Songfacts®:

  • This song is about having a purpose in life and giving it your all. It's a very positive song, and one that lead singer Jamey Jasta struggled with not long after when he became disaffected with the music industry and with touring. He says that he was "ashamed" to be performing this song on stage when he really wanted to be lying in bed.

    Jasta got his mojo back for Hatebreed's next album, Supremacy, which was released in 2006.
