Songfacts®:

  • This was released as the lead single from The Order Of Things. Vocalist Phil Labonte told The Pulse of Radio why the track was chosen as the first representation of the album. "It's kind of more of a rock song," he explained. "That wasn't what we initially thought was gonna be the first single, you know, when we were writing."

    "I mean, the song came together and we were like, 'You know, this one's really cool,'" Labonte added, "and then the label came in and were like, 'We want to put this one out first,' and we were like, 'Really?' And they were like, 'Yeah,' and we were like, 'Okay, it's cool with us, you know, it's not a… We're proud of the whole record."
  • The song is way more melodic, in comparison to All That Remains' earlier tunes. Asked by Radio.com about a potential backlash for releasing more accessible material, Labonte replied: "I got into Iron Maiden just after [1988's] Seventh Son of a Seventh Son album came out. I went back bought all their other records. People would say, 'Well, they were good until Seventh Son, when they started using keyboards, then they sucked!' Come on! The instruments that they are playing have an effect on whether or not you like a band?"
