Fletch Archerd, guitarist and vocalist of Arms for Elephants, had this to say about the single:
We chose “The Laws That Guide My Feet” to be our first single because it captures so many elements of our sound in just a few fleeting measures. Lyrically, the song exhibits multiple voices/characters at various points. Instrumentally it’s one of our more complex songs, and yet remains tethered to one simple hook in the chorus.
