This song was originally written for Kalnoky's other group, Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, on their EP A Call to Arms in 2002. Several members of BOTAR ended up becoming members of Streetlight Manifesto.
The first version of The Beatles "Helter Skelter" was a 27 minute jam, so you can imagine what Ringo was going through pounding away all that time. To convince the guys that he needed a break, he screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!" This was included on the fadeout.
