This was the track on The Silver Gymnasium that took vocalist and chief songwriter Will Sheff the longest time to write. "Not necessarily that I labored over it a long time," he told American Songwriter magazine, "but more in the sense that I would pick it up and work on it a little and come back to it six months later and work on it a little bit more."
"That song took a little more difficulty to get the lyrics where I wanted them to be," he continued. "But I think there was a point where I saw it from a different angle and once that happened the lyrics came really quickly. Sometimes that happens with a song where you keep turning it over, you put down and come back to it and very slowly it starts telling you what it wants to be."
