  • A Day to Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon lends his pipes to this track. "A Day to Remember have been friends of ours since 2008," explained August Burns Red guitarist JB Brubaker to Loudwire. "We've been talking about guest vocal spots and the potential of someone singing for us and Jake [Luhrs] mentioned if anyone was going to sing on the record it was going to be Jeremy. He's a good buddy of ours and he's also very creative so we reached out to him and he was totally down for it."
  • McKinnon both sings and screams on the song. "We showed him the section that we wanted him to sing or scream on, whatever he wanted to do and we gave him creative leeway for him to do what he wanted on the section," Brubaker explained. "He wrote his own lyrics for his part based on what the song was about and he knocked it out of the park for us … It was cool that we got to get his full range as a vocalist on the song. We're grateful that he was kind enough to be a part of it."
  • The song's music video focuses on homelessness, an issue that guitarist Brent Rambler said that society needs to address. "A lot of homeless people led normal lives just like everyone else before they landed on the streets," he stated. "They deserve help and respect to get back on their feet – not judgmental looks and whispers."
