was "taking a swing at celebrity culture" with this song, trying to get people to connect with something other than their television sets. She explained in an interview with Patheos.com:
"I think one of the things that I've felt strongly about is not to preach, but to inspire and offer an alternative instead - to say: 'There's something else. Look over here, you might find something else.' Because our culture is so success and money-oriented, and the music business is, too. I think we all know this in a sense, but we're still on the hamster wheel even though money doesn't guarantee abundance or happiness or joy.
I think art reminds us of this. Being inspired by and lost in a song, painting, poem, story, or performance can be one of the richest experiences in life. It's such a release from all the push for us to buy things and to be what we're not."
