The song lyrics deal with frustration and a failure to express oneself. The intro is in G#, when playing live John Petrucci tunes up the guitar over the course of the intro. The main song is in A, following the theme of the album's songs being an rising octave. Although the "official" length of the track is 6:59, it, along with some of the other Octavarium songs, has a negative time of 37 seconds, for a total duration of 7:36 mins.

This song was first released as a promo along with Panic Attack earlier in 2004. This version was an edited version of 4:37 mins length.
