Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Sonny Sandoval: "Musically, this song is just so heavy. And the lyrical flow is straight, Southern hip-hop. But the lyrics themselves are really straightforward. C.S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe inspired them. There are so many different, biblical and Godly references in that book. We wanted this song to be last, because it closes it all up." >>
