Dog on a Leash

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Adelitas Way's third studio album Stuck, the song was released on April 8, 2014. Frontman Rick DeJesus explained to The Pulse of Radio the track is about, "feeling like you need to ask permission to do what you want, like you're under the mercy of someone else, whether it's your boss or an overbearing girlfriend or boyfriend or whoever."
  • DeJesus spoke with The Pulse Of Radio about the significance of the album title. "I've seen through the eyes of so many people, from my friends to just my peers, myself, everyone — at some point, you know, they feel stuck in life, they feel like their feet are in the mud," he said. "You know, they feel like they're trying to pull out and trying to move forward and trying to grow, and just sometimes you can't."
