"Inside Out" is a defiant track where vocalist Ivan Moody recounts how his heavy drinking affected his relationships with those close to him, including his bandmates. After realizing he's the only one who can sort himself out, Moody checked himself into rehab. He has been sober since early 2018.
Speaking with Metal Hammer magazine, Moody explained the song's meaning: "It's about alcoholism. It's about my family leaving. It's about my bandmates. It's about looking at myself in the f---ing face and saying, 'Dude, you're going to have to do this because nobody else is coming.'"
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
