Songfacts®:

  • In a November 2010 interview with Get Ready To Rock, Queensrÿche frontman Geoff Tate said of this uptempo track: "[It] was a situation of us writing about handicapped people and their determination to reach their goals. A lot of people really embraced that song, people with serious disadvantages, and we are happy about that as it was a rallying song to get behind of and kind of inspired them to seek their goals and move in the right direction."

    The Chris DeGarmo composition kicks off the Empire album; running to 5 minutes 34 seconds, it is certainly not inferior to the unrelated Rush track of the same name. >>
