Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track of California alternative rock band Say Anything's self-titled fourth album.
  • Frontman Max Bemis told Alternative Press: "Ironically, this is the first song I wrote for the record, and it also became the first song on the record. It's pretty much a statement of purpose about what I think is wrong with the world or what is worth fighting against in the world. It covers two aspects: one is someone who is irresponsible and the other is one who claims too much responsibility and is obsessed with power. Both of which I think are two things wrong with society - people who do those things."
