The song's message is about taking a negative and turning it into a positive. Shaddix explained to Consequence of Sound
"I'm a firm believer that pain for me has been a necessary element to my growth, and I think sometimes, people get it twisted and think, 'I don't want to feel this darkness or sadness,' but I think it's necessary for us to grow. It's either going to break you or build you.
For me, pain and struggle are something to use as fuel for the positive, and I think that message is very important for people right now. Especially for the youth of this world, they need to know that pain is not only necessary, but it's fuel for the fire to become better, stronger and more significant."
