Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Nathan Leone explained this song to Kerrang! magazine April 4, 2009: "This is about panic attacks. We all get them and I get them a lot! It feels like your mind is going to slip, it's terrifying and they are horrific. You feel like you are going insane. I think our band lifestyle has made them worse, but I've had them my whole life. I used to throw up after playing soccer from sheer panic. It's just nerves and anxiety. It's the weirdest thing."
