  • Lyrics
  • Guitarist/keyboardist Anand Wilder told Complex magazine regarding this song: "We were trying to be as minimal as possible. Just a few elements. I don't know if we achieved it, but that was the goal with that one. It was inspired by Prince. I wish Prince could sing it."
  • This song is actually two separate recordings glued together. Wilder told Complex magazine: "You can notice at the end. The tempo changes at the end. We took two different completely distinct recordings, and pasted them together."
