Songfacts®:

  • Bury Tomorrow's relationship with their American record label broke down in the period between their 2009 debut album Portraits and their sophomore set 2012's Union of Crowns. It got to the point that the group's future was in jeopardy and it was only the support of their fans that kept them going during this dark period. This song describes the rush the quartet felt in coming back from the brink and surviving. Vocalist Daniel Winter-Bates explained to Kerrang!:

    "We've had situations where we felt like we couldn't physically be in a band anymore, where we were dropped from labels, of management. No one wanted to touch us media wise. We were at a point where the only thing that got us back was our fans. Absolutely nobody else gave us the time of day."
