Songfacts®:

  • This song about Phillip Anselmo's early life was the first track written for Far Beyond Driven. The vocalist told Artist Direct about the background to the song. "That began with my infatuation with The Melvins and their interpretation of The Melvins—playing things drone-y, slower, and unpredictably. That song itself is so different for us in a way because of its elongated intro and almost a perfect Pantera piece. The verses are so signature f--king Pantera it's ridiculous."
