This was the first song that Ryan Clark penned for the Extremist album. He told Decibel magazine: "I actually wrote most of the lyrics for the chorus laying in the makeshift bunk of our van while on tour in late 2012. I really wasn't in the writing mindset, but the idea just came to me, and I liked the concept. I guess it came from just enjoying where we were at as a band… The words are essentially about my desire to continue writing and playing music for as long as I live."
This is the only track on Extremist that features more of a Hardcore-style breakdown in the bridge. Clark said: "We have made some pretty broad steps away from Metalcore over the past few years, but sometimes I just can't help myself."
