Patrick Stump sings of someone wanting to be alone with their lover for eternity. Bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz told Kerrang! magazine: "I really let rip lyrically. Wanting to be alone together forever with someone is a feeling I've had a gazillion times. To me, this is more throwback Fall Out Boy."
The song is actually two different one tunes spliced together. One was penned by Stump and Wentz, the other by guitarist Joe Trohman and both sounded coincidentally alike, with different perspectives. Trohman told Kerrang!: "It wasn't supposed to be a Fall Out Boy song, but it took the best aspects of the pop side the guys worked on and the aspects of mine which were kind of shoegazery, and made it almost cinematic."
John Lennon's lead guitar work on Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" proved to be his final creative act. It was upon their return home after completing laying down the track that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.
