Songfacts®:

  • This melodic anthem was released as the fourth single from Killswitch Engage's seventh album, Incarnate. Frontman Jesse Leach told TeamRock about the tune: "On the surface, this song can definitely be seen as an upbeat, positive song, but it's written from a very different perspective. That's the great thing about having poetic license and being ambiguous, because for me this song is kind of sad. I won't say why, but it comes from a really dark place. The musicality and the riffing in it was what made me write the lyrics. I change the words every time I sing it as well, so there's a little bit of word play going on with this song."
