Scott Stapp sings on "Who I Am" of how his overbearing ego fed his self-destructive behavior during the period when Creed became one of the most successful bands in America. On this track, he confronts his ego and other negative forces.
Stapp's son Jagger, for whom he wrote "With Arms Wide Open," is now a musician himself and he wrote the opening lines for this song.
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
