  • Frontman Chino Moreno told Artist Direct how this song was written: "Sonically, that's a Stephen (Carpenter, guitar) song. A lot of people think when we have the ethereal stuff, it's always me, but Stephen was playing with his pedal board and he just got on to this song. Everybody just fell into place after that, and it sounded like chaos to me—but the most romantic, dirty chaos. Lyrically, I matched it a little bit. The song is like exploding out into the night and just going for it."
