In our interview with Mutemath drummer, Darren King
, it was revealed this song is about the paranoia which can emerge from a religious upbringing: "That song is all about how we were raised. You're raised in this scene where there's a lot of talk of demons and you just talk of the Rapture, and as a kid, when a little airplane would fly overhead and you'd hear the sound, I would literally run and go check to see if my mom was still there, because I wanted to make sure that that sonic boom wasn't the Rapture. And if it was, I knew my mom would be gone for sure, because she was the best person I knew. So if Mom got raptured, and I'm still around, then I'm in trouble. So it was this paranoia. Or if you look at a dirty magazine for the first time when you're 11 or 12, and then for the rest of that year you wonder if you're going to go to hell – that's a true story of mine – and then toil over that. And then I went back to the gas station and I tried to apologize to the gas station attention for looking at the dirty magazine, and it was a completely different person that owned the place, they didn't have dirty magazines anymore. Weird stuff like that."
