Album: The Paradigm Shift (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of several tracks on The Paradigm Shift that reflect frontman Jonathan Davis' struggles to detox from antidepressant medication. He told Rolling Stone: "Writing the record was really weird. They started writing, I think, in August (2012), and I didn't get into the studio until March, because I was going through all kinds of crazy s--t. My boy got diabetes and I had come off medication for my depression, and that fu--ed me up. I was in a straight haze. I detoxed off that medication – it was an anti-depressant, the anxiety and stuff. I'd been on it for three years and the doctor told me you gotta get off this, it's bad for you."
