Opening track of The Twilight Sad's second album Forget The Night Ahead. It premiered as a free download on May 2009.
The song was one of the last songs to be written for the album. They describe it as a "more sparse sound than what was on the first album". The title was taken from "Notes Toward a Mental Breakdown", a chapter of the 1970 novel The Atrocity Exhibition by J. G. Ballard.
