Loaded And Alone

Album: Take it to the Limit (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Austin Winkler explained this song that explores the dark side of fame on their record company's website. He remarked: "I don't want to say we wrote that about a specific person, but there are people who have some success and let it go to their head. They also don't let anybody in and go through life without making any real connection [with anybody] and losing all their family and friends. We meet a lot of people like that in the industry."
  • This was released as the fourth single from Take It To The Limit.
