Papa Roach was holed up in a Los Angeles mansion when they were writing The Paramour Sessions
album. Their drummer, Dave Buckner, was going through a divorce, and lead singer Jacoby Shaddix was "at the tail end of seven-eight years of debauchery." These struggles inspired the lyric. In our interview with Shaddix
, he explained: "That song was born from our failures. I pictured the brokenness of my drummer, going through that divorce, and how it's so hard to get through something like that."
