Songfacts®:

  • This is a song about the struggles of individuals with overwhelming social anxiety. They choose to isolate themselves because it's the only answer that seems to work, but at the same time there is still a lack of inner peace within their soul. So the struggle seems to never end. >>

  • Pantera bass player Rex Brown calls this a "sledgehammer jams." He says that like most of the Vulgar Display Of Power album, it came to the band quickly and naturally.
