Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track of Americana singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham's fourth album, Tomorrowland. The record was recorded in Malibu, California with producer Justin Stanley and was self-released through Bingham's new independent record label Axster Bingham Records on September 18, 2012.
  • Speaking with Artist Direct, Bingham said all of the songs on Tomorrowland, "come from a similar place - traveling around." He explained: "There are so many places you go and people you meet. When you get home, you can reflect on all of these places you went to, what the world is going through, and how it makes you feel. Poverty and corruption are endless things that repeat themselves in history."

    Bingham concluded that this song is "a take on all of that. There's a lot of reflecting on the whole scene."
