  • Lyrics
  • In this song B.o.B takes a look at some dark times he once faced. The Atlanta rapper explained to examiner.com the inspiration for the track: "It's a song that I made when I was going through a real frustrating time. And it's always in your most frustrating moments that you make the best music because you get pushed to the limits and you just have to be honest and open and vulnerable. And songs like that you can't control it. I can't be like 'I'm just going to go in the studio and just pull this out.' You can only move when you're inspired to move and that's all just made from inspiration and not just making it to do my 9 to 5."
