Though the band always knew this track would start the album, it's arrangement has altered since the original demo. Brown explained to Artist Direct
: "Initially, I had this wicked keyboard synth part. The way that it played just built anticipation. We were like, 'This needs to open the record. You can feel the anticipation of it.' If I remember correctly, Tate sat down by himself one day and composed that string part that comes up at the beginning. We wanted to change the keyboard and use this string part. It was totally different, but it was much more acoustic and real than the synths. It made for such a nice ambient lead into the whole record."
