Pierce told Artist Direct that it took McCombs some time to get used to the song's soft acoustic musical backing. He explained: "The words are very personal. This song has such a cool vibe to it. We never had anything that deep so I think it took Ryan a bit to get used to it. Musically, it's really awesome because that song really takes me to a personal place. Back in 2002 when we were touring, before Dave [William, original Drowning Pool vocalist] passed away, we had a day off in Atlanta. Dave had found Zakk Wylde
's Book of Shadows
CD, and there's a lot of great music on that record. So, musically, I was influenced by Book of Shadows
and that vibe with the acoustic guitar. It takes me there, but lyrically this song is about alcohol. It's about being in love with alcohol. Some people have issues with it - whatever. We played that song at a place called Duke's in Dallas when we were still working on it, and the vibe in the room was so awesome. When we went in the studio, I think it turned out to be better than the demos. It's something so left field for Ryan that it took him a minute to get used to it. It's out of his comfort zone, but he sounds great. I love that song."
