  • This song finds Sleeping With Sirens singer Kellin Quinn taking stock of the band's career to date. "It kind of goes back to those early days of us touring in a van and the experience of touring, getting where you needed to go, not being afraid," the vocalist told Billboard magazine. "When you're coming up as a band you have this excitement. The only place to go is forward. So that was kind of the idea for me, thinking about the climb and the getting there, some of the most exciting parts of the journey of being in a band and being an artist, creating songs in your garage. That's where the song started for me."
