Jacoby Shaddix explained the song's lyrical content to Artist Direct
: "I had to go there (Las Vegas) with my armor and protection. I was standing in the middle of the good and the bad and sin and salvation. Those elements were tugging at me."
"Truly, Vegas was the perfect place for me to make this record because it really strengthened me. If I could go out on the road and keep my life together and stay on the right track here in Vegas and enjoy myself, that's it. It's a war out there in this crazy ass world."
