Vocalist Jayden Seeley explained the song's meaning to Kerrang!: "It's a story of a girl that broke my heart, but at the same time I broke her heart. The line: 'I still miss your mother, your sister and brother. But it doesn't really matter to me now,' has definitely choked me up in the past."
The song's subject matter of heartache means this is the hardest With Confidence track for Seeley to play. He explained: "When playing live I think it's really important to get into the headspace you were in when you wrote the song, so I'll always try to step back into what I was feeling, and really mean what I'm singing."
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
