After lead singer Scott Stapp was kicked out of a Christian school, he was living in an apartment with hardly anything at all. He just wrote his thoughts down on a piece of paper, which became the basis for this song.
Zero from Nowhere, NjOne of my aquintences said he didn't like Creed because "the singer was homeless for 2 days and now he has the blues" I guess he was talking about this song. (the person in question spent a few years homeless)
Joseph from Toastville, OhNo actually Scott Stapp wrote most of the songs. Good day.
Erin from Madtown, WiActually Stapp didn't write most of this song. It was mostly written by Mark Tremonti (as were most Creed songs)
Tony from Woogowoogaa, Australiasome of the lines in the song refer to additional anguish he suffered when his mother failed to pack his lunch one morning.
