This The North Corridor track was finished in vocalist Pete Loeffler's home studio back in Illinois, after he grappled with some lingering dissatisfaction with the album. "This record was not easy. This record was tough," Loeffler acknowledged to Billboard magazine. "I basically didn't know if we were ever gonna finish it. It was almost like I wasn't happy with anything. There were a few songs that I knew were great ideas, and yet I couldn't put them out the way they were, so we actually had a point of crisis in the studio. We had some depressing moments there."
"I literally left L.A. without ('Last Days') done and I came home and worked on it at my house and added all these new parts and emailed them off to (co-producer) Joe Barresi," he added. "I think I was over-complicating the whole thing but I'm happy that it worked out."
