Songfacts®:

  • Seether frontman Shaun Morgan explained the story behind this song to The Pulse of Radio:

    "I stopped doing cocaine and all those kinds of things about a year and a half ago - maybe just almost two years ago - and it gave me a whole new clarity on life and things that I see and the way I perceive the world, and I think it's me reaching into that time of my life and almost apologizing [laughs] or just laying it out that it's, you know, this is what it was."
  • A number of fans have pointed out similarities between this song and Tool's 1996 Aenima track "Stinkfist."
  • The eerie video clip is full of references to modern-day horror culture. Drummer John Humphrey told Amnplify: "That was our third video with Nathan Cox. He is an amazing director. Each video with him has been completely different than the one before. In other words, 'Same Damn Life' (Where we dressed up as old dudes as a complete comedic vibe) is nothing like the dark, black and white, nightmare of "Let You Down."
