Live performance history

The song was part of the band's repertoire prior to the release of their album and continues to be played live on occasion to the present. The song has been performed in notably different versions: the original version was performed up until 2000, with a piano-based version normally being played during the Black Market Music tour and the Meds and Battle for the Sun tours. During the Sleeping with Ghosts tour, the song was played with a hip-hop inspired drum beat and more synth-oriented. The song returned to the setlists towards the end of the Battle for the Sun tour in 2010, with a new arrangement.
