Songfacts®:

  • This song is about doing drugs. Asked by Ink 19 if anyone has a drug problem, the band's drummer Morgan Rose said, "I don't think any of us had any real problems. We just dabbled a little bit. So that's written about that."
  • Rose said this was going to be called "Venetian Blinds" as a joke because according to him, "anybody that does a little too much coke, or speed, knows that you spend the majority of the night sitting in the room looking out the blinds."
