Guitarist Joshua Moore told Artist Direct
that when We Came as Romans went in to record "To Move On Is To Grow," which was the single they released before Understanding What We've Grown to Be
, he had the music for this song as well. As the band only had time to record one single they decided to record "To Move On Is To Grow" rather than "Mis//Understanding." "I'm really glad because that song eventually evolved into what 'Mis/Understanding' is now, " he continued. "I didn't have the same lyrics for it or anything back then. It's funny to see how that worked out. If we would've released it last year, it could've been a completely different song. We didn't, and I kept writing for this CD."
