On the single: DREAM said: I wanted to write a song that captures the feeling of being high on life. I’ve never actually been high, but I can imagine what it feels like. Being at the top of Everest is like being on top of the world, and I’ve had moments where I’ve felt that way. I’ve also had moments where I’ve felt pretty down on myself. But at the end of the day, my main obligation in life is to be true to myself, to find my Everest, and to climb it every day.

The video for “Until I End Up Dead” features a YouTube fundraiser for the Sarcoma Foundation of America who also works closely with The One Of Us Global Foundation, a non-profit set up by Technoblade’s father (known as MrTechnoDad in the streaming and gaming community). Dream and MrTechnoDad co-wrote the music video treatment and MrTechnoDad makes a small cameo in the video - playing the doctor. There are many nods to Technoblade including Dream holding a pig flying away and small crown in the video, both playing homage to Technoblade’s streaming avatar which was a pig wearing a crown. Most recently, MrTechnoDad hosted a fundraiser on the one year anniversary of Technoblade’s death that featured twenty plus creators and streamers - including Dream.
In addition, the fight scene early in the music video is a reference to a major internet interaction between that took place between Dream and Technoblade’s through a MrBeast video entitled 1v1 duel with a $100,000 prize to find “Who’s the world's best Minecraft player.” Even though Technoblade won, they split the prize money and went from rivals to friends. Creating the now well known “RivalsDuo” to refer to Dream and Technoblade.
