Regarding the lyrical inspiration for "Digital (Did You Tell)", Corey Taylor said:
Lyrically, it's basically about the isolation of the digital age where more and more people are afraid to come out of their bubble, more and more people are afraid to come out of their cocoon. They'd rather sit in front of an electric screen and pour their hate or pour their emotions anonymously into the world. And there's nothing cathartic about that; there's nothing healthy about that. And it's basically [just saying], 'Take a break, unplug, live your life for a while. Get out and experience life while you can because it could be gone [snaps fingers] like that.
