Album: Stanley Climbfall (2002)
Charted: 71


  • Lead singer Jason Wade: "The lyrics and chorus for this were actually written when I was 16. I first played it for [producer] Ron [Aniello] while he was cooking a steak, and he said he didn't like it. I tried to write a bridge and just couldn't, but I kept working on it. When I finally brought the song back to him, he loved it. I was going through some negative things back then, but I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'd met Ron, I was making music and I was starting to figure out where I was going. I started getting excited because I realized I didn't have to regret everything that happened to me in the past. I could tell good things were starting to happen." >>

  • Hope from Florence, MtReally? I watched "The OC" a lot, and I don't remember it ever being on there. Anyways, this song is radical and rocks hardcore.
  • Aaron from Chicago, IlTo me this song is about God and finding Salvation. The lyrics 'everything i know has let me down, so i just let go' is how everything in this world WILL let you down. God is the only thing that wont let you down. This song rocks so hard and is not one bit preachy...rare for Christian music.
  • Greg from Little River, ScOne of the songs used in the TV show on fox called The OC.
