Songfacts®:

  • Jillian Banks wrote the lyrics for this biting kiss-off back in the mid-2000s when she was 15. She explained to Refinery29: "I always knew I was going to use those lyrics someday – they're some of the first lyrics I ever wrote, like a stream-of-consciousness thing. They still mean so much to me and they still correlate to my life sometimes and they're still me, somehow. So I feel like this song's been a part of me for a long time."
