  • This was the first song that Devildriver's new guitarist Neal Tiemann brought to the table during the writing process for the Trust No One album. Guitarist Mike Spreitzer said: "He had a great deal of tunes to show me when he first joined the band. After listening to all of them, 'Daybreak' was the first one that I felt deserved a place on the record."
  • Singer Dez Fafara explained the track's meaning: "This song is about not fearing the unknown, and never giving up in life no matter what life throws at you, learning to hold your head high through even the darkest of times."
