Moody speaks about the insecurity, anger and helplessness he felt during his near-fatal struggle with alcohol addiction.Waiting for someone to save me
But everyone just runs away
Waiting for someone to change me
But no one ever comes
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory acknowledged there were some who wanted Moody to fail. "When it seemed like he wasn't going to make it, there were some vultures, there were some negative people," he said to Billboard
. "He's definitely lashing out against them. He saw that some people left him in the ditch, so to speak."
Bathory added that the song's message can be applied to other circumstances as well. "It's all in the lyrics, and I think either everybody has gone through something like this or knows somebody like this," he maintained. "And the lyrics are vague enough that you don't have to equate every single lyric with alcoholism. They fit all kinds of situations in life. That's when lyrics are great, when you can get adopt them to different scenarios so it will mean something else. It's not spelled out so strictly that you cannot take it in any other way than what it is."
