Songfacts®:

  • This song features Alice Cooper reciting a spoken word message. The legendary shock rocker's contribution was recorded at his home studio in Phoenix. Theory of a Deadman frontman Tyler Connolly told Loudwire, "I flew out to where he lives. He's got a studio at his house, he has a radio show there, and it was really straightforward."

    "They had the stuff at his house, but Howard Benson, the producer, was back in LA – he couldn't go. So we just had a Skype call. Howard could hear everything that was going on and tell Alice what to do."

    "Alice was great; he's a pro. He'd never even seen the lyrics before. He's like, 'I got this.' It's like a one-take wonder with this guy; he's great."
