They had this to say about the track, "'Daggers' was the song on the record that was written, and rewritten, over and over again.

We couldn't think of a better way to do that than to introduce an entire verse of Zero, and try to make a genre-connecting bridge. (read more)

The career he had devoted himself to was now taking him away from his son, but that career was also making it possible to provide for him.
