Nickelback had more trouble penning this song than any other of the numerous tracks they've penned over the years. Chad Kroeger explained to Noisecreep why it took the band six weeks to complete it. Said the Nickelback frontman: "We had the verse and we knew the verse was good and then the chorus just kept kicking us into mediocreville. And it just wasn't coming around. So we rewrote and rewrote and rewrote and rewrote until one day, out of pure frustration, I was just like, 'God, we're just smashing our faces into the same wall over and over again! This is like some episode of the f---ing Twilight Zone! And I grabbed the guitar and it just came right out. And Joe [Moi, producer] was like, 'Oh, dude, do that again!' And I was like, 'What?' And he was like, 'Just do what you just did there.' And I sang this little melody and went round and round. And he's like, 'That's us right there.' And I was like, 'Oh God, it doesn't have to be this difficult."

Sounds like it's about someone who has been cast out of society (not necessarily in the literal sense) for the things they've done in the past but is trying to redeem themselves by becoming a better person. Or it could be more spiritual like trying to atone for sins before death.
