Matt Davies-Kreye (vocals) explained this song to Kerrang! magazine September 13, 2008 "The loss of innocence and what it is to accept the inevitable, a song about addiction, an addiction for life and the fear of letting go. It was one of the first batch of songs we wrote for the record and it turned out to be very powerful."
This was originally released as a special edition double A-side 7" single along with "Beneath the Burning Tree" on July 4, 2008 in the UK. This marked the first release for Funeral for a Friend's own record label, Join Us.
