Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track of Florida rock band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' third full length album, Am I The Enemy. John Feldman, who helmed The Used's debut release, produced the record and it was released on August 30, 2011.
  • Vocalist Ronnie Winter told Alternative Addiction how Feldman pushed the song's demo forward. "As soon as we made the very first demo, which was just me and John Feldman, he went [ahead and went] through the mixing phase before he played it for me and after we wrote it," said Winter. "He kind of threw a bunch of digital stuff on there. And he said 'Okay, I added some programming. Tell me what you think about it, if you hate it we'll take it out. If you love it we'll keep it.' I heard it and I thought it was amazing so I said 'keep all of it and if you want to do any more, do more.' A lot of the credit on that goes to him on that. He's just really good at programming and he's able to go from a straightforward five piece rock band and throw just enough electronics to where you're not changing your style but giving it an edge."
