We decided to write a song about everything we’d been going through for the past three years – looking for a new singer, a new label & new management – just all the changes we made & all the frustrations we went through… but, have it coming from each of our four different perspectives. So, we broke it up, and said ‘Okay, you take the 1st verse, you take the 2nd verse,’ went away, wrote lyrics about our feelings about all the stuff we were going through, and then put it together. Then [we] wrote the chorus together. That was the 1st time we had ever done that, and it’s the only song on the album where the lyrics were actually written by everybody.
