Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Stephen Christian explained this song's lyrical content to Billboard magazine: "I'm so intrigued by conspiracy theories. I'm not a believer in them but I read them methodically because I think they're this cusp of reality that I can't grasp, that I can't relate to, and so it was kind of like the lyrics of the song were about conspiracy theorists and those who buy into Obama as the anti-christ. [It feels like those people] are slaves to this alternate thinking, and it's bound to destroy them. It's just bound to negate anything they've ever said as truth, and so that's what the song's about."

  • Kurt from SeattleI've seen multiple lyrics sites that say the last lines are "someone tell me your name" or something like that. But, I don't hear anything but 'someone tell me I'm wrong....about you' loud and clear. Anyone back me on this? Seems like all the sites are wrong.
