"It's a pretty heavy story, but I wrote this song after watching my brother-in-law barely survive a week in a coma,"  Conrad Lambert tells Rolling Stone. "During this whole week, his life was hanging by a thread. He's a youngish guy and this experience gave me a perspective on the arbitrary nature of death. Death, like an owl that swoops down and snatches away the tiny shrew. Death is such a massive presence in our lives and yet we somehow manage to ignore it for most of the time. Until it comes and snatches someone close to us away."
