Songfacts®:

  • This song began as a daily warmup exercise for Phillips, but it evolved into Behind The Light's most haunting track after the addition of Dave Egger's mournful cello. "He came up with a cool string part. I wanted to slap him because it's so good," Phillips told Radio.com.
  • The song features dreamlike imagery. "That song, it's about how you can see something, but you're not really looking at the whole picture," said Phillips. "You're just looking at the most obvious thing instead of looking at what's deeper in the painting."
