A traitor is someone who betrays you. Flyleaf lead singer Kristen May wrote the lyric about the people in her life that she eventually realized were not healthy for her. "I know we're taught to love one another and forgive and really try to welcome people in with open arms, but I also think there is something to be said for calling out the people in your life that don't make sense for you and shouldn't be there," she said in our interview
. "I needed to get that out. I needed to get that feeling of, 'No, you're not good for me, there's nothing about our relationship that is healthy, and so I need to get out of this.' So that's what 'Traitor' is about."
