SOJA lead singer and guitarist Jacob Hemphill told Artist Direct
the story behind this song. "I don't know if all human beings are like this, but I always have these memories I can't explain," he said. "I'll walk down a street and have déjà vu. They call it different things. I'll meet someone and I'll know I've met this person before—maybe not now but at some other point."
"Then, I'll have these dreams," Hemphill continued. "They'll be as quiet as a mouse or as loud as a thunderstorm. The dreams remind me of the things that used to be there. The lucid dreams are the ones that happen during the day when you fall asleep for twenty minutes. You have a lot more control over the dream. Once I learned I could control these daytime dreams more, I could start to use my time in the dreams to figure out these epic nighttime dreams I had. Why are these dreams showing me my reality now and what my reality in the past used to be?"
"It ties into the album theme because it all comes down to looking inside," he concluded. "It's the same as 'Treading Water
.' If you look inside, you'll realize the truth was in there somewhere."
