Songfacts®:

  • Here, Hayley Williams implores fans to stop putting her on a pedestal and look beyond her public persona. "You have to be yourself, not the person some fans think you are," she told The Sun. "Idle Worship was an important song on this record for those reasons. It stated who I was and how I felt people saw me. It helped me shed that old person once and for all."
