Songfacts®:

  • Asked by Kerrang! what Of Mice & Men song has the worst lyrics, Austin Carlile named this track. "None of us like this song – it's just didn't come out the way we wanted it," he said. "Our label loved it and they insisted it be the first song released of the album, and everyone heard it, and was like, 'What is this s--t?' We were saying, 'We told you, no one was going to like it!' We've only ever played it once, jamming with the Sleeping With Sirens guys, and that was it."
