Guitarist Zach Blair explained to Ultimate-Guitar.com
how this song's sound evolved: "I remember Tim, this riff, duh do uh diddlediddlediddle uh, and we even referred to it as somewhat like a southern rockish kind of riff. Because it is a different kind of sound than the rest of the stuff. But I think the idea in the first place was to go at it with that sort of more rock and rollish kind of feel. Which I think is a new kind of sound for the band pretty much for this record; that song to me sounded different than anything the band had done. But of course once we played it it sounded like Rise Again. So that's one of the things I was really excited about because it did have such a different approach than anything else that I'd really heard the band do."
