- In an interview , Flansburgh described this song:
For me, it was interesting to write something that was kind of that down. It wasn't intentional. I was trying to figure out how to do something that was just simple. And I think the combination of a really unadorned arrangement and a very direct kind of sentiment added up to something that seemed much more intense than I was intending.
