Andy Biersack wrote this song with religion on his mind. He told Kerrang!: "I like to use religious images in mind, writing, I don't do it to try and beat controversal, but it serves my lyrical style well. As someone who grew up in a small town in the US, Christianity and, in my specific case, Catholicism, is so ubiquitous. It's a good cover-all for everything I've experienced."
"I guess I would consider myself an atheist – I struggle with the idea of titles, but don't think I'm agnostic, because that's a bit of a copout. I don't believe in a traditional God," Biersack continued. "That said, I have a strong defence of religion where I feel I'm playing for their team, I just don't wear the same jersey. I have a deep love for the positives of religion can build; the feelings of hope and faith that many religions offer. I greatly dislike the 'atheist religion' for that reason; those people disregarded intelligence level of anyone who is a 'believer' – I don't agree with that."
