The cinematic song from Billy Talent's fifth album Afraid of Heights
has a Muse-meets-Depeche Mode sound.
Lead singer Ben Kowalewicz talked about the process of creating the tune in his Songfacts interview
. "The interesting thing about that song is that it has a synth pad that runs through it, like [imitating beat], 'Dum-ding-dum-ding-dum-dum-ding.' The song has a gallop to it, right? So, [slapping hand on leg to imitate galloping sound], 'Dum-ding-dum-ding-dum-dum-ding-dum-ding,' so it makes you picture a Western. Like a guy riding on a horse, right? So then horses and chariots, it all lends itself to that."
He added: "I like that song not only because of the synth part, the groove and the beat, but I just think it stands out," he continued. "There's just something about it that's clever. Musically and lyrically it's uplifting and has these almost Hollywood crescendos."
