Background

Mike Shinoda posted on Twitter on December 6, 2018, "Hey guys, thanks for the preview! FYI, “what the words meant is actually about a conversation with another artist (not LP) whose songs I’ve loved for a while. I didn’t know what their lyrics were about. She told me their album was about the loss of her sister. So WTWM is about understanding that kind of grief as a person and artist. It’s about having a new (and unfortunate) understanding, due to tragedy."[1][2]
