Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Jonny Hawkins told Loudwire that the song is a critique of the way certain people in society try to force their beliefs on others. "As a band, we get a sick feeling in our stomach, an ache in our head, and a pump of blood to our fists when we witness religious and political leaders telling people how to live, as if they have some kind of monopoly on the truth," he said. "This song is about how the truth is within us all, not in a man or in society."
