Tremonti explained the song's lyrical content to MusicRadar.com
: "I wrote this song about a fictional apocalyptic scenario. Just watching the news every day, every week, it seems as though there's always some way for somebody to end it all. After I'd written this song and I'd heard what Myles had done for 'Bleed It Dry
,' I was like, 'Wow, we both went there coincidentally.'"
