Songfacts®:

  • Speaking to Cameron Edney of Australia's Scene magazine, vocalist Matt Tuck said lyrically this track is one of the most personal cuts on Temper Temper. He explained that it delves "into the darker side of being in Bullet, the rough times... drinking too much, experimenting with drugs, being a bit too rock 'n' roll. It's letting people know that it is an amazing lifestyle, but at times it can be a dark, lonely place, especially if you're not enjoying yourself. It's a shi--y place to be when things get tough."
