Relationships within the band were at their lowest ebb during the recording of Staind
. Things deteriorated to the extent that singer Aaron Lewis and Mike Mushok were barely speaking to one another and longtime drummer Jon Wysocki departed from the band following the recording process in May 2011. Lewis told Audio Ink Radio
this track reflected the difficult process of laying down the album. He said: "It all manifested itself through the song - the duress and struggle that it was to make this record."
