After their huge success in the mid-'90s, The Pumpkins weren't too active and were somewhat forgotten. In 1999-2000, with the return of drummer Jimmy Chamberlain, they decided to make one more album and hopefully have it be a great one. It was, with the success of this song and "Stand Inside Your Love." The line, "Ya know I'm not dead" meant the band was just as lively as they were in the previous years.
