This quasi-ballad features lyrics penned by vocalist Randy Blythe
. He also came up with the video treatment. "I wrote the song about the dangers of self-obsession in our distressingly myopic and increasingly entitled 'me-now/now-me' culture," Blythe explained. "Just like the couple in the video, many people can't seem to look past their own relatively small problems to see the bigger picture: the world is in serious trouble. Having a bad day at work, or a fight with your significant other, or getting a crappy haircut or table service does not in any way shape or form constitute an emergency. Sometimes things just don't work out the way we want them to, [so] deal with it."
"People who only see their own problems eventually wind up alone because no one wants to hear their crap anymore," he continued. "We all know someone like that, always whining and complaining about some inconsequential setback as if it were the apocalypse. This song is for those people."
