This song portrays the post-traumatic stress of a soured relationship and Houck's attempts to will himself out of his funk. It was inspired by the singer breaking up with his girlfriend whilst touring Here's to Taking it Easy
. "Relationships are tough when you're on the road, too-- my girlfriend would come on some of the tours, but it wasn't easy," Houck told Pitchfork
. "Drugs and booze were involved. So I lost the place, lost the girl, and lost my mind."
