression or any kind of personal demon that you have. It's about overcoming that kind of thing, and it also has a kind of relationshippy vibe. Being in a relationship is meant to be freeing, but in the end I had to free myself."
