Guitarist Dan Donegan explained to Artist Direct about this song: "It was just, lyrically, David (singer David Draiman) writing about more abusive relationships, whether it be a guy or a woman, but in most cases that I'm familiar with the women that feel like they are stuck, whether it's a verbal or physical relationship, and they're too afraid to walk out of it; they're too afraid to start their lives over so they just stay and they deal with the pain or they just suffer through it, and it drives them to the point that they want to kill that person and they just can never walk out whether they have kids involved or whatever, they just deal with the abuse that they take until they finally snap. I never understood why they couldn't just get the courage to walk away. I know it is a difficult thing to make that decision, but sometimes you might have to do that. Sometimes it might be better for you to realize that something isn't working and you need to start your life over. I think maybe they're just afraid of doing that. They're putting up a facade for their friends and family that their relationship or their marriage may be perfect when in all actually it's not."
