Album: Proof of Life (2013)

  • Lyrics
  • 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.
