Frontman Conrad Keely told The Skinny the story of this song: "I was working on the artwork, at home in my apartment, looking out of the window and on to the streets of Brooklyn – getting inspiration from the ambient noise. It just hit me and came into my head, then I moved over to the piano and worked it out – it was as simple as that. The lyrics took a little bit more work but they ended up being about meditation. My parents were into transcendental meditation when I was a kid. I did it out of my own fascination, even though I was only seven years old, but it was really beneficial. It's still something that to this day I try to do when I'm feeling very off-center."
An alternative edit of this song was previously included on the band's 2008 Festival Thyme EP.
