Set It Up frontman Cody Carson wrote this fast-paced rocker in response to being betrayed by people he trusted. He learned the hard lesson that a friendly exterior can hide something sinister. "There's a lot of people that put up facades," he explained to the Songfacts Podcast
in 2021. "I was writing about two people who have done this sort of thing where they came across as super nice people, and then they totally screwed me over in the harshest way possible. And I'm like, man, I came into the industry so naive, thinking everyone's gonna be nice. We're all rooting for each other. And don't get me wrong, there are people out there that are incredible and they deserve all that credit. But I was just like, well, there's some bad people out here. So I was venting into that song."
