Bassist Noah Sierota explained the song's meaning to The Sun: "It is about uniting for a common goal. For us, the four of us believe in music and the power of music. We have a similar message we want to bring on board. We share that message and our family being united, are coming together for the song and fighting for a cause and something we believe in."
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
