Vocalist Josh Franceschi explained the background of the song to Kerrang! magazine: "Lyrically, it deals with the people we knew when we were younger," he said. "Whenever we came back off tour, we'd go to a bar and there'd be 20 or 30 of our mates. As you get older, your world gets smaller, and you long for those days, but you recognize there was an element of falseness to it. I got a lot of things off my chest here."
