Songfacts®:

  • This was the first P.O.D. album to feature guitarist Marcos Curiel since their 2001 Satellite album. He left the band in controversial circumstances in early 2003 and rejoined them in December 2006.
  • Lead singer Sonny Sandoval explained to Christian Music Today about the album title: "Marcos brought the idea to the table and it initially started with the idea of not always seeing eye to eye. Obviously everybody knows we're getting back together and everyone knows [we've had] our differences, so that sparked it. Then I ran with the idea that it's also the every day dance you have with life. When you dance, only one half can lead and the other half can follow. What's in your life that pushes you in the direction that you're going in? That's of course open to interpretation, but it could be thought of as the inner struggle of good and evil, or this way and that way."
