  • Lewis told The Chicago Tribune September 15, 2008: "It's my thinly veiled way of getting out of writing a strictly 'confessional' song. I may be a liar, or I may not be one."
  • This song references Lewis' only LSD experience, which happened when she was 14. The singer-songwriter explained to The Independent newspaper September 25, 2008: "I found the psychedelic experience to be totally terrifying. My friend was chasing me around the house with a knife. It was actually like a scene out of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."
