On the single, Josh Ostrander stated:

“I went to Dan Wilson’s house and asked him if we could write a song like “Low” by Cracker. The song that came from that attempt was “Come On”. During this time the Malibu Fires were burning, the idea of watching the city burn was where this imagery came from. Sean Friday played drums, Peter Hayes played guitar as my hand was still busted, produced by Lars Stalfors, mixed by the legend Spike Stent.”
