In an interview with Melissa Maria of Rat TV, lead vocalist Ivan Moody stated that he wrote the song, to talk about torments in his history. Moody stated that he and his parents never agreed on anything, that his mother still disapproves of his career in music, and that writing the song was a way of getting those thoughts out in the open.
The video, directed by Emile Levisetti, begins with a young child in white clothing drawing on a white floor surrounded by white walls. He begins drawing what he remembers in his life, including his home, parents, and events. It is hinted that he's abused and his father is an alcoholic. He continues drawing his memories as he grows. He gets married, joins the military, and returns to a less than perfect life. In the white room, he is shown having fits of rage and angst throughout the video. Eventually, he grows old and passes away in a hospital. Just as he dies, he drops a fifty cent coin (shown previously hanging from his carseat as an infant) and a janitor pockets it. He is then shown entering the white room (presumably heaven) as a child again.
The members of Five Finger Death Punch are not seen performing the song, although they are spotted in the video.
