Songfacts®:

  • Marmozets singer Becca MacIntyre wrote this track about the craziness of the touring lifestyle. She explained to Kerrang:

    "We've been in situations most people wouldn't like to be in. Sometimes on the road you feel suffocated, but at the end of it all you've got this treasure. It's about accepting the treasure and poison, and letting it be. That's just the way life is. I didn't suffocate or die from touring, but when it's good, there's just nothing better in the world. We've had a f--king great time!"
