Jared Leto wrote this ballad in Berlin in 2007. Guitarist Tomo said: "It's dark and there's not much guitar on it, other than some acoustic in the beginning and a little bit in the chorus. Other than that, it's all keyboards. But that's cool. We just want to do what's right for the song."
According to the Hurricane Songfacts, on this song Jared Leto asks the question "Where is your God?" Other tracks on This Is War also feature lyrics where he appears to be questioning faith. .
