At first, Wayne had trouble coming up with lyrics beyond the simple chorus. "When it breaks into the chorus, that's just a simple, emotional thing. But in the beginning, I did struggle with what do I sing previous to that?" he told Diffuser
. "I had read a couple of absurd little passages online about something and I just thought, 'I'm gonna go out there and sing these f---in' bizarre words against what we've set up, what you might be expecting.' And to do those opening lines, 'White trash rednecks, earthworms eat the ground,' everyone's going, 'Wait, what are you saying?' Which is exactly what I thought, you know, that’s what we want. So that’s already got everything you want about the mood."
He continued: "Sometimes I think about it like when you go to eat. It's like I've got all the flavors, everything is fresh and what is there left to do? It's like, 'Well then I'll make the table a different color.' And you'll be like, 'What a great experience.' And you'll remember I had potatoes and steak, but the table was like, f---ing, green, and it blew your mind. It's just these little details that let it be."
