This was one of the first songs Madina Lake worked on for World War III. Frontman Nathan Leone told Rock Sound magazine: "Mateo [Camargo, guitar] always comes up with these tapping bits that I feel define a lot of our songs. We tracked a lot of this one in a house we rented in Florida when we were recording The Dresden Codex EP."
Nathan Leone explained the song's meaning to Rock Sound magazine: "At the time I think the screws were starting to come loose, so psychologically we were all over the place. This song is about wondering in a positive way as opposed to a negative one. If you constantly wonder what could go wrong, something will. If you wonder what you could become or achieve or fulfill, that will manifest as well."
The Isley Brother's song, "Contagious," peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100. This meant that the band of brothers became the first group to score a Top 50 hit in six consecutive decades on the chart.
