Songfacts®:

  • Iraheta co-wrote this song with former Evanescence member David Hodges. She explained its subject matter to Entertainment Weekly: "It's out there for people who pre-judge, who pretty much judge a book by its cover. It's pretty simple, but it definitely focuses on how people talk before they even know someone or something, how they talk out of their butts and they just don't know what they're saying."
