  • Brittany from Normal, IlTHis sounds crazy but to me he was his own hero, and he realized he can't to it on his own. He sais " I have no one to free my sins" TO me it is about realizing that we need GOd in our lives, and once we do we can really live. haha that could be over analyzing a bit, but to me that is what the songs means.
  • Andrewvenom92390 from Elyria, Ohthis song is pretty much a mix of what everyone is saying. its about someones hero that they look up to, taking a fall and losing what they believed in. and now the that someone changeing roles with there hero and showing them that its not to late for anything
  • Tyler from Brantford, CanadaThis song is obviously about someone's hero, and personally, I think its about how that hero fell..this has to be one of the most meaningful songs out there, because of how much I can relate to it. When I heard it, I couldn't stop thinking about how much it related to someone I know in my life. All the lyrics match perfectly with whats happened to this friend of mine.
  • Melissa from ToledoThis is my favorite song on the album I love it so much. Papa Roach rocks!!!
