Songfacts®:

  • This song is the group's biggest crossover hit, reaching #29 on the Billboard Top 100. The song does have a Christian message, but it is implied in the song rather than highlighted. It's memorable for its video, which features several people in a laundromat while a young man is being chased by two violent thugs, ultimately hiding in the laundromat. It's been speculated that the laundromat is a metaphor for church, because of the need of people to wash themselves of sin on a frequent basis, and that the fleeing young man is seeking refuge from his troubles, as people tend to do when they get in over their head. >>
