This song finds Jacoby Shaddix
in a reflective mood as he implores:Brick by brick I've built this wall
I shut you out to break the fall
I will shed my sins
I'll show you my skeletons
"That comes from a place of secrets," Shaddix told Artist Direct
. "You're only as sick as your secrets are. As I'm living this dark life, I tend to shut people out and build this wall between me and them by not reaching back out. If they call me, I don't call them back. If I'm up to no good, I start to isolate. I build this wall around myself. I find myself in this prison, which is not a healthy place to be. There's a comfort for me in isolation, but it's a dysfunction."
"I have to realize we've all got our issues, skeletons, and secrets," he continued. "I always find freedom when I bare everything in myself and all of the darkness. If I get enough strength to break down this wall and be honest, I can be part of."
"Stylistically, I wanted the song to have this snaking groove to it.," Shaddix added. "It's got a tortured vibe to it, but the chorus is so uplifting and epic. That's one of my favorites."
