  • Written at a time when A Thousand Horses was frustrated with the music industry, vocalist Michael Hobby and guitarists Bill Satcher and Zach Brown penned this track about who they wanted to be as a band. "I think everybody has been in that position, whether as an artist or just in life in general where you find yourself needing to break out and do your own thing and stand for yourself and what you believe in and be your own person," Satcher told The Boot. "That's what that's about. It's a true story about some experiences we've gone through."
