Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Tom Searle told HMV.com the story of this song: "I was soundchecking when we were on the Warped Tour and I got my guitar out of the case and started playing and thought 'F--k, that sounds heavy,'" he recalled. "Turns out my guitar had been knocked out of tune and a string had come loose. After I played the show, I put it back in that mode and came up with the riff."
  • Tom Searle on the song's meaning: "Lyrically, it's about living in a democracy where every election you vote for what you deem to be positive change, campaigns like Obama's message of 'Hope', the election comes and goes and nothing changes, it's about the illusion of political choice."
