This song evolved from writing sessions for the Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz
album. The first verse is in fact the same as on Miley Cyrus' ode to her late dog "The Floyd Song (aka Sunrise)
." Wayne Coyne explained: "It's in its original key (we made it a slightly higher register for Cyrus) and has the same melody and chords but with a radically different vibe."
He added: "The other verses are a kind of philosophical take on the struggle and acceptance of death, the death of love, the pain of living in the face of sadness... but it is, I think, also about being in awe of beauty and power and just the weirdness of existing. Ha!"
