In a 2022 Songfacts interview, Malinowski shed light
on his thought process behind writing the verses. "In terms of what I was thinking - especially with the verses - at this point right now when I talk to my friends and you see society at large, two people can witness the same thing and be on completely different sides of an issue," he said.
"But, if they talk about it in just adjectives, they think that they're talking about the exact same thing. Although they're falling on the totally different ends of the spectrum. It's like we're having a similar experience, but hanging on totally different polarities of an issue."
