In an interview with Mean Street magazine, lead guitarist and songwriter Devon Williams said about the album: "I think I have grown into my mind. I know who I am, and I have an identity. I know how I work. Idle Will Kill describes me better. The underlying theme of all the songs is about me being my own person. The songs are a realization that I’m all I have. And all of these other people are excessive, and sometimes, they are really disappointing."
