This song addresses America's over-dependence on prescription drugs. Frontman Tyler Connolly explained to Billboard
"I really wanted to discuss how messed up America is with this prescription drug thing. When I got divorced, I went and saw a therapist and the first thing she said was, 'I want to put you on some beta blockers or some sort of anti-depressant stuff' and I'm like, 'No! No Way! What? How is that the first thing you want to do?' I just feel like something's wrong and I felt like the song needed to be written and people needed to hear it."
Connolly added that he felt the song's message was even more important following the death of Chris Cornell, of which the news broke about during the sessions for creating the song's music video.
"It seems like every week something terrible is happening. I mean, Chris Cornell... and when we shot the video for it all these directors we talked to were like, 'Oh yeah, I had a huge prescription drug problem, so this hits home' and all that stuff. So it's a really important song."
