This song finds vocalist Liam Cormier distressed at the state of the world today. He explained to Terrorizer magazine: "Thinking about how we live in an age that we should be solving world hunger, getting rid of all these problems but instead things are even worse. I guess it's that more metal side of things where you just look at the negative things in the world, the idea that we've been able to discover the atom and things like that but then people use it to their own gains and to destroy."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
