Songfacts®:

  • In our 2010 interview with Ryan Star, the former Rock Star: Supernova contestant explained: "That's in the spirit of 11:59, about being in the moment. That's a song screaming out 'here I am, here to show the world the cards I'm holding.' And I wrote that with a friend of mine named Max Collins - he's the singer of Eve 6. We were hanging out in California, I was living with him in his house with his wife, just connecting as friends, because I used to tour with them. And we were just getting into that state of mind, we were both like, Let's just make the statement, and this is it. And that song's been fun because it's gotten out at the sporting arenas and venues where people need to prove themselves right then and there. And there's a lot of that in me right now, so that song's really fun to listen to. I hope it gets out there big."
