This track features vocals by Angels & Airwaves' Tom DeLonge. "He's, like, my childhood hero who's become a friend of mine," Say Anything frontman Max Bemis noted to Billboard magazine. "He took one small suggestion and built this crazy, awesome, layered thing. I don't tend to think about myself as some kind of huge success story and don't pat myself on the back too often, but when I heard that, I just thought, 'What the hell's happening with my life?!' I was doing a little schoolgirl thing in my house."
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
