The album's concept and story follows a desert wanderer who has been handed a death sentence.[1] Themes of death and survival are woven into the song's lyrics, which were inspired by experiences members of the band had when family and friends were recently diagnosed with cancer.[1]

“At the end of the story, the person simultaneously dies and is saved,” Dailor said. “It's about going through cancer, going through chemotherapy and all the things associated with that. I didn't want to be literal about it. But it's all in there. You can read between the lines.”

“We're reflecting on mortality,” bassist-vocalist Troy Sanders said in a statement. “To that end, the album ties into our entire discography. It's 17 years in the making, but it's also a direct reaction to the last two years. We tend to draw inspiration from very real things in our lives.”[4]
