Urie wrote the lyric with Sam Hollander, a songwriter who has stayed out of the spotlight. Hollander was trying to imagine what Urie has to deal with in his role of superstar lead singer.
"Brendon had written a chorus, and I got a call to mess around with some verse ideas," Hollander told Songfacts
. "What I love about that is it's obviously dripping in theatricality - it's just so over-the-top. When I heard what Brendon wrote in that chorus, it felt like this was an introduction to a brand new era of the band, so I was just trying to summon some imagery in those verses to play off of that and fuel the fire."
