Baldi explained to Radio.com
that he chose this song to lead Here and Nowhere Else
as lyrically it encapsulates the message of the whole record, which is trying to figure out yourself and what you're doing in your life. "That became very important to me once I released Attack On Memory
and started traveling and touring," he said. "It's like, 'Oh, I don't really know much about myself really. I'm not sure what I like or who I really am.'"
"So I really needed to figure that stuff out," Baldi added. "And 'I'm Not Part of Me' is about that process. How important that was for me at the time, for me to get out there."
