Songfacts®:

  • On this haunting bluesy anthem Flowers, who grew up a Mormon, sings, "Because I pray at a church with no steeple, doesn't mean I can't walk with God." He explained to Rolling Stone: "That song is about my journey. My parents let me live home [in Utah] when I was 15 to go to Las Vegas to find whatever it was I was looking for. And at that time I hadn't been going to church. But I don't think that just because you don't go to church you forfeit the right of having any guidance or help from God."
  • Killers drummer Ronnie Cannucci was the man behind the drumkit on this track.
