Josh Fraites died of a heroin overdose in 2001, and Jeremiah says the track "was written many years ago (July 2012) when I was visiting my parents back in New Jersey. My mom was a nursery school teacher and her classroom was connected to a small church, which had an upright piano. This is where I wrote the song."
He continues, "The melody and the chords strongly reminded me of my older brother, Josh, and my working title for the song became: Flightless Birds. The metaphor of a flightless bird seemed to work so well in capturing how I perceived Josh's troubled and difficult life: a soul who wanted to feel free but didn't know how. I changed the name to Josh because I fell in love with this idea I heard of how people die twice -- once when the soul leaves their body, and again when the last time somebody says their name. I hope when you listen to these songs you can feel as comforted and peaceful as I do."
