Songfacts®:

  • This song is a collaboration with the reggae artist Matisyahu, who performs on the track. P.O.D. lead singer Sonny Sandoval said: "The chorus is really about representing the things that you're about. When Matis (Matisyahu) came in, he really put his faith into the song, which totally blended with us. Musically, that's one of those songs that has the signature P.O.D. sound, reflecting all the diverse things we're into."

  • Harlo from Chicago, IlMatisyahu's verse that begins at 3:27 is my favorite part
  • Jim from San Diego, CaThe cool thing here is that P.O.D. are Christians and Matisyahu is Jewish. Although their religious beliefs are significantly different, they still agree in the One True God.
