Songfacts®:

  • Electric Century comprises former My Chemical Romance bass player Mikey Way, New London Fire frontman Dave Debiak, and ex-Stars In Stereo bassist Justin Siegel. Way told MTV News that he chose the name because it represented "change." "When people first used the term 'Electric Century,' it represented the shift from steam power to electricity, and it changed the entire universe," he said. "And, for me, this is a complete change in my life."
  • This was the first single to be released by Electric Century. The lyrics delve into addiction and depression. "The song is about somebody who's struggling with addiction; there really bright spot," Debiak told MTV News. "I mean, the chorus lifts and you can sing along to it, but there really is no happy ending to it, so to speak ... when we recorded it, we kind of stepped back, and we had to be like 'Wow, that's interesting."
