Vocalist and primary lyricist Max Bemis told Alternative Press: "This is a song about death and how love relates to death, and the fear of death. It's kind of about how finding love alleviated my fear of death or my fear of growing old. It was a statement of recognizing my soul's link to [wife] Sherri's. It's about how when you really love someone and it's deep in your soul, after you die the soul endures and that love will burn on. If everything was stripped away and I had to answer after I die - consciously affirm the most important thing in my life--it would be Sherri, the defining thing in my life."
