Songfacts®:

  • This song combines "electronic and radio-friendly elements," keyboardist Jordan Fish said during a track-by-track interview with Kerrang. He added: "It's about people who are negative influences and how when they leave your life things get much better. It's still got characteristics of some of the bigger songs we've done before."
  • Vocalist Oli Sykes penned the lyrics, so Bruce said he couldn't specify exactly whom the singer is addressing, but he "can think of a few people it might be about."
  • The video comes courtesy of animator Extraweg and features a rubber-like digital cast of Oli Sykes' head. Talking to BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac, the band described the clip as featuring "a cyborg version of Oli getting off with himself."
