Vocalist KZ Staska shared the following:
This is one of the bleakest songs I think I've ever written. I wrote an early version of these lyrics stream of consciousness style at the onset of a severe depressive episode. I remember writing until I felt done, walking away, and coming back to read what I wrote. I remember feeling really uncomfortable when I read the line 'I would bash my skull against a brick wall if you told me happiness might leak out.' I hated that a line like that came out of me organically, without thought. I knew that discomfort was important. I had to rewrite a lot of it to give it structure and make it make sense once music was written, but I made sure to keep that line exactly as I wrote it.
This song uses the tarot and astrology imagery most heavily. It's about being so desperate for a single shred of hope that I turn to things I don't even believe in to try to find it. I tried to capture that same horrible depressive energy I felt when I wrote the song in the music video, but incorporate more of the ritualistic occult imagery from the narrative into it as well.
