Vocalist Marshall Gallagher had this to say about the importance of the song for the record:
“Yellowbelly' represents the core of Earth Is A Black Hole. “It came out early in the writing process and really informed the rest of the record,”.

It's about not letting fear, doubt or ego stop you from making connections, because the opportunity could end at any moment. I've personally spent a lot of time being pessimistic and isolated and whatnot, but I decided I'd rather test the limits of my love and free will.
That's going to be a lifelong endeavour I think, and will take some time to learn but it's better than dying, knowing I didn't try as hard as I could.”
