Skillet vocalist John Cooper says this track reflects his painful yet satisfying walk as a Christian. He explained to Listenin.org
: "This is a bit weird, but remember when you were a kid and your tooth is loose and it hurts so bad but you kinda want to keep doing it for some strange reason? You know what I mean? You kinda keep moving it and your like, 'I kinda like that.' That's kinda of sick, but it's like the pain of being a Christian, of realizing that your life has to end day after day. And that whole song is really about - this is really, really tough, but after the killing part comes the healing part, and that's the amazing beauty of living for Jesus in my mind."
