An "Intense and oddly uplifting rocker about a relationship torn by the Holocaust", the song is actually semi-biographical in nature telling about songwriter and vocalist Max Bemis's grandparents who were Holocaust survivors. It talks about their lives in the ghetto, in hiding, and in the camps. In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Bemis said: "I thought about what it would be like to be in love and be separated from the person you love, because these times are just as dire in a way. Anything can happen, in a war and terrorist attacks and cynicism and all these actors who oppose love."
