Vocalist Jacoby Shaddix
' lyrics were inspired by the breakdown of his marriage to his high-school sweetheart, Kelly. Bass guitarist and programmer Tobin Esperance
recalled to Altsounds.com
: "The lyrics on that one just came together as soon as Jacoby started singing, 'Leader of the broken hearts.' I think lyrically he was kind of at this point that not only was his heart broken because of what he was going through with his wife during the process of making the record but being on the road and having all of our fans coming up to him and saying, 'This song saved me, your lyrics mean so much to me!' I think his sentiment with that song was that he was just grabbing all of those people and just taking them in and speaking for them."
