Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Sonny Sandoval: "Originally, the lyrics were, 'Sounds like Jah to me,' but then we realized we were talking about war. Not necessarily the war that surrounds us in these times. We're talking more about that unseen wickedness or craziness in all of us, that war within that you fight through in your own personal life everyday. And, how just knowing your strengths, you can make it through."
  • The working title for this song was "Ya Mama." >>
