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.
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
