Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Dylan Baldi screaming "swallow." Radio.com asked the vocalist how many times he had to scream to get it right. Baldi replied: "That's all like first take stuff. Yeah, my voice can just do that stuff like endlessly."

    "But, the reason I chose 'swallow,' which honestly, has nothing to do with the song, is because my girlfriend is French and I asked her what her favorite English word was, because I wanted to repeat one word over and over and didn't know what to say," he continued. "She said it was 'swallow' so I was like, 'Alright, I'll just say the word "swallow."' Yeah, it ended up sounding good. It does sound pained. But it didn't hurt."
