Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from Full Circle, Creed's first album for eight years.
  • Throughout Full Circle, frontman and principle songwriter Scott Stapp confronts his well-publicized demons, which included depression-fueled bouts with alcohol and drugs, which threatened to tear apart his relationship with his wife and family as well as his bandmates. In this song, he looks for the cleansing showers to wash away what he calls "all that garbage."
