The mother of Goijira's Joe and Mario Duplantier mother passed away after a year-long battle fighting cancer, during the recording of Magma. Their loss inspired the direction that Gojira take on the album and this song finds Joe Duplantier talking to his late mom directly. He explained to The Independent. "We were so inspired by how incredibly brave she was before she passed, she understood that there was no hope left and she embraced it. She gave us what she had to give, she took care of her material things, her bank accounts, her rent, all those details, in an attempt to detach herself from all worldly possessions.
It was a lesson, I had an example from my Mum on how to leave this world with grace and I'll have that forever, it's a gift that she gave to me and my brother and my sister. We have that in us and it's an incredible gift; I hope my own death will be as peaceful and beautiful as hers … we shall see."
The song's music video was directed by Alain Duplantier, the cousin of Joe and Mario Duplantier. It includes shots inside an empty house. Joe Duplantier explained: "One of the 'characters' featured in this film is 'Gayeres,' the family house where Mario and I grew up. We jammed to our first songs, started Gojira, and recorded most of our albums there."
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
