Having survived heavy alcohol and drug issues, Filter singer Richard Patrick can relate to others going through the same difficulties. This song was inspired by one particular girl who reached out to him. He told Artist Direct: "I'm in this secret society of people who stay sober off of alcohol and drugs and because of that I know a lot of other people who give up. The give up is killing themselves. They can't drink themselves to death, which is what they want to do. They end up killing themselves. It's literally burning someone's house down and burning their lives up."
"I used to know this lady," he continued, "who would put cigarettes out on her legs and make these patterns there. She'd scar them, and it was like crop circles. There were all of these burns in a geometrical shape like crop circles. That's taking it to another whole level. Having survived my drug years, you meet a lot of amazing people who hopefully get their s--t together but most of them don't. They hurt themselves. They find relief in pain. It's heavy duty s—t."
