  • Chad Gilbert (guitar) told Kerrang! magazine February 16, 2008: "I remember wanting to use the term it 'blow it' because my girlfriend at the time would always say, 'You're going to blow it!' Lyrically, it was at a point of time in our band when certain members were second-guessing what we were doing because their priorities in life were different. So this is about someone who's going to screw something up and they're going to regret it." Steve Klein (guitar) added: "We're trying to give this person a life belt before they go off the sinking ship."
