Julian Casablancas explained the song’s title to the NME: “How it came about is that we had the song and it was done without a chorus, so I was like, ‘I’ll wing it, I’ll figure something out’ and one day I sang that over the chorus and that song was done.” (Source Is This It Songfacts).

Now I'm staying there just for a while
I can't think 'cause I'm just way too tired
