This song was inspired by the theological concept that when someone becomes a Christian, they are filled with the Holy Spirit who comes to live within the believer. Their body then becomes a temple, belonging to God not to be violated, though the believer still struggles with his own human internal desires and fears. Frontman Jesse Leach explained to Artist Direct
in a 2012 interview: "To me, it's kind of a gospel song in a way. You're looking up to God and saying, 'Give me peace. Help me to see life through different eyes. Teach me your ways and allow me to safe.' It's a cry to faith."
