Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Sonny Sandoval: "We know a couple of people that had attempted suicide in the time that we were working on this album. One was successful, one wasn't. It's a plea to people that are feeling so lost. You mean so much more, not only to the people that love you, but to the God that created you. This world is just not worth it." >>
