Bassist and co-vocalist Troy Sanders told Artist Direct
about the song. "I really gravitated towards that one from a lyrical standpoint, because I was able to craft what I thought were really powerful and appropriate words," he said. "It stems from something very dark and personal amongst myself. We like to mask it with metaphors. I remember personally feeling a sense of accomplishment in terms of what I did lyric-wise and vocally on the song. I really believed that one stood out to me amongst the whole album."
"Listening back, it had all of the elements of what we do," Sanders added. "It's not the heaviest. It's not the fastest. It's not the most epic. However, it's like, "That song is strong enough on all points to be the opener of the record!" Sure enough, it became that way."
