This track features Jamey Jasta of the American Metalcore band Hatebreed. P.O.D. got friendly with Jasta while both bands were performing at Ozzfest in 2000, and this collaboration came about when the Hatebreed singer retweeted a tweet of P.O.D.'s. The band tweeted Jasta back asking if he was interested in laying down vocals on this track and within a couple of days Jasta had completed his part.
Lyrically, the song has "an apocalyptic, end-of-the-world vibe." Frontman Sonny Sandoval explained to Artist Direct this is because, "over the past few years, I've been on this Revelation and Armageddon kick."
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
