According to an interview with The Music Network
, Mark Foster titled the track after an ex who was "partying a lot." He went on to explain that the lyrics embody the attitude of Hollywood's drug culture scene. "They're the young, hot, up and coming, powerful people that are gonna run the world," he said. "But they're just going out and doing drugs every night. "They're saying it with this big smile of their face like 'I'm great, everything's great,' 'but don't you see that you're completely out of your mind on drugs right now that you can't even stand?' Their whole life is f--ked."
