  • This song is about Avenged Sevenfold's drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, who was found dead on December 28, 2009. It tells of how his passing has impacted on the band and speaks of the immense pain that the group members have experienced due to their loss.
  • At 10:57, this became the longest ever Avenged Sevenfold track to be recorded.
