Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist/keyboardist Alexis Taylor told the Sun newspaper that he thought this song contains the best lyrics he'd ever written.
  • Taylor explained the album title to Slate magazine: "I got to thinking about relationships and how quite an important moment takes place in the dark. As human beings, we are all 'made in the dark' to some extent. I was ruminating on the fact that important things you do are done by not speaking."
